Over 22,000m2 of VELFAC composite glazing is now installed at Colindale Gardens, the new community being built in North West London by award winning developer Redrow. Set over 47 acres, Colindale Gardens combines high quality apartments and townhouses with extensive landscaped gardens and resident’s facilities. The development provides much needed housing for the local area and includes affordable options and homes for first-time buyers.

Stylish and contemporary

VELFAC aluminium / timber windows and patio doors are installed in 11 multi-storey residential blocks across the Colindale Gardens development. White-painted internal VELFAC timber frames help create stylish and contemporary interiors, while the slim frame construction also brings additional daylight into every home. Externally, the low maintenance aluminium frames, finished in RAL 7022 (Umbra Grey), provide a focal point for the dramatic, brick-built external facades which have become a local landmark.

Excellent insulation

Excellent thermal insulation (U-values as low as 8W/m2K for triple glazing) make an important contribution to Colindale Garden’s low energy design, and all ground floor glazing is also SBD accredited. In addition, the VELFAC system’s environmental credentials support Redrow’s sustainability strategy – for example, all timber used in VELFAC frames is FSC-certified, and every window and door is 93% recyclable.

Uniform sightlines

A strategic mix of double and triple glazed VELFAC units deliver optimal acoustic performance across a site which borders a nearby railway line, all achieved without interruption to the façade finish thanks to uniform frame sightlines. This combination of design versatility and operational performance, together with cost-effective pricing, has helped VELFAC secure a series of contracts at Colindale Gardens, as the added value VELFAC provided could not be matched by alternative window systems.
