WESTCOAST ARE SUPPLYING SWEDISH COMPOSITE WINDOWS FOR NEW £32M HOUNSLOW HOUSING SCHEME FOR FRANK TOWELL COURT
Westcoast are supplying our high performance aluminium timber Swedish composite windows for a new £31.8m housing complex, creating 102 new homes in Hounslow.
Located in Feltham, the project involves the construction of two nine storey residential towers, a four-storey block of flats and seven Mews houses. Combining a mixture of apartments, houses and maisonettes, the project will also include landscaped gardens and public realm for residents to enjoy, along with wildlife areas, a park and new pathways.
Sustainability is at the heart of Frank Towell Court’s design, with a range of energy saving and biodiversity initiatives being utilised. Photovoltaic panels will be fitted to the roof of each building to generate renewable energy, while the build will embrace a landscaping design that incorporates rain gardens, providing a sustainable method of irrigation. Further biodiversity measures include the provision of bird, bat and hedgehog boxes, as well as a bee/bird bath.
Working with contractor Willmott Dixon, Westcoast will be supplying 2,000m2 of our high performance composite windows for the project. Westcoast Swedish composite windows consist of an outer part of powder coated aluminium, which is resistant to harsh weather conditions, and an inner part of wood for a warmer feel indoors. This combination offers the maximum lifespan and minimum maintenance, with exceptional levels of energy efficiency.
The low maintenance aluminium exterior will be finished in RAL7023 Concrete grey and the warm wood interior in white.
