Norman & Underwood installed the windows and sliding doors for all the apartments and the curtain walling for the penthouses and commercial areas. Kawneer AA®603 Tilturn windows were selected to meet the stringent acoustic requirements and ensure residents would not be disturbed by noise from the busy neighbouring streets.
The build was particularly challenging as the main contractor’s tight programme required the majority of the glazing to be fitted into the inner skin of blockwork before the exterior render wall system was installed. This required deeper internal reveals, so the windows had to be carefully positioned to ensure the safety restrictors operated correctly, while still allowing them to open fully for cleaning.
As an approved installer of Kawneer glazing systems, Norman & Underwood was commissioned to install the glazing throughout this impressive residential and commercial development close to the River Orwell.
The eight-storey buildings house shops, offices, restaurants and 113 apartments, including luxury penthouse apartments with full height curtain wall glazing, large roof top sliding doors and terraced gardens providing panoramic views.
