Senior Architectural Systems hits the mark at Royal Arsenal

  • 13 Apr 2023

Senior Architectural Systems, the UK’s largest privately owned aluminium fenestration solutions manufacturer, has supplied the aluminium fenestration package for a new phase of the Royal Arsenal riverside development in London which has seen the creation of a new 10 storey residential building containing 112 apartments.

This exciting riverside development in South East London is breathing new life into a former brownfield site that was once home to some of the largest munition factories in the UK. Appropriately named Royal Arsenal Riverside, the site comprises a mix of new build residential, retail, and commercial elements alongside the sympathetic refurbishment of several listed buildings.


The new building’s construction works in harmony with one of the Grade II listed buildings, complementing the heritage of the site. This involved the demolition of an old energy centre building and the careful renovation of two existing warehouse buildings to provide space for commercial use.

The mix of old and new, and residential and commercial, has been harmonised with the use of Senior’s slim line SF52 curtain wall system and low maintenance SPW600 aluminium windows. The curtain walling screens also incorporate feature curved heads along the spine of the building to pay homage to the scheme’s industrial heritage.

The high-profile project was designed by architects Corstorphine & Wright for Berkeley Homes and is one of the latest London based contacts to be undertaken by Senior in collaboration with supply chain partner Soundcraft.
