Optima windows were chosen for the construction of 18 houses, 38 flats and two retail units as part of a regeneration scheme in Maidstone, Kent.
Housing association Golding Homes has invested £50m in a three phase regeneration project to transform and improve the former Park Wood estate in Maidstone. The scheme involved providing over 200 new homes, mainly family houses, as well as new community facilities including new shops, and a much wider package of investment to improve the local area.
Optima from Profile 22 delivers optimal thermal performance, achieving a 1.2 W/m2K U-value as standard, with U-values as low as 0.8 W/m2K possible. It is PAS24 compliant as standard with Secured by Design options available as well. In its aesthetics and versatility, it sits comfortably in any architectural style.
The project involved the demolition of an outdated shopping parade to create a more pedestrian orientated environment, landscaped areas and improved public realm spaces. The homes and commercial blocks have a modern design inspired by the local Kent architecture, drawing inspiration from the traditional housing of the region including cladding, weatherboarding and render with a mix of flat and pitched roofs. The Optima windows sit perfectly in the design.
