Profile 22 has aided the £4.5million regeneration of 70 flats at Stonelow Green in Dronfield, supplying a casement window solution through its approved window contractor, Polar Windows. Over an 18 month period Registered Provider and housing management company for North East Derbyshire District Council, Rykneld Homes completed a comprehensive refurbishment on the five blocks of flats (70 homes).
There were a number of key drivers behind the refurbishment; improving energy efficiency and reducing maintenance costs were both high on the list. The window solution helped eradicate cold spots within the building, and worked with the external wall insulation (EWI) to improve the thermal performance of the blocks.
Rykneld Homes and the Council worked with the Stonelow Green residents, the local community and planning authority to choose a tonal colour scheme for the blocks. The new windows, in grey, complement the fresh rendered exterior, a combination of white, honey and terracotta tones.
With the regeneration of Stonelow Green there have been improvements to tenants quality of life by future-proofed the blocks and reduced the repair and maintenance expenditure in the short and long-term. These works have not only made the flats more comfortable for tenants they have also vastly reduced the complex’s CO² footprint.
