NorDan windows to feature with Ardmore at Heathside and Lethbridge

NorDan has won a contract to supply its NTech range of Scandinavian timber windows, StormGuard three handled windows and glazed single and double balcony doors to Ardmore Construction for the £50m Phase 4 project – at Heathside and Lethbridge in Lewisham, South East London for Family Mosaic Housing Association.

Ardmore’s development director, Chris Langdon, said:

“Being appointed on the latest phase of this significant regeneration scheme was a real achievement for the team. We are equally pleased to have cemented our ongoing relationship with key supply chain partners such as NorDan who have tremendous experience of working with us on important regeneration schemes. We have been able to develop excellent ties with the local community over the past five years, and we are looking forward to building further on these, especially in making use of the skills and expertise of our local supply chain to boost regeneration in the area.”

Key account manager, Nick Goult from NorDan says

“Our timber window products are ideal for urban regeneration schemes and tall buildings across the UK. Ardmore is engaged to regenerate the Heathside and Lethbridge estate by following a complicated series of decants and new construction work to replace the older and out-of-date accommodation and have been appointed to construct 644 apartments. Phase 4 development is formed by a combination of two blocks with 7 cores, containing a total of 232 residential units. One block rises to 13 storeys, with the others ranging from 4 – 5 storeys.”

“We are providing outward opening fully reversible timber windows which have a u value of 1.2 w/m2k. The G-values vary across the development with 0.35, 0.5 and 0.61. Our standard acoustic values of 37dB Rw are on all these NorDan products in this development.”

“Our unique 3 handled StormGuard windows are ideally suited for high rise buildings and for these open corridor areas where the windows cannot open outwards, but still have that functionality for facilities managers.” 

StormGuard windows have a removable third handle to provide additional safety but keep ease of use (inward opening on the third handle) for cleaning and repairs.

Rob Warwick, Regeneration Manager at Family Mosaic, commented:

“Family Mosaic is delighted to continue our partnership with Ardmore at this flagship regeneration project. Ardmore is extremely experienced in the delivery of complex estate regeneration projects, and we are excited that the next phase of regenerating this area of Lewisham will soon get underway.”

Heathside and Lethbridge is one of London’s biggest estate regeneration programmes, and is planned to be carried out over six phases. The regeneration works being undertaken by Family Mosaic and the London Borough of Lewisham are transforming the estates into an attractive mixed tenure development, with over 1200 high-quality private and affordable homes.

Work began on site in October 2015, and is due for completion in 2018.

In just 40 years, Ardmore has become one of the largest family owned construction groups in the UK. Working across the country, their reputation is strongest in London where the firm is known as “London’s builder.” The firm built the Corinthia hotel and are lead contractors for the multiphase regeneration of Heathside and Lethbridge, and a tier-one contractor for Greenwich Peninsula

NorDan celebrated 90 years in business this year, and making timber windows in Scandinavia for that time. The firm has 8 factories across Europe providing the capability to supply high quality products in large volumes for the UK construction market.
