For Wates Living Space
Lancaster Gardens – East Finchley
Working for Wates Living Space as one of its principal fenestration contractors, Asset Fineline has fabricated and installed the windows and doors for the Lankaster Gardens development in East Finchley.
This newbuild social housing development was created by Wates Living Space to provide 105 residential properties, including 32 general need units, 20 shared ownership flats and 53 homes for outright sale. The site also accommodates one commercial unit.
Darren Sowter at Asset Fineline said:
“Lankaster Gardens is a stunning development with a variety of surface finishes including brickwork, render and timber boarding, plus the shape is a combination of flat and curved surfaces. By working closely with Wates from the outset, we planned for and overcame the challenges that the design raised. These included the different window-to-construction interfaces and the large size of many of the windows and doors where very limited space was available to manoeuvre the product to its location.”
One Housing Group specified Secured by Design for Lankaster Gardens which Asset Fineline accommodated with the windows and doors. The development is the latest addition to the portfolio of over 12,000 homes that One Housing Group currently manages in 26 local authorities across London and adjacent counties. The Group also has more than 2,400 homes in the development pipeline. The success of the Lankaster Gardens project demonstrates the benefit to RSLs of a strong, reliable supply chain.
