A plan for safe, sustainable windows on the Isle of Dogs

Following the installation of 1,000 REHAU windows at Kelson House, owned by One Housing, the housing association has since received letters of thanks from residents.


Sustainable windows enable energy savings on Isle of Dogs

One Housing owns and manage over 17,000 homes in London and the South East, providing homes to around 35,000 customers. Kelson House, which is located on the Isle of Dogs, is a 25-storey purpose-built block, featuring 145 two-bedroom duplex flats, and housing more than 580 residents.

Originally built in the 1960s, some of the block’s fixtures and fittings, including the windows, were in need of upgrading Its location on the edge of the River Thames also means it is regularly exposed to high winds, so external features such as its 20-year old windows needed to be upgraded with more resilient and weatherproof materials. 

As well as finding a window solution which would substantially out-perform its predecessor, One Housing was mindful of its own impact on the environment. It therefore wanted to ensure the 1,000 windows coming out of the building were not sent to landfill, and could instead be responsibly recycled back through the manufacturing process.
