As Soundcraft nears completion at Castlemaine Tower in Battersea, we reveal the latest update on this significant London project.
Having already successfully manufactured and installed no less than 18 floors of SF52 curtain walling and Hybrid Series 1 tilt and turn windows for the 21-storey tower, Soundcraft is now concluding work on the South London residential block.
Operations with supply chain partner Senior Architectural Systems has also incorporated Hybrid Series 1 punch hole windows, together with installations for winter gardens, which feature glass-to-glass corner joints to the curtain wall, utilising Guardian Glass 70/35 to provide high natural light transmission with energy saving and solar protection.
“This has been a substantial project for Soundcraft and we are enormously proud of our achievements,” said Site Supervisor Scott Crew. “All windows have been installed and curtain walling is complete right down to level two. Once the scaffolding is removed from site, Soundcraft can finalise work on level-one properties, with total completion proposed for early spring.”
Appointed by main contractor Durkan Ltd for client Wandsworth Council, Soundcraft’s impressive installation has been carried out by the company’s skilled teams operating from high-rise scaffolding wrapped around the London tower.
Liaison with the local community has also played an essential part in this successful progress. “With six occupied flats per floor and internal finishing required, good communications with all residents has been paramount,” said Soundcraft’s Rob O’Connell. “Combined with our continual office support and our key factory operations being ahead of the game in providing materials, we have maintained good and solid relationships for the smooth running of this site with our operatives at Castlemaine fulfilling expectations.”
