Since launching their offsite window and door solution last year, Nationwide Windows Ltd, leading fenestration partner to the housing sector, reports that producing factory-fitted windows and doors is fast becoming part of their core product line. What is key to the success of their solution is the collaborative approach they have taken to delivery.
Adrian Pavey, Commercial Director at Nationwide comments: “New Build housing has been at the core of Nationwide since the very start, over 30 years ago, and through the years we’ve been at the forefront of many advancements.
While Offsite Construction isn’t a new concept world-wide, we saw that for the UK it provided a very feasible opportunity to help solve the housing provision crisis.
“Working closely with a small number of partners, each with their own knowledge of supply into the housing sector, we developed a new concept for windows and doors using offsite construction technologies, materials and service. We launched the concept at two exhibitions last year: The Build Show and The Offsite Construction Show. The idea was to use these exhibitions as a platform to not just showcase our solution to the right audience, but also talk to peers within the sector to learn more about this increasingly popular housebuilding technique.
“Since then we have been working with our key partners to develop our offering. We’re now successfully delivering into three developments, with many more coming on stream.
“While the housing industry hasn’t fully embraced Offsite Construction, the balance is certainly tipping towards MMC. We’re delighted to be in a position to add expertise and experience to the supply chain as the market continues to emerge.”
