Demanding Regulation standards and the sheer scale of a residential housing project like East London's New Garden Quarter, have seen TECHNAL and installer Ravenworth work together to deliver the £4.2m scope of work for Telford Homes. This includes windows, patio and entrance doors as well as curtain walling.
New Garden Quarter is part of a masterplan development and takes in some of the Olympic Legacy land in Stratford. The development, which sits next to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, features one, two and three-bedroom apartments, villas and sky villas set around a landscaped two-acre garden square.
The brick built eight-storey blocks feature uniform frontages broken down into a varied set of neighbouring buildings. The facade systems and materials generally have been selected to give the space a calm and civic character, whilst acting as a backdrop to the dramatic square's landscape. The whole development has been designed to a high specification to ensure the best use of natural light. Facing the main square, the facades are punctuated by inset and Juliette balconies featuring TECHNAL Dualframe 75 Si Tilt-before-Turn windows and Confort 125 patio doors. The top two flooes are setback duplex penthouses with private roof terraces.
The TECHNAL aluminium facade systems selected meet a host of regulatory requirements. These include the Building Control Body and National Housebuilding Council (NHBC), Lifetime Homes and London Housing Design Guide compliance, as well as Secured by Design (SBD) for the main entrance doors.
