A package of windows, screens and doors was supplied by NorDan to a new £6.7m care home in the north east.
Stonehaven Care Village was built by Morrison Construction Services for Aberdeenshire Council and the 60-bed facility replaces the former Edenholme residential home. There are also eight single-storey apartments.
NorDan supplied top of the range alu-clad timber windows, screens and composite entrance doors and according to Graeme Milne, key account manager at the Aberdeen office: “It was important that we were involved at the early design stage of this project to assist our client in planning the window and screen designs. With our technical input to the design, our client was able to maximise the sustainability of this building using low u-values in the glazing options and designing in as much natural light as possible to the care home building.”
The company manufactured double glazed alu-clad windows, doors and screens and pre-finished NTech 1.2 tilt and turn with u values of 1.2 w/m2K from its NTech Villa range for the care home, and pre-finished NTech 1.2 tilt and turn timber windows and entrance doors for the cottages. The composite doors are manufactured in NorDan’s Bordorren factory in Sweden.
Project management was by Aberdeenshire Council Infrastructure Services with Fairhurst as structural engineer.
