Our Learning Places strategy aims to provide those involved in specification, design and build for education buildings with a solution that can consider all factors that dictate window installation, including student and teacher welfare, net zero and cost and energy efficiency.

However, we are also firmly focused on the additional benefits we can provide for future generations. When grown, harvested, processed and replenished correctly, timber is the only truly renewable building material. Carbon negative in growth, the C02 is then safely trapped in the material for the lifetime of that product.

NorDan’s aluminium-clad timber windows and doors contain 50% less embodied carbon than PVCU and four times less carbon than aluminium (according to BSRIA - the Inventory of Carbon and Energy); they also offer a 60-year life span with minimal maintenance. PVCu (fossil fuel based) can only meet half of that.
