Experienced South East installer Newview might be best known for its extensive work on Heathrow’s Quieter Homes scheme. But that’s not the limit of the company’s commercial expertise.
Right across the capital, you’ll find exceptional Newview installation work on a huge variety of commercial and residential developments – including in three twenty-storey tower blocks. London City Airport, which serves over 4 million passengers every year, called on Newview as Principal Contractor to install nearly 750 windows in 240 flats across the three buildings, plus a further 360 flats in various other blocks and roads around the airport.
Acoustic insulation was a vital consideration on this project – the flats aren’t just in very close proximity to the airport itself, but the area is also subject to ongoing and often-noisy construction work. For that reason, Newview fitted Profile 22’s acoustically-exceptional Optima windows, including laminated 10.8 mm Optiphon glass from Pilkington.
Optima’s five-chambered sash section and six-chambered outer frame offer excellent structural strength and thermal and acoustic insulation – while Optiphon’s PVB interlayer makes it the perfect choice for use in noisy city environments. What’s more, to maximise comfort for building residents, Newview also installed hundreds of Siegenia Mechanical through-wall ventilation units.
Acoustic insulation is a Newview speciality, and it was great to be working with London City Airport on this project – comments Managing Director Michele Wiestcher. – Our installers did an amazing job working at height and contending with tight deadlines. We’re delighted that we’ve now been asked to continue working for the Airport throughout 2019, with refurbishments to a minimum of 400 more properties scheduled for later this year.
