Northgate Heights is a new housing development consisting of 295 apartments, ideally situated in the north of Johannesburg. Catering for young professionals that require a comfortable lifestyle, the apartments range from single bedroom to family-sized 3 bedroom apartments.For the developers of Northgate Heights, Key Projects (Pty) Ltd and Adamson Nielsen Construction, energy efficiency is an important value. For this reason they decided to specifiy Teva uPVC windows, manufactured using REHAU 60mm profiles, mainly because of their energy-saving benefits. This allowed the architects to design apartments with bigger window areas that comply with the energy saving requirements in the building regulations.
Furthermore, the developers knew that the uPVC windows also insulate against sound, which is very important when living in a high density apartment block.The added advantages of welded (thus dust and draught-proof) windows plus increased security made REHAU uPVC windows the obvious choice.
The results are beautiful, airy and serene apartments, flooded with light.
Working closely with Ian Aitken of Key Projects, Teva Windows supplied and fitted over 4000 uPVC windows and doors for Northgate Heights, to all 295 apartments over a period of 2 years, each one of them on time. “We have been working with Teva Windows for the last 4 years. They have installed high quality windows and doors for us and will be involved in our projects going forward, ” says Ian Aitken.
Clearly the residents of Northgate Heights stand to benefit a lot from the foresight of the developers, Teva Window’s expertise and the advantages offered by REHAU uPVC windows and doors.For more visit REHAU.
