A FARLINGTON firm has been chosen to provide windows for an ambitious building project in Gosport.

Window Warehouse will be installing energy-efficient windows in the second phase of the Rowner Renewal Project.

In total, up to 700 homes will built to replace 500 houses that were originally built by the Ministry of Defence in the 1960s.

Window Warehouse celebrated 25 years in business last year and will install top quality windows finished in grey to complement the contemporary look of the refurbished houses.

The firm’s managing director Malcolm Cake said: ‘Regeneration in this area of Gosport is an important project and as a local company we wanted to install the best products for residents.’

The Rowner Renewal Project is split into three phases.

Work began in 2009 and it is estimated that it will be complete by 2017, following further public consultation.

As well as the houses, the project also includes new shops and green open community spaces to make the development look and feel like a village.
