Designed by architects Langley Hall and built by Galliford Try, the quarter-hectare brownfield site was previously occupied by a warehouse and has been redeveloped into a five-storey, 100 residential unit block together with 14,000 square feet of office space.
The large windows and contemporary façade take advantage of all the design values inherent in Metal Technology’s System 5-20 Hi + Tilt Turn windows and 5-20D Hi+ doors. System 17 Curtain Walling has been deployed on the façade with System 9/10 entrance doors completing the installation.
The 5-20 Hi+ Tilt Turn window and 5-20D Hi+ door suites are part of Metal Technology’s new range which offers a high performance thermally efficient system. A variety of structural mullions, vents and outer frames provides flexible solutions to meet the thermal, structural and aesthetic requirements of any building. All systems are security tested, with the 5-20D doors having standard, panic and electric release options approved.
Finishes vary internally and externally, adding to the design possibilities, while the intrinsic qualities of aluminium – infinite recyclability, durability, strength and lightness mean it is one of the most sustainable building materials in use today, reflecting Linden Homes’ stated commitment to producing highly efficient dwellings.
