ALUK façade solutions were used in Schooner Wharf, a development of apartments and affordable homes on Cardiff’s Bute East Dock.
Schooner Wharf is the first open market scheme to be developed by Cardiff Community Housing Association (CCHA), which was 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 installed throughout the scheme in contemporary Anthracite grey, include fully suited 58BW windows and 58BD doors, GT55TB commercial entrance doors and SL52 curtain walling.
The manufacturer says the increasing desirability of aluminium in this type of development is shown by the prominence of ‘high performance aluminium windows and balcony doors and PAS24 compliant and SBD accredited entrance doors’ in the sales literature, alongside attractions such as high specification kitchens and bathrooms.
All AluK products on Schooner Wharf were fabricated and installed by Denval based in Cardiff, which is part of AluK’s network of fabrication partners.
