GLOBAL UPVC DELIVERS THE PERFECT REMEDY AT HISTORIC HOSPITAL SITE

December 22, 2015

More than 700 high quality windows and doors were supplied and installed by Global UPVC at a prestigious development on the historic Caerphilly Miners’ Hospital site.

The Beeches Village – an award winning scheme – was delivered by an innovative partnership of housing association United Welsh, Caerphilly County Borough Council, housing developer Lovell, the Welsh Health Service and the Caerphilly Miners Community Group. Completed in January 2015, it has created 82 homes for sale and for rent on the site.  All homes have Legend casement windows and French doors from long-standing local Synseal fabricator Global UPVC, whose Managing Director Jon Dowse credits much of the company’s ongoing success in the commercial market to the Legend system:

“We use only Legend and have done for over ten years,” says Jon. “So many of our clients keep coming back and inviting us to bid for more work that we can hardly keep up with the tenders. To me, that is the best possible commendation I could hope for from any system. It’s a good looking window that performs well but also from our point of view, it is easy to manufacture. Our work is mainly in new-build but we do a bit of everything and Legend suits us whatever we are doing.”

Legend is one of three 70mm PVC-U window systems created by Synseal, along with the chamfered Shield and sculptured SynerJy with its innovative j-form curves. Legend was first introduced to help installers gain a greater presence in the commercial sector, but has since also become a favourite in the retrofit market with a choice of chamfered or ovolo profiles.

Brian Walker, Synseal’s Fabrication & Development Manager, comments: “I visited this site on a number of occasions during the build process and there has been a consistent high quality of frame manufacture and installation in all the homes throughout this landmark new housing project.”

Built in 1923, The Miners’ Hospital was paid for by the miners of the Rhymney Valley after they each put aside 6d out of their weekly wage of 12s 6d to raise the £30,000 needed.

The Miners’ Hospital closed in 2011 with services transferred to the new Ysbyty Ystrad Fawr hospital in Ystrad Mynach.  The redevelopment of the site has been shaped in close consultation with the local community.  A key element of the scheme was the preservation of the original Miners’ Hospital building which has been retained and leased to the Caerphilly Miners Community Group for use as a community centre.  Other community legacy benefits have included five apprenticeships created by the development.  The Beeches Village was recently named Development of the Year in the Welsh Housing Awards; earlier in 2015 it also won the Residential category in the 2015 RICS (Royal Institution for Chartered Surveyors) Awards for Wales.
