For Mears Projects
Asset Fineline were employed by Mears Projects to undertake the replacement of existing steel windows in 16 blocks of 5 storey properties owned by Islington Council.
There were over 4 years in the planning process and as a long-standing supplier to Islington Council, Asset Fineline were the contractor of choice.
The 190-property project was undertaken over the course of 18 months and was completed in accordance with the agreed programme.
Due to its complex nature, the project itself required an increased level of liaison and communication with all key stakeholders involved in deciding the programme combined with all the practical aspects of window style and design. This therefore required a technically competent and design led approach in full consultation with Islington Council, Mears and the Resident Representatives throughout.
Chair, Residents’ Steering Group.
Islington Council through its relationship with Agility Energy were able to secure funding for the scheme under the Energy Company Obligation. To meet the criteria set under the ECO obligation all installations must be undertaken by a PAS 2030 approved company. Asset Fineline have been approved since 2013 and remain one of the few window companies who continue to hold the PAS 2030 certification.
