Yuanda UK is pleased to announce their appointment to the team of Mount Anvil to carry out all external facade work to Blocks A, B and C of the 261 City Road development, just north of the City; Mount Anvil is developing the site in conjunction with Affinity Sutton, the leading national housing provider.
The site will form a key part of the City Road Basin, and the Tower which is central to the development will be the tallest tower in Islington. Designed by SOM Architects, the development comprises 307 apartments, leisure/spa and retail spaces.
The facades comprise unitized curtain walling (externally ventilated flat and curved twin-pane glazing to the Tower), opening windows, sliding doors, stone rain screens, Linit glass profiles and balustrading systems. Facade systems will be designed and engineered at our Basel design office, assembled at our purpose-built manufacturing plant in Shenyang, and transported by sea container to the UK, and then by road to the London site.
Start on-site for glazing works is currently planned for the end of 2013 for Block A, with the following Blocks phased to commence shortly after this.
