[CASE STUDY] Alto NW06, Wembley

6,500/m2 of Optima FC in an aluminium 1050 Grade with a Polyester Powder Coating (PPC) finish has been used in the completion of Alto NW06 apartments in Wembley, London. Located in Wembley Park, Alto NW06 is one of London’s stunning new residential developments. Consisting of 1, 2, and 3-bedroom apartments, the building was designed by Architect Flanigan Lawrence and installed by OCL Facades.

 

Optima FC was chosen as the client required a secret fixing system. The 2mm gauge alloy was adopted to suit the panel requirements whilst keeping excess weight to a minimum. 3mm Aluminium was adopted to higher impact areas such as around doors and low-level cladding.
