Royal Arsenal Riverside features retail, commercial and new build residential units alongside recently refurbished listed buildings. It was a brownfield site and previously home to some of the UK’s largest munitions factories. Now the mix of old and new elements exist harmoniously alongside each other. Senior Architectural Systems (SAS) provided the fenestration for this project supplying the SF52 Curtain Wall system and SPW600 aluminium windows and they worked closely with  Soundcraft, who installed these. The building now compliments and pays homage to the industrial heritage of the site.

In this CPD accredited session Andrew Cooper, National Specification Manager at SAS, will detail this project with a focus on how one approaches a retrofit project, the unique challenges posed by retrofit how and these differ from new build projects. As well as, the principles of curtain walling and recycling aluminium.

SAS can provided a CPD certificate for attendees if they require one.
