Consisting of a mix of affordable homes and family housing, the development will also include enhanced social infrastructure with more than 13,000 square metres of public space including new streets, parks and sports facilities.
NorDan is supplying products from our NTech range, specifically the double glazed aluminium clad timber top swing fully reversible window and balcony doors, as well as the NTech front entrance door. This range of products were selected as it was the most cost-effective way of meeting both the thermal and acoustic requirements for the project, as well the impressive sustainability and the long life-cycle of the product which is 60+ years.
The development has been highly commended for regenerating the estate and local area. At the London Evening Standard New Home Awards, Acton Gardens won the award for ‘Outstanding Approach to Regeneration’.
