Steel Window Association (SWA) member, REA Metal Windows, has completed work on the Grade II listed Dantzic on the NOMA estate in Manchester. Situated near Manchester Victoria train station, Dantzic, NOMA has been transformed into 45,000 sq ft of office space.
Russell WBHO was the main contractor on this project and, after a competitive tender, Rea Metal Windows successfully secured the work. After initially completing a site survey of the selected area, REA supplied 203 W20 steel windows; replicating the original window fenestration. 1600 individual frames were required for this project and each one of them was hot dipped, galvanised and polyester painted to a RAL 9001 semi-gloss (cream) finish. Once installed into their respective openings on site, the frames were glazed with Part L compliant 16mm krypton gas filled double glazed units.
SWA members have exclusive access to a range of collectively developed energy- rated systems which are compliant with building regulations and that are recognised by the British Fenestration Rating Council (BFRC). The SWA also works in cooperation with both the British and European standards agencies, window research bodies and other influential organisations; including FENSA and as mentioned above, the Construction Products Association and the Glass & Glazing Federation. Members of the Steel Window Association offer a UK wide service for the repair and replacement of various types of old metal windows, doors and screens, as well as being able to manufacture new fenestration which fully meets the requirements of the building regulations. Choosing an SWA member to manufacture and install your steel windows and doors ensures that you are receiving the highest standard of fabrication, installation and customer service.
