Smart Completes Major London Landmark

Situated at the heart of London’s Canary Wharf, the two towers that make up the Landmark development comprise 804 prestige apartments and penthouses on 45 and 30 floors respectively, together with two lower-level buildings that are situated around a central courtyard.

Developed by CPL and designed by architects Squire and Partners, the apartments and penthouses are finished to the highest quality specification, offering residents stunning views across London and Canary Wharf.

The ground floor areas to all four blocks were completed in 2013 with Smart Architectural Aluminium’s MC Curtain Walling system installed by Avdon Bristol Limited, one of the company’s specialist partners. With in excess of 1,600 square metres of curtain walling installed and including Smart Wall commercial entrance doors, the system perfectly completes the development which contains café areas as well as a Tesco convenience store.

Completed for the Landmark project in a polyester powder coated grey finish, the slim profiles of the Smart MC Wall curtain walling system allow maximum light into both single and multi-storey buildings, with a special feature transom cap with concealed mullions for uninterrupted ‘glass to glass’ joints. The versatile, polyamide thermal break system, may also incorporate a top hung frameless vent and can accommodates any of the company’s windows and doors.

Commenting on the completed project, Trevor Evans from Avdon said: “Landmark is a stunning development right in the heart of London and we were delighted to have developed and installed a Smart system to complete the project, with MC Wall providing the perfect solution for the programme. Proven in projects throughout the UK, the system is fast to install and extremely versatile and allowed us to deliver an elegant and robust solution to complete the ground floors of the four Landmark blocks”.
