Profile 22’s Optima selected for affordable housing development in Glasgow

900 Optima casement windows and French door units in Anthracite Grey have been fitted in a development of 82 new build houses to the north of Glasgow.

A brownfield site, formerly the home of the NHS Orchards hospital was acquired by Keepmoat Homes for the development of the 82 two- and three-bedroom homes in seven different styles. The contract for the windows and French doors on the homes was awarded to Glasgow-based Profile 22 Approved Window Contractor Gold Seal Windows.

Optima is the award-winning 70mm system for Profile 22. Its casement windows are available in sculptured and chamfered variations. Aesthetically, Optima casement windows offer improved sightlines and a higher glass-to-frame ratio. The system meets all requirements for thermal efficiency as standard and offers a wealth of intelligent design features. And double and triple glazing options mean thermal efficiency can be enhanced to meet a project’s specified standards, up to and including 0.8 W/m²K or A++.

With 82 houses being built to a demanding schedule, Gold Seal Windows needed to draw on all its experience of working on busy construction sites. Thanks to careful project management and effective communication, the Gold Seal Windows’ installation team was able to install all 900 units on time and on budget.

Demand for affordable housing in and around Glasgow is growing. Homes in The Orchard provide a high-quality option for first time buyers, growing families and downsizers alike. John McNamee, Director of Gold Seal Windows, said: “As a local company, we know how important developments like this are for the local community. We were delighted to win the contract for this work and delighted to see the high-quality result.”
