Challenging project shows Shelforce capabilities

When Birmingham City Council needed a company to design, supply and install energy efficient windows and doors for the refurbishment of seven high rise tower blocks they knew who to turn to for help.

Shelforce have been providing high-quality products to local authority building projects around the country for a number of years, including for Birmingham City Council, so they were the perfect fit for what was a hugely challenging project.

The Birmingham-based window and door manufacturer had to replace windows and doors for 238 flats on a site with very limited access and busy public highways on all sides.

However, thanks to Shelforce’s logistical management, the project ran smoothly without any lost build time and the project was completed in just 18 weeks.

Shelforce provided the structures with RAL 7016 grey external/white internal windows and doors and balcony infill’s for the 238 flats and supplied “A+” rated energy efficient windows to provide a unique and highly efficient solution to meet the Council’s requirements.

While Shelforce makes it their mission to help provide quality housing for the wider community, it will come as no surprise that the company is also aware of its social responsibility.

In fact, when it comes to training and employment opportunities in the glass and glazing industry, the full Eurocell systems supplier is leading the way in inclusivity by employing and training people with a range of disabilities, thus ensuring equal opportunities for all.

Howard Trotter, Business Manager of Shelforce, commented:

“The seven storey tower blocks were an extremely challenging project, but it really showcases what we can do here at Shelforce.

“We ensure that each housing project is always on time thanks to our flexibility and quick lead times and we work closely with clients to ensure that we only supply the highest quality products to allow everyone to enjoy a comfortable and safe home.”

A spokesperson for Birmingham City Council commented:

“We have worked on numerous projects with Shelforce and they delivered once again on this one. Their products are all the highest quality and offer everything you could need from energy efficiency to aesthetic value and effective security.

“Couple that with the work they do in terms of inclusive employment and they bring a unique approach that cannot be beaten.”
