Project Overview

We were delighted to be selected by clients, Skillcrown, to be the preferred glazing partner on this major development in the heart of Croydon's historic old town. Cairo new Road is a contemporary collection of 113 studios and 1,2 & 3 bedroom apartments.

Delivered to a high specification, the 14 storey building also has a commercial unit on the ground floor and all the homes benefit from open plan living areas and balconies to selected apartments, where residents can enjoy panoramic views of London.

The site, which previously housed a 1960's warehouse, has been designed to provide affordable homes for families, young professionals and those looking to get onto the property ladder. Construction started in 2018 and was completed in November 2020.

Collaborative Design

In terms of initially finding the right solution at tender stage, we worked closely with the Skillcrown team to come up with a solution that met the stringent requirements for acoustic values, low u-value, Lifetime Homes and PAS24 Security. Our pre-construction team were able to work through many of the design challenges to maintain the architectural concept of the brise soleil with a value engineered solution.

Project Comment

“The whole project has been a real joy to work on. Skillcrown embraced our approach to collaborative working and we felt part of the team from the design stage right through to completion.”​​​​​​​ Michael Green, Managing Director, RED Systems

By working closely with the team from RED, the design process was a breath of fresh air. Operationally, the project has been really smooth thanks to RED's pro-active approach and full time site management to oversee every aspect of delivery.
