Bryn Gaer Place, Newport
The Curve, a newly opened two-storey community hub in the Bryn Gaer Place housing development in Newport, includes a faceted curtain wall completed in the SL52 system from ALUK as its centrepiece.
AluK’s technical team worked with commercial fabrication partners Vellacine to design the curtain walling for the project, which also required an external canopy to be attached to the system.
The design was achieved using AluK’s SL52 curtain walling system with a variable gasket solution and a single mullion to ensure that the glazing complemented the external façade design.
AluK’s SL52 flexible, capped curtain walling system met the aesthetic, thermal, wind and water performance requirements set down by the north Wales based architects Ainsley Gommon.
AluK GT55TB commercial doors were also installed throughout the 39 new homes in the development.
Bryn Gaer Place was developed by Derwen Cymru (part of the Pobl Group) who provide housing and services specifically for the over 55s, with partial funding from the Welsh government’s social housing grant.
