Roofing, Cladding & Facades Find the perfect exterior for your home Where canopies are concerned… they’ve got your needs covered! Greenwich turns greener with Aliva UK’s insulated render Cedral fibre cement cladding is the ideal choice for those requiring a low-maintenance facade solution for their property. With the visual appeal of natural timber, it can transform new-builds and renovations into stunning properties. As suppliers of canopies to the trade and consumers alike, Birchwood Trading know that sizes, colours, glazing options and budgets can be vastly different from customer to customer. Their range of canopies comes in off the shelf sizes, and for customers who need an exact size, they offer a bespoke made-to-measure canopy. Easy to install, their canopies come as a complete kit of parts with installation instructions. An ambitious regeneration scheme at Greenwich Peninsula in London is showing off its green credentials with a sophisticated insulated render façade from Aliva UK. Frames are made from powder coated aluminium and can be finished to any RAL colour. All glazing options are covered from tough, yet lightweight, multiwall and solid polycarbonate to glass. Architects Jestico + Whiles asked Aliva, the UK leader in façades and interior finishes for a cost effective yet aesthetically pleasing finish to an eight storey residential block of 240 apartments. Forty per cent of them are affordable housing. Choosing which style of Cedral is dependent on the look you wish to achieve. Available in two applications, Cedral Lap and Cedral Click both offer the same benefits while allowing for an individual aesthetic. For a traditional appearance Cedral Lap is installed in a clapboard effect on to new and existing properties, offering a New England design. Both Cedral Click and Cedral Lap are available in 21 solid colours, with Cedral Lap available in an additional two woodstain finishes.

The development by Wates Construction is one of the largest schemes in Europe, bringing thousands of new jobs, state-of-the- art new homes and a vibrant community to the area on the banks of the Thames near the O2 Arena. www.alivauk.com www.birchwoodtrading.co.uk Twinfix GW Polycarbo
