Spectus Flush Tilt & Turn Windows chosen for new build extra care development

200 Spectus Flush Tilt & Turn Windows were specified for a 60-home extra care development in Grimsby.

Burchester Court is an extra care development in Grimsby. It was developed by Living Plus, which is part of the Places for People Group, and has been delivered in partnership with Morgan Sindall Later Living, North East Lincolnshire CCG and Homes England.

Designed for people who are aged 55 and over, the development enables residents to live independently in their own contemporary apartment with the reassurance of on-site care and support facilities to help them remain in their own home for longer.

It is a three-storey building comprising 60 one and two-bedroom apartments, all with accessible and open plan living space and substantial bedrooms.

With contemporary design a key feature of the development, the window contractor choices were critical.

The contract was awarded to experienced Spectus Approved Window Contractor, Jade Windows (Brighouse) Ltd.

Spectus Flush Tilt & Turn Windows were specified for the project.

Spectus Flush Tilt & Turn Windows are an ideal solution for both medium and high-rise buildings such as residential housing, offices, hospitals and universities.

It has been specifically designed to prevent the framework from overlapping to give a more ‘flush’ appearance.

A high-performance centre seal system with optional third weather seal means the window can achieve a Window Energy Rating of A++ with double glazing and a U-value of 0.8 W/(m2K) with triple glazing.

In this project, the sleek look of the windows, combined with a grey on white colour, created the contemporary look required.

The safety specifications for the contract were particularly demanding, as befits a project of this nature.

Jade Windows worked closely with the in-house Spectus Commercial Team to conduct load bearing tests on the specified window restrictors to BS EN 14351-1, load-bearing capacity of safety devices (350N), to ensure they delivered the level of safety required.

Burchester Court was constructed in 2020 during the Coronavirus pandemic, which meant site safety protocols were more stringent than ever.

Jade Windows worked closely with project contractors and all trades on site to protect the health and safety of all personnel involved as well as delivering the project on time.

The development process has greatly benefitted Grimsby, bringing new homes and creating jobs.

Andy Lomas, Managing Director of Living Plus, one of the partners on the project, said: "We are delighted to complete this building – the foundations for a new community hub here in Grimsby, which is raising the design bar, with a fantastic collection of new homes for people who need them.

"The building will offer excellent services to our customers, enabling them to feel included, supported and helping to tackle loneliness as well as ensuring they feel part of a community.
