Kawneer Systems Help Seaforth's New Vision
30 July, 2012
Curtain walling and windows from Kawneer are featuring on the facelift of three tower blocks.
Work is drawing to a close on the re-cladding in Kawneer curtain walling of the first of three residential tower blocks in a £20 million redevelopment by housing association One Vision Housing.
Kawneer’s AA®100 dry-jointed zone-drained curtain walling with 50mm sightlines, complemented by AA®543 tilturn windows, is being installed on the last elevation of Alexander House at King’s Park in Liverpool by specialist sub-contractor Extruded Window Systems.
The tower block refurbishment plays a major part in the regeneration of the Seaforth Docks area of the maritime city and once all three are completed in 2014 more than 200 new apartments will have been created.
Main contractor Bramall Construction started work on King’s Park in 2011 and the first phase is expected to be complete by autumn 2012 with work on the remaining two towers – Montgomery House and Churchill House – due to start then.
As well as the modernisation of the three tower blocks, architects Brock Carmichael’s plans include remodelling open spaces to provide lots of secure and accessible recreational areas and the incorporation of Home Zones – areas that attempt to strike a balance between traffic and all other road users, be they pedestrians or cyclists.
