From Derelict to Cutting Edge Development

Milwood Homes recently turned to Cutting Edge uPVC Frames & Roofs for the complete supply and installation of all windows, doors and roofline products on the development of a brownfield site in Staffordshire.

The site at Silverdale Road, Silverdale, Newcastle-under-Lyme was previously a derelict car tyre depot and fits in with Milwood Homes’s philosophy of developing existing brownfield sites, to help safeguard the environment in the future. With vision, the housebuilder has transformed this site with the building of a cleverly designed and constructed courtyard of three-story, semi-detached and terraced properties.

Cutting Edge specified their Profile 22, Enviroframe window and door system, which incorporates 100% Recycled Composite Material (RCM) thermal inserts, with an ‘A’ rating for energy efficiency, along with a dummy transom to give a ‘cottage look.’ The company was involved from the prebuild stage, supplying their BBA-accredited, 100% recycled thermally efficient cavity-formers and they also supplied all the necessary roofline products from their Trade Counter, at Grove Road, Fenton, Stoke-on-Trent.

In total, Cutting Edge provided, 180 insulated cavity formers, 140 Enviroframe Windows, 20 Enviroframe French Doors, 20 Enviroframe Residential Doors (with Part M-compliant thresholds) and roofline to all properties.

Martyn Shaw, director of Milwood Homes commented: ‘Cutting Edge is a perfect fit for us as a business as we can work jointly with them to develop bespoke product specifications that fit in with our own environmental credentials. They are also a flexible and dynamic supplier for us, which really helps us on site.’

Mal Whitehurst, installations director of Cutting Edge concluded: ‘This was a great showcase of what we can offer the housing developer from product specification through to installation. We’ve built a great relationship with Milwood Homes and are now working on their next development.’
