Profile 22 has been specified on a major home energy efficiency improvement programme, replacing windows and doors across its properties with new high performance energy efficient windows for Bournville Works Housing Society.
Set up in 1919 to provide housing for employees and pensioners of chocolatiers, Cadbury, it manages and maintains 314 homes in the Bournville area of Birmingham.
The programme, which began last year, includes the wholesale replacement of old windows, for the most part original 1920s timber installations, with WER ‘A’ rated energy efficient PVC-U replacements.
The preservation of the area’s unique character through sympathetic replacement of these timber original windows forms, as a consequence, a central element of the two-year delivery programme.
Working in partnership with BWHS and commercial window manufacturer Stafford, Profile 22 developed a specification featuring the systems company’s cream wood grain foil finish to deliver a near perfect match to timber originals.
Sam Chatterley, chair, Bournville Works Housing Society, said: “The aesthetics were important to us. We didn’t want to damage or undermine the character of individual properties or the area at large.
“The cream wood grain delivered a near perfect match to originals.”
