VELFAC composite glazing will be installed at X1 The Landmark, a major residential development in Salford, Greater Manchester, to be built by Forrest. Designed by DK-Architects, the building will comprise 191 luxury apartments and townhouses, together with communal facilities, in a stepped development rising from five to 14 storeys.
VELFAC will supply over 3,000m2 of composite aluminium / timber glazing, including windows, patio and sliding doors, and CWCT-approved spandrel panels. The specification includes SBD-accredited glazed units for ground and upper floors, and solar control glass. VELFAC will also provide a comprehensive design service to ensure manufacture and installation is on time and on budget.
The £31.2m development is due for completion in early 2019, and – says DK Architects - will ‘signify this part of Salford as a developing area of civic and visual importance, while providing an additional focal point of urban activity’.
