Over 300 Optima casement windows and 60 doors from Profile 22 have been manufactured and installed in a new 85-bed care home and 45 assisted living apartments in Sutton Coldfield. The developer is renowned for delivering exceptional quality projects, which meant suppliers had to meet exacting standards and quality specifications.
The window and door contract was awarded to Sutton Designs in Kingstanding, Birmingham, with manufacturing undertaken by Profile 22’s Approved Commercial Manufacturer, Central Window Systems in West Bromwich. The two companies had worked on previous care projects, which meant that as well as being able to demonstrate their ability to meet the tender requirements for this project they also brought a proven track record.
The window and door system specified for the project was award-winning Optima from Profile 22. The high-specification system comes with an impressive set of credentials and design flexibility to meet all commercial project requirements. In this project, all windows were fitted with open-out restrictors for the safety or the residents and all window and doors needed to comply with fire and smoke escape protection measures.
Optima offers market-leading structural strength and high-security features and casement windows are PAS24:2016 approved as standard which was important to meet the project specification.
The windows and doors were manufactured in Anthracite Grey on White to match other developments in the building contractor’s portfolio and create a sleek, modern aluminium aesthetic.
Sutton Designs is an experienced new build and commercial window installation company and has worked with Central Window Systems for over three years. The two companies worked in close partnership to ensure all windows and doors were manufactured and installed to the required timescales. The project was completed during the Covid-19 pandemic, which meant appropriate health and safety considerations also needed to be taken into account.
The completed project will provide modern and well-equipped homes for the residents. Jon Gregory, Owner of Sutton Design concluded: “The quality of Optima from Profile 22 and the commercial expertise of Central Window Systems were fundamental to the project’s success. This is a very impressive development and we were delighted to have been part of its construction.”
