A number of Reynaers’ sustainable aluminium systems, including windows and doors, have been specified to control heat and reduce living costs at the new Greenwich Square development.

Based on the old site of Greenwich District Hospital, Greenwich Square is a new, multi-million pound regeneration scheme which will see the creation of over 600 new homes.

As London’s first major carbon neutral development, Greenwich Square has been designed with sustainability in mind. Make Architects’ blueprint makes use of glass and aluminium structures and curved facades, providing a contrast with the woodland landscape surrounding the site.

The design reflects traditional street patterns, with a number of amenities surrounding a public square.

The build has now started: the project’s fabricator, Fleetwood Architectural Aluminium, and its primary contractor, Mace, are utilising sustainable materials and techniques, including the incorporation of on-site energy technology.

The development is scheduled for completion next year.

Sustainable aluminium systems

Several Reynaers aluminium systems – including CS 86-HI, CS 77, CW 50 and Vision 50 – have been specified to control heat and air permeability for the south east London project.

The company’s CS 86-HI and CS 77 include flush door and window systems, which have been installed throughout the development. Curtain wall facacde and roof system, CW 50, has formed part of the buildings in the public square.

Meanwhile, Vision 50 – a non-insulated flush door system, which has been designed for shop front constructions – has been used in the retail elements of Greenwich Square.
