NorDan Hits Record Mark with Largest Order to Date

The first delivery of windows from NorDan, with a total value of £5.1 million was supplied to the construction site of Brunel Street Works in February. The order is the single largest taken in the company’s 90-year history.

The landmark order for the East London project was placed with NorDan last year and marks a continued partnership between NorDan and end client, Galliford Try.

Specific Demands
The project NorDan will contribute to spans a total of 19,500 m2 of windows and doors, spread out over approx. 155 floor levels. With road traffic noise and London City Airport close by, finding products that could deliver on both energy efficiency, acoustic requirements and light transmittance at the same time was a tall order. The flexible NorDan NTech platform, combined with a heat strengthened and laminated special high-performance solar control glazing, became the answer for the massive Brunel Street Works project.

Partnership and Cooperation
NorDan’s factories in Poland will manufacture the windows, and a new delivery will take place on the construction site every month for the next two years. NorDan will be delivering windows to all of the 975 residential units on the project, as well as the 152-room hotel within the development. As always, with projects of this scale, NorDan has collaborated closely with the client and architects, supplying design advice, technical compliance and cost and logistics planning.

Quote from NorDan UK General Director, Alex Brown:
NorDan has delivered windows and doors in the UK for over 25 years, and the last decade we have seen significant growth and increased interest in Norwegian designed, high performance windows and doors. This project is special to us in more than one way. In addition to being the largest single order ever placed with the company, it is also unique in that it covers all of our key customer segments. Affordable housing, PRS, private for sale and the commercial space are equally important to us, and we’re proud to be able to deliver the same quality products throughout. In addition, we take great pleasure in contributing to the regeneration projects in London. We are looking forward to supplying both this and future projects with all involved.

Quote from NorDan Group CEO, Tore Rasmussen:
This order marks a proud moment not only for our business in UK, but for the entire NorDan Group. NorDan is being trusted to supply a steadily increasing number of large-scale projects, and this has a positive impact on all our employees across Europe. In our vision to deliver more than just products, a project like this proves the value of all our skilled employees. I am proud of the way they partner with our clients, but also how we all gather behind the same goals internally within the entire NorDan group.
