In addition to the ‘A’-rated white casement windows, the Merseyside-based PVC-U and aluminium window and door fabricator also supplied PVC-U French doors for the rear of the properties, built by Countryside Properties for Liverpool Mutual Homes.

The 40 new eco-friendly homes were built on vacant land adjacent to Broad Lane where LMH last year completed a £4m scheme transforming 74 derelict properties earmarked for demolition a decade ago into eco-homes.

Total Glass had also manufactured and supplied the thermally-efficient PVC-U windows with a 1.4 W/m².K u-value in a grey on white foiled finish for this refurbishment scheme, which incorporated similar energy-saving features to the new homes, including solar panels.

The new development includes four two-bedroom bungalows, 22 two-bed houses designed for four people, 12 three-bed houses catering for four people, and two four-bed houses designed for six people.

Solar panels and double-glazed windows enable the properties to reach Level Three of the Code for Sustainable Homes resulting in fuel bills being halved and carbon emissions cut by nearly two thirds.

Mark Formby, Commercial Manager at Total Glass commented: “We are proud to have been involved in yet another successful fenestration project for our long-standing client LMH, which has delivered much-needed energy-efficient, secure new homes and transformed a derelict area into a pleasant and thriving community.”
