Metal Builder: Glassolutions

A distinctive mixed use residential project in the rapidly changing Greenwich Peninsula has made expressive use of windows and doors from WICONA, selected for their compatibility with the scheme’s design aspirations as well as their all-round performance attributes and the level of service offered by the manufacturer.

The Fulmar was constructed by Kier under a design & build contract, with DSDHA being the architectural consultant responsible for taking forward the original masterplan. 

Forming a key aspect of the design response, the WICONA systems fabricated specifically for this project include WICTEC curtain walling, concealed WICLINE side hung windows and WICSTYLE doors, as well as WICSLIDE 160 units. All offering slim sightlines, high security and a long low maintenance life.
