Westcoast Windows are pleased to supply their Swedish manufactured composite windows and sliding doors for the stunning ‘Stargazer’ project in East Wittering
Westcoast Windows design and manufacture Swedish contemporary composite aluminium wood windows and doors, for customers who demand high performance, energy efficiency and exceptional quality.
They were pleased to work with their Distributor Partner Wayne Windows in supplying their composite windows and sliding doors for this prestigious development on the South coast for property developer Parnell Homes.
Parnell Homes are bespoke home builders, based in West Sussex, creating unique homes of distinction. They were looking for high performance windows for a new seafront beach house development and Westcoast Windows were able to provide their Swedish manufactured composite windows and sliding doors to fit their specification.
Matt Simmons, Director of Parnell Homes commented:
“The window and door market is a minefield and it was important for us as a high end developer to find a product that was suitable for this particular project. ‘Stargazer’ our latest development is located directly on the seafront so it was critical for us to choose windows and doors that not only suited the location but worked with our design and end vision. Working closely with our architect Ben Smith from BIS design and Martin Dixon from Wayne Windows we chose Westcoast Windows.
It is always a difficult to choose windows early in the process and requires a lot of pre-planning in precise measurements and working on lead times to make things fit in place according to your timescale, long before any other process has taken place. This was a commercial project for Parnell Homes and we couldn’t afford to have window openings exposed for a long period, especially on its seafront location. Much time was spent working out windows sizes and finished floor heights to ensure correct fitting and the all important flush thresholds that everyone likes to achieve. Logistics for movement to and on the site had to be carefully planned as access to the house was tight, so a large tele-handler was used to move the large doors in place and movement of scaffolding was pre-arranged. Luckily for us we control the entire build from the ground up, including building our own timber frames with our sister company Amelia Timber Structures. This control means that our carpenters continue to work throughout the project with complete clarity.
Ultimately our reasons for choosing Westcoast Windows were that they could provide us with the exact spec we required at a good price point by comparison and the lead time was honoured in accordance with Wayne Windows fitting schedule. Importantly they were able to produce the large sliding doors to the first floor without including a central bar unlike other manufacturers. This was important for the design and use of the space, I liked that the windows are manufactured independently from other brands and feel like they have a more of a customer focused approach, which meant I could contact them directly through a UK based agent with any queries we had along the way.”
As Matt mentions, the Westcoast Windows Classic Series, double-glazed composite sliding doors were an ideal choice for the development, with their smooth sliding action they provide easy access to the outside. The property was fitted with a range of composite windows and doors from the Classic Series, including Top Hung Projecting (TSG45), Open Out Door (FDG & FDGD) and Fixed Light dummy sash (FKG). The low maintenance aluminium exterior and warm wood interior were both finished in clean bright white to suit the style of the build. The 28mm double-glazed Classic Series windows and doors are a unique bonded composite construction with aluminium exterior for a long life-span and knot-free timber internally for a stylish, classic look.
Additionally Parnell Homes added a lovely design touch of an anchor, beach hut and boat in the frosting film to some of the windows that required privacy.
We are also pleased to announced that the property is a finalist for the Premier Guarantee excellence award in a single unit development. The winner will be announced at a ceremony in the Shard in mid October – we wish them the best of luck.
