250 Spectus Elite 70 windows installed in a new Greater Manchester new build development
September 29, 2021
Longstanding Spectus fabricator Jade Windows has just completed the manufacture and installation of 250 Spectus Elite 70 casement windows and 12 sets of French doors in an exclusive development of 19 two, four and five-bedroom cottage-style apartments and townhouses in Monton, Greater Manchester.
The project was a Homes England-funded new build development on behalf of Snugg Homes, part of the Jigsaw Housing Group. The project’s main contractor was Tyson Construction and Jade Windows secured the window and door contract thanks to an impressive track record of working with Tyson on previous contracts.
To help create the modern cottage style the project required, the window specification was for high quality casement windows in black woodgrain foiling. All the windows and doors needed to meet PAS 24:2016 and Secured by Design requirements.
The project took six months to complete and faced the same issues as every other project that’s taken place during the pandemic. As a highly experienced contractor, Jade Windows was able to mitigate and manage the difficulties. Its expertise is recognised in its status as a Spectus Approved Commercial Manufacturer, which means it has proved its capabilities and is able to meet the highest quality and service standards. Ryan Fozard, Director at Jade Windows commented: “We had to deal with the global shortage of materials as a result of the pandemic, but we worked closely with Tyson to ensure realistic time frames and meet set deadlines. This meant exceptional project management was required at every stage. We also had to be mindful of the people involved – we took extra safety precautions to ensure the health of our staff and were particularly respectful of other trades on site.”
Jordan Whelan, Contracts Manager at Tyson Construction, said: “We worked closely with Jade Windows to ensure a controlled installation was achieved. There is no doubt that the professionalism and expertise of the Jade team were instrumental in ensuring the project ran smoothly.”
Now that the new vibrant city development is complete, Ryan and his team can look back on a job well done. “Our solid relationship with Tyson and the trusted quality of the Spectus products allowed us to deliver this project with confidence. We are proud that we’ve delivered a high-quality installation that is providing much-needed new housing in the area.”
