Long-standing VEKA customer and Network VEKA member, Sovereign Group Ltd, has worked with City West Housing Trust in Salford recently on an impressive domestic project.
The Nelson-based fabricator manufactured replacement windows using VEKA’s M70 profile, complete with decorative PVC-U gable frame arches for a traditional red brick terraced property in the Eccles area of Salford.
As Managing Director Frances Austin explains, the replacement windows are as close a match to the original window design as you can get in PVC-U: “It’s hard to believe that these windows are PVC-U. As you would expect from such a widely-specified system, VEKA M70 carried all the relevant accreditations and met the demands of the project when it came to price, performance and security – as well as offering obvious sustainability benefits.
“We are sure that this project will show PVC-U ‘doubters’ that VEKA’s high-spec window systems can achieve the traditional ‘look’ of conventional painted timber, with all the modern benefits of PVC-U.”
A not-for-profit organisation, City West owns 14,600 homes in West Salford, and is committed to keeping the character of the area in which they operate and providing their residents with the best of what is available, by demanding the best products at competitive prices under a procurement framework.
Sovereign Group is one of the largest and longest established VEKA fabricators in the UK, with more than 40 years experience of public sector refurbishment projects, and is City West’s preferred partner for supplying windows and doors for refurbishment projects.
