Center Parcs Coup for Carl F Groupco

A prestigious contract awarded to West Port Windows and Doors Ltd - manufacturers of high performance, bespoke timber windows and doors, has resulted in one of Carl F Groupco’s largest orders for fittings.

Carl F Groupco is preferred window hardware supplier for a West Port contract supplying Center Parcs’ new 362 acre woodland Woburn Forest site in Bedfordshire: the facility features 625 lodges, a 75 bedroom hotel and six Spa Suites for overnight spa stays.

West Port was awarded the contract to supply 4,000 timber windows and 2,000 timber doors, including sliding patio doors with electronic locks to maximise natural light and provide outdoor access. Fittings provided by Carl F Groupco for West Port’s “System X” window included Peder Nielsen Side Swing gearing, the MACO RAILespagnolette and MK 1 shootbolt locking systems and Hoppe Tokyo espag handles.
As part of Carl F Groupco’s service that supported West Port’s delivery on time and to specification, the hardware supplier provided a solution for fire escape windows by specifying the Trojan Mega Egress hinge with 90º opening: this allowed West Port to supply windows on time and to specification.

Commenting, Sean Parnaby, West Port’s Managing Director said:
“The contract is an excellent example of Carl F Groupco’s ‘one stop’ service, partnership approach to hardware supply and ability to provide high volume orders to meet exacting lead times. The company’s contribution included working with West Port over a 13 month period developing specifications for all window systems fitted on site. The resulting data sheets, which are designed to ensure consistency and accuracy of orders, are used by West Port’s factory and purchasing staff, as well as Carl F Groupco’s sales teams.”
In line with West Port’s stringent criteria to control impact on the environment, all Carl F Groupco hardware is supplied using a Kanban system: this provides West Port with a customised, returnable packaging design to reduce carbon footprint and comply with the company’s environmental policy.
