Crest Nicholson chooses energy efficient Scandinavian timber

Leading UK developer Crest Nicholson chose energy efficient Scandinavian timber windows from NorDan for its development at Bath Riverside Victoria Bridge Road. From studios to penthouse apartments, the development has transformed Bath’s western riverfront into a modern residential quarter.

NorDan’s 1.2NTech inward opening tilt and turn windows and inward/outward pairs of doors have an additional aluminium cladding finish to extend their life in use. The aluminium protects the timber and is easy to replace if damaged.  NorDan has been making timber windows in Norway for over 90 years, with a programme of continuous development seeing the firm innovate on the design of its products year after year.  Sustainability and energy efficiency as well as safety and security are key features designed into every window and door product.

Crest Nicholson is firmly established as one of the UK’s leading developers with a passion for creating vibrant and sustainable communities. No surprise then, that NorDan’s aluminium clad timber windows were chosen for their sustainable credentials.  With a Standard u value of 1.2w/m2K NorDan’s windows and doorsets keep heating bills to a minimum whilst letting in the maximum natural daylight.

Says Scott Black, managing director Crest Nicholson Regeneration:

“We have a strong working relationship with the Nor Dan team in the UK, and they deliver a first class product which meets all our criteria, which includes a strong sustainability element. Their attention to detail is excellent.”

Crest Nicholson Regeneration has achieved many awards for its developments which have NorDan timber windows supplied as part of the building envelope.
