Long-standing Veka fabricator Grosvenor Windows has removed, recycled and replaced 160 windows for a Macclesfield housing association.
Working with Veka and Veka Recycling, Grosvenor was not only able to recycle the old frames, but also install high quality recycled Veka systems into Arcon’s Fir Court development.
Grosvenor Windows’ Dominic Mills explained: “We’ve worked with Arcon Housing Association a number of times before. They know the quality of our work is top notch – both fabrication and installation – and that the systems we provide meet all the relevant specification requirements. For this project, we used Veka’s Infinity recycled system which the client was very impressed with. It has a core of up to 80% recycled PVC-U and then just a skin of virgin polymer to ensure it looks exactly like new. This means it has all the same benefits as brand ‘new’ frames when it comes to style, weather performance, security, energy efficiency etc – but it also ticks a very important box for sustainability.
“Here at Grosvenor, our reputation is incredibly important to us and we’re pleased to have completed another project in time and on budget for Arcon, with minimal disturbance for residents, as well as having championed the benefits of Veka’s closed-loop recycling system.”
Arcon’s building surveyor, David Hutchinson, said: “The windows that have been fitted are Veka systems, which are excellent quality and provide our tenants with aesthetically pleasing windows and warmer, more efficient homes from an energy point of view.
“We have worked with Grosvenor and specified Veka many times before as the products are all first-class and fully guaranteed. Their installation team was also second to none which meant that there was minimum disruption to tenants during the re-fit. This was underlined by a very high tentants’ satisfaction survey result of 96%.”
