Crest Nicholson HALO Cambridge Rationel windows

Rationel timber windows chosen by Crest Nicholson as part of fabric first approach

  • 12 Apr 2017

Rationel Windows has helped Crest Nicholson achieve Level 4 in the Code for Sustainable Homes at its Halo development in Cambridge. The 274 home developed designed by CHBC Architects utilises high performance Rationel timber windows as part of a Fabric First specification. 

Situated not far from Cambridge City Centre, the development comprises 3, 4 and 5 bedroom houses, as well as 1 and 2 bedroom apartments, all designed with open plan living in mind. This means large areas of glazing make a great contribution to the quality of life indoors.

Rationel’s Danish designed AuraPlus window range were specified to enhance this contemporary design – which included higher than normal internal ceilings at 2.5 metres. Panel doors, entrance doors and window doors to balconies and patios were also supplied.

The AuraPlus windows also contributed towards the Code of Sustainable Homes Level 4 achievement, by providing a U value of 0.79W/m2K. 

Simon Watt, senior technical manager for Crest Nicholson commented: “Because this was not a standard specification of window, Rationel were extremely diligent during the specification and order confirmation process – going through the specification and measurements of each window individually. This was to ensure no mistakes were made during the manufacturing and delivery process.”

“We believe that the Rationel product really was the best out there for our needs, and the team were a delight to deal with, making our job much easier.”
