PROJECT: Wimbledon Park Estate
PROJECT OVERVIEW: Install side-hung casement and tilt/turn windows in £2.2 million refurbishment
SCOPE: Nearly 3,000 VEKA M70 frames installed
MAIN CONTRACTOR: Mulalley
PROFILE SYSTEM: VEKA
It’s a tough decision for any SME – risk stepping into your biggest contract ever or to play it safe and lose out on a big chunk of business. It was less of a dilemma for us, as we had the backing of the Glazerite UK Group as well as VEKA who were crucial in tackling the job.
Director of Adeva, Geoff Dwyer explained after completing the installation of nearly 3,000 windows and doors as part of a £2.2 million refurbishment of Wandsworth Wimbledon Park
We installed the A-Rated, SBD specification and doors based on the VEKA M70 system in white,
for main contractor Mulalley and Company Ltd of Woodford Green on behalf of the London Borough of Wandsworth. VEKA also carried out the wind load calculations for the design
“The job was not without its challenges, firstly in removing the original Crittal steel frames, which were not only set into concrete but many had to be taken out in a single three metre by two metre piece.”
“Also the new frames were an unusual combination of side hung casement and tilt/ turns which might have been a problem for some fabricators, though Glazerite took them it is stride.
This was a very substantial piece of work, and by far our biggest contract to date.”
