High specification AluK windows and doors in new Cardiff Bay development

High specification AluK windows and doors in new Cardiff Bay development

AluK aluminium facade systems are at the heart of a recently completed residential development on Cardiff’s Bute East Dock which combines both new build apartments and affordable homes.

Schooner Wharf is the first open market scheme to be developed by Cardiff Community Housing Association (CCHA), who were working in partnership with main contractors Morganstone. It features 32 two, three and four bedroom affordable homes, alongside a seven storey waterside apartment building with 85 one and two bedroom apartments for sale on the open market.

AluK products have been installed throughout in contemporary Anthracite grey, including fully suited 58BW and 58BD windows and doors, GT55TB commercial entrance doors and SL52 curtain walling. These all met the performance specifications laid down by the architects Austin Smith Lord and had the benefit that they could provide a coherent, fully suited look.

All AluK products on Schooner Wharf were fabricated and installed by commercial specialists Denval based in Cardiff, who also installed the windows, doors and curtain walling on AluK’s own brand new headquarters in Chepstow.
