New Build apartments & mews houses use REHAU window systems


REHAU window systemsBerkeley Homes has selected REHAU window, patio door and curtain walling systems for its landmark Kidbrooke development in south east London, which when complete will be one of the largest housing-led regeneration projects in Europe.

The first phase of the development of nearly 450 apartments and mews houses at City Point overlooking Sutcliffe Park is now complete where tilt and turn windows, sliding patio doors and REHAU Polytec 50S composite curtain walling have been fabricated and installed.

All of the frames are coloured grey on the exterior to enhance the contemporary styling of the development and are white on the interior to suit the décor requirements of residents.

A particular feature of City Point is that many of the apartments have glazed balconies which are accessed via sliding patio doors fabricated using REHAU’ S717 patio system. These sliding doors have been fitted within frames in the REHAU Polytec 50S composite curtain walling system to benefit from the slim 50mm sight lines.

REHAU has a long and successful relationship with Berkeley Homes based largely on the high specification and quality of its window and door systems and the level of support available from its commercial sales team. At Kidbrooke REHAU’s team carried out design support and completed interface drawings for use by the project architects.

Developed in partnership between Berkeley Homes, Royal Borough of Greenwich and the Mayor of London, Kidbrooke was originally a 109 hectare brownfield site. Over the next 15-20 years, a £1bn regeneration project will deliver a sustainable new community with nearly 4,000 new homes and 170,000 sq ft of commercial and retail space, including sports, healthcare, educational and community facilities, as well as parks and green open spaces.
