In with the new

Wicona’s aluminium windows, doors and curtain wall solutions were specified and installed as part of an extensive redevelopment at Thrayle House in Brixton.

The large-scale project marks the latest phase of a £200 million regeneration in the area.

Originally built in the 1970s as a social housing complex, Thrayle House in Brixton recently underwent a significant redevelopment. The updated building now comprises a variety of family houses, duplex dwellings, dual aspect apartments and penthouses. Properties within the 170-home structure vary in scope, size and nature, but are unified by a consistent external aesthetic, which features Wicona’s range of aluminium windows, doors and curtain wall solutions.

Reece Barnes, commercial director at Alliance Facades, said: “It was clear the entire delivery team wanted to do something big with this regeneration. As such, we decided to use Wicona’s high-quality aluminium windows, doors and curtain wall systems to frame the building. Throughout the industry, the company’s range is seen as a premium solution, so it was a natural fit for this build. With the company’s assistance, the project has been finished to an incredibly high specification.”

Wicona supplied its Wicline 75 Window solution and Wictec 50 Stick System Curtain Wall solution, as well as a number of bespoke items.

Wicona’s suite of products allowed for an easy installation process, which helped to mitigate many of the logistical challenges. With the assistance of the Wicona team, Alliance Facades was able to work through any supply and installation challenges they faced during the completion of the Thrayle House project, and Wicona’s technical experts were on hand to assist when required.
