AluK’s customised façade systems to feature on leading developer, Berkeley Homes high-end project, West End Gate
We’re delighted to share that AluK has been specified by Berkeley Homes for the prestigious, West End Gate project. The residential development situated near the junction of Marylebone Road and the Edgware Road, offers contemporary, luxury living in one of London’s most prestigious postcodes.
AluK were engaged as consultants alongside award-winning architects, Squire and Partners, to achieve the design intent with a range of integrated aluminium façade systems including; 14,000m2 of AW86 unitised curtain wall, 750 concealed vents, 241 lift and slide SC156 sliding doors and 58 77ID swing doors.
Russell Yates, Managing Director, AluK GB Ltd comments: “Very early on, the importance of AluK playing a lead role in developing the design of the unitised façade for this flagship project was recognised. Our dedicated team have worked with partners from the design stage to ensure the exact project needs are met.’
Kevin Leahy, Senior Technical Manager, Berkeley Homes (Central London) Ltd comments: “We feel that being able to provide accurate information to our supply chain partners, enabling them to de-risk the technical and commercial elements of any package when tendering, is the correct approach. I am delighted to say that having AluK work so closely with us on the unitised façade was central to helping us achieve this on West End Gate.”
The first phase of the West End Gate complex has an expected completion date of summer 2020.
