Reynaers Aluminium has supplied a range of architectural aluminium systems for the Paynes & Borthwick prestigious riverside apartment, office and retail development in Greenwich.
Paynes & Borthwick comprises five blocks and a tower. The project, fronting onto the River Thames, includes 257 one, two and three bedroomed apartments, as well as 14,000 sq ft of commercial office and retail space.
A series of aluminium systems were supplied by Reynaers including CW 50 curtain walling, which the company says provides unlimited creative and installation flexibility, while also allowing the maximum amount of light into a building.
Also installed are CS 77 and CS 38-SL windows which are both thermally improved. CS 77 has been installed on the high tower and features fibreglass reinforced polyamide strips ensuring high thermal insulation levels are maintained. With its slender exterior contours, the CS 38-SL is described as offering an ideal solution for new build and refurbishment projects involving the replacement of original steel framed windows.
Within the new build, CP 130 sliding doors were installed in the tower to enable balcony access from the apartments. In addition, Reynaers Vision 50 system was used to provide ground floor entrance doors for the retail units.
Paul Duffy, Sales Director for Reynaers, said: The requirements for this development, with its mix of new build and sensitive refurbishment of listed buildings, were varied to say the least. Working closely with the architects and fabricators, we were able to provide a whole range of systems that would meet all needs in terms of efficient and effective operation, while working within the parameters of a listed building project both from an aesthetic and performance standpoint."
