4000 Halo windows for social housing project

Yorkshire Windows, a long-standing Halo customer has been busy installing thousands of new replacement windows in the Chesterfield area for a Rykneld Homes, an Arms Length Management Organisation (ALMO).

When the leading Rotherham-based fabricator and installer was asked to provide a solution to help retrofit 4,000 windows for the social housing project, the company chose to supply the System10 chamfered profile system from industry-leading Halo, as Jonathan Bailey Operations Director explains.

“We decided to supply and install the System10 range from Halo as it was the perfect choice to meet the high specification required by D&B Keepmoat Group for this particular project. The project was an External Wall Insulation (EWI) scheme, with the aim of reducing carbon and Keepmoat were particularly interested in the System10 clip-on cill, which is retro-fitted after the EWI work has been completed.

“Based on a range of 62mm or 70mm sections, System10 utilises the same sash, bead, gaskets and ancillary sections to provide low maintenance performance for the end user, making it the ideal range for window replacement programmes in the social housing market. The windows we have installed are white casements, fabricated from the System10 profile to match the existing stock.”

Rykneld Homes is responsible for the management, maintenance and improvement of over 8,100 properties and the neighbourhoods in which they are located on behalf of North East Derbyshire District Council. The contractor for this particular project was Keepmoat – a provider of residential regeneration and development projects in the UK. The company was formed in 2012 as the result of a merger between Apollo and the Keepmoat Group of companies – Bramall Construction, Frank Haslam Milan, Milnerbuild and Keepmoat Homes.

Yorkshire Windows has been manufacturing and installing double glazing, composite doors, conservatories and roofline for customers throughout Yorkshire for more than 33 years. Jonathan concludes:

“We are happy to work in partnership with Rykneld Homes as we are well aware that our responsibilities extend to the communities in which we operate, and the wider environment as a whole, so working with Rykneld Homes to provide brighter futures for communities was great.”
