Regeneration of a brownfield site, previously used for storage, Aurora in Stratford is close to the Olympic village, offering a mix of homes and commercial properties. Whilst having a unique character the buildings, designed by architects Stock Woolstencroft, are cleverly linked by the distinctive materials, colours and window treatments.
Reynaers Aluminium systems open up the development with their stylish Eco windows, CS68 doors and Vision 50 doors all installed by fabricators Baris Facades & Linings for main contractor Galliford Try. Reynaers worked closely with the fabricator on the specification and delivery of the systems throughout the development in order to achieve the desired overall finish conceived by the architect.
The ground floor frontage of the buildings comprise in the main commercial property utilising Reynaers Vision 50 doors, specifically designed for ground floor treatment and, in particular, high usage. They dovetail seamlessly with the CW50 curtain walling, installed throughout the 12 storey apartment block. Openers within the curtain walling are all from the Eco 50 window system that combines energy efficiency with aesthetic design. The same system is used for tilt & turn openers throughout the development. It meets the latest thermal insulation requirements with values exceeding Building Regulations.
A number of the apartments feature balconies and these are accessed via Reynaers Concept System 68 (CS68) doors, a three-chamber, thermally insulated aluminium system that gives the ideal combination of high insulation levels and optimum security.
