Timber Wharf

A residential development, Timber Wharf is located on the corner of the Roman-built Kingsland Road and 19th-century Regents Canal and features commercial space as well as a canal-side restaurant.

The residential area is grouped around a quiet cobbled courtyard offering a sheltered play area, while the waterfront apartments make up the courtyard’s northern edge and are set back from the canal, overlooking a very attractive, quaint and safe community garden.

We worked very closely with Kier Group PLC and Ryno Ltd to deliver this very important remediation project.

The timber boards on the walkways and balconies along the facade and the waterfront were replaced with Ryno’s BalcaSmart® Aluminium and TerraSmart® Aluminium systems, which are ideal for remediation, new-build, and refurbishment projects.

The refurbishment project was completed this year, delivering peace of mind to residents and owners alike, especially after the Grenfell Tower fire and changes to fire safety regulations.

Installed with great care and attention to detail, seamlessly meeting stairwells and other structural elements, the BalcaSmart and TerraSmart Aluminium systems complement the overall aesthetics of the building. Being lightweight, long-lasting, and most importantly able to meet the load requirements of its walkways, which also form part of the fire escape routes.

Both BalcaSmart and TerraSmart Aluminium systems carry IGNO mark of assurance for non-combustibility and reassure specifiers by way of a 30-year warranty and a 60-year design life.

I have no hesitation in highly recommending ALU Installations. They provided us with a real proactive and responsible team of operatives. Who, not only helped us out on our project but went over and above their work brief. Our program had fallen behind schedule due to previous poor contractor installations, ALU managed to complete more work in less time whilst providing installation of the highest standards I have seen. ALU's project supervisor Kevin, won our monthly site safety league award during their works with us. ALU Installations are a top quality company who provide outstanding service.

Alu-Installations and Ali-Deck carried out a full Design, Supply and Installation service which included Balcony Screens, Terraces, Roof-Tops and Internal walkways. T The work was carried out over 3 occupied blocks. All existing timber needed to be stripped and replaced. The work was carried out safely and efficiently. The workmanship was excellent. The overall finish was a job to be proud off. Highly recommended.
