Over 500 Profile 22 Optima Flush Casement Windows were installed in a private housing development in Whalley Range, Manchester.
Laurus Homes, a profit-for-purpose housing developer that is part of Trafford Housing Trust, secured planning permission to build 13 four-bedroom houses and 16 two-bedroom apartments in Whalley Range.
The main contractor for the project was Lane End Group. The contract for the windows and doors in the development was awarded to Profile 22 Approved Contractor Kingfisher Windows. Profile 22 Optima Flush Casement Windows deliver specifications required.
The development, near a local conservation area, needed to be complement the aesthetics of the local architecture.
Nick Anderson, Development Manager at Laurus Homes, said: “At Laurus Homes, we demand the highest quality specifications for every part of the homes we develop. The windows we choose are no different. After ensuring the windows are code and planning compliant, we look for quality and innovation as well as durability. Most importantly, we require our windows to be easy to use, easy to maintain and essentially a worry-free component for our customers.”
Jonny Reynolds, Technical Director at Kingfisher Windows, said: “The Optima Flush Casement Window offers the perfect solution for developments in areas protected by conservation orders that need a window that replicates the 19th-century timber window design, whilst offering modern features and benefits.”
Like all Profile 22 products the Optima Flush Casement Window System is produced to BS EN 12608 and manufactured to BS EN ISO 9001. It adheres to the requirements of the Environmental Management System BS EN ISO 14001 and the Responsible Sourcing standard BES 6001.

The windows for the Scholars Walk development were fabricated in grey on white to deliver a striking but architecturally conservative appearance.
