LDG GROUP LTD - 7M Eco-Development Chooses Lancashire Double Glazing

LDG Group Ltd, one of the North West's largest window companies, has just completed the installation of UPVC windows and doors for the prestigious 7m eco-development at The Saw Mills, an estate just a mile from Blackpool town centre and seafront.

The 35 three and four bed-roomed mews homes have been built on a former industrial saw mill site for the developer Great Places Housing Group by R P Tyson Construction Ltd, the projects leading contractor and the official opening took place in June. The homes, which were made available for shared ownership and affordable rent, reach level three in the code for sustainable homes which means the heating and lighting is very efficient and the materials are from a sustainable source. The 7m development was supported by an investment of 3.7m by the homes and communities agency (HCA).

Working closely with the main contractor, R P Tyson Construction, Lancashire Double Glazing supplied 400 Grey 70 UPVC windows and 71 doors over a 6 month period using Synseal Profile. Whilst the project deadlines were demanding, the installation ran smoothly mainly due to the existing manufacturing infrastructure and large project capabilities at the LDG fabrication centre in Preston. LDG and R P Tyson Construction have a successful trading partnership stretching back over 20 years in which time both companies have gone from strength to strength working on high profile projects across Lancashire and the North West of England.

Lee Plummer general manager at Lancashire Double Glazing commented "This is the second major project we have work on alongside R P Tyson Construction recently, and it was very satisfying to oversee such a prestigious and valuable project that ran as smoothly as it did. I think credit needs to go out to both the construction team at Tyson's and the fabricators and installers at LDG for such a good job well done"

Steven Hartley, on behalf of R P Tyson Construction said "Tyson Construction and Lancashire Double Glazing have worked on several high profile schemes together in the past and this development was an opportunity to extend and build upon that existing close relationship"

The LDG group has been established for over 30 years and has built a successful business on the back of the company's commitment to quality and our service is provided to some of the regions leading residential, leisure, retail and large construction companies.

Lancashire Double Glazing specialises in the retail market and LDG Contracts specializes in the commercial market making up the LDG Group. The group are market leaders in the design, fabrication and installation of aluminium and PVCu products including curtain walling, window systems, entrance systems, shop fronts and patent glazing. LDG now employ over 200 staff and has its own 60,000 sq ft manufacturing facility all on one site in Preston. The LDG Group was established in 1994 following the successful merger of Lancashire Double Glazing and LDG Contracts and is probably one of very few companies in the country who make, paint and manufactures aluminum products, fabricate UPVC Windows, doors and conservatories and can now supply their own sealed units.

Formed in 1949, R P Tyson Construction Ltd has over 50 years of experience serving the construction needs of the North West. Founded on a philosophy of total quality, Tyson offers a professional service, quality workmanship and value for money. Today their project base ranges from residential refurbishment and new build to bespoke commercial projects. Their continued selection as a preferred partner for local authority and housing association projects demonstrates their commitment to the delivery of a quality service on time and on budget.
