Target Windows has been chosen to work on a project which will see more than 40 new affordable homes built in Cheadle, Staffordshire.
The Wrekin Housing Trust (WHT) is creating the homes for rent on land off Meadow Drive and Bank Street, and the family-run company, which has branches in Stone and Uttoxeter, will be installing the windows and doors and creating three new jobs in the process.
The development will include 22 two-bedroom homes, six three-bedroom homes, and two two-bedroom bungalows, alongside the restoration and conversion of 5 – 7 Bank Street into 12 one-bedroom apartments.
The project is located just outside Cheadle’s conservation area and the Trust says the design compliments the vernacular style of Cheadle, interpreting key features found within the architecture of the surrounding vicinity, to provide the scheme with a slightly contemporary edge.
In a design statement, Sutton and Wilkinson architects said on behalf of the Trust: “The scheme is complementary and sensitive to its immediate surroundings and the construction of interesting, vibrant, good quality dwellings will be attractive to local residents and future tenants alike.”
The new build will feature the very latest in design and technology from Target’s Optima range of UPVc windows, taking design inspiration from the older traditional properties in the area. With the conversion of 5-7 Bank Street, existing windows will be replaced with similar timber sash windows.
Guy Basnett, Director of Target Windows, said: “We are happy to be working with contractor J Harper and Sons to carry out this project for The Wrekin Housing Trust. It’s another win for our family-run company, which has seen our commercial projects double this year. As a result, we will be looking to recruit another installation team of two, plus a site manager to help us cover the massive expansion in commercial work we are currently undertaking.”
