Over 300 Optima casement windows and 60 doors from Profile 22 have been manufactured and installed in an 85-bedroom care home and 45 assisted living apartments in Sutton Coldfield. Suppliers had to meet exacting standards and quality specifications for the project.
The window and door contract was awarded to Sutton Designs in Kingstanding, Birmingham, with manufacturing undertaken by Profile 22’s approved commercial manufacturer, Central Window Systems in West Bromwich. The two companies have worked on previous care projects, and have a proven track record for meeting the tender requirements.
The window and door system specified for the project was award-winning Optima, from Profile 22. The high-specification system comes with an impressive set of credentials and design flexibility to meet all commercial project requirements. In this project, all windows were fitted with open-out restrictors for the safety of the residents and all window and doors needed to comply with fire and smoke escape protection measures.
Optima offers structural strength and high-security features. The casement windows are PAS24:2016 approved as standard, which was important to meet the project specification. The windows and doors were manufactured in anthracite grey on white, to match other developments in the building contractor’s portfolio and to create a sleek, modern aluminium aesthetic.
Sutton Designs is an experienced new build and commercial window installation company and has worked with Central Window Systems for over three years. The two companies worked in close partnership to ensure that all windows and doors were manufactured and installed to the required timescales.
The completed project will provide modern and well-equipped homes for the residents. Jon Gregory, owner of Sutton Design, said: “The quality of Optima from Profile 22 and the commercial expertise of Central Window Systems were fundamental to the project’s success. This is a very impressive development and we were delighted to have been part of its construction.”
