KAWNEER SYSTEMS ARE HELPING TO IMPROVE ACTON'S COMMUNITY
 
Glazing systems from Kawneer are being used on the redevelopment of Acton Town Hall. 

Elements of the entire range of architectural aluminium systems from leading supplier Kawneer are currently being installed on a £17million historic town hall redevelopment.


The manufacturer's AA®100 zone-drained curtain walling, AA®605 low/medium-duty swing doors and series 190 heavy-duty commercial entrance doors, along with GT70 slimline renovation windows and 451PT framing will feature on the Acton Town Hall Community project.

The civic redevelopment by AFLS+P architects for Ealing Council will provide the community on completion in spring 2014 with a variety of multi-functional spaces and opportunities for all of Acton's diverse ethnic population.

While retaining the Town Hall's heritage, the project includes demolition of Acton's former baths building which will be replaced by a new three-storey building housing a 25m swimming pool and a trainer pool, along with modern fitness and leisure facilities including a larger, glass-fronted gym.

Part of the Town Hall, which dates back to the 1800s and is within the London borough's Conservation Area, will also be kept and refurbished to create a new library and council offices, and its iconic frontage and the baths chimney, listed Grade II, will also be restored. 

The Kawneer systems are being installed for main contractor Willmott Dixon by approved specialist sub-contractor JPJ Installations who will fix the AA®100 curtain walling in the existing east elevation in frame-within-a-frame elements that can easily be removed for equipment access.

Kawneer's AA®100 curtain walling with narrow 50mm sightlines also features on the new-build element along with the AA®605 low/medium-duty swing doors and series 190 heavy-duty commercial entrance doors on the main entrance.

In addition, Kawneer's GT70 slimline renovation windows, which replicate the appearance of steel windows, will be installed on the existing main entrance, with 451PT units as door framing on the north elevation.
