The commercial department at frameXpress has shown consistent growth recently with the reliability of the products and flexibility of the team placed as key advantages by customers. Most recently the company was contracted to supply white windows and doors with astragal bars in the Optima S system, for a major project in Birmingham.
Providing the best in security and thermal efficiency with all windows and doors achieving the highest industry standards, the leading trade manufacturer also supplied black Composite Doors for all 12 dormer bungalows at the Handsworth location in Birmingham.
The bungalows are built to “HAPPI” standards (Housing for the Ageing Population Panel for Innovation), which provide innovative features for the elderly. The entire project is being delivered through BMHT’s construction framework which aims to deliver new homes across Birmingham using local labour and local suppliers.
As an initiative it provides work experience for apprentices and trainees through Birmingham’s Social Charter, with the completed scheme having been praised by Birmingham Municipal Housing Trust (BMHT), which previously stated that the site was “unable to be developed”.
Birmingham City Council won ‘Social Housing Provider of the Year’ last year at the Insider Residential Property Awards 2016, being recognised as the largest provider of affordable homes per annum across the Midlands.
As a regular supplier for BMHT the frameXpress range provides excellent quality ensuring that the highest standards are achieved in terms of security and style for residents with Secured By Design accreditation offered on all products.
BMHT celebrated the completion of its 2,000 home milestone in March last year with a culmination of 1,125 homes built for rent, as well as almost 900 built for sale since the council launched the BMHT programme. Last year BMHT also won the Public Sector Award at the Urban Design Awards for one of its redevelopment programmes.
Sarah Price, Commercial Sales Manager, frameXpress Ltd comments, “Providing the right solutions for commercial developments continues to be a priority for the frameXpress team. We always work hard to ensure that through diverse options, which provide the highest security standards, that we can give customers complete peace of mind regarding each and every project.
In Birmingham, the council has a number of new rented properties currently under construction on various sites, and there are plans to build further new homes for rent in the region that will help to close the city’s housing gap. As a company we are proud to be part of that success story.”
