Alcoa announced the opening of two new offices in the United Kingdom and Singapore of its Alcoa Building and Construction Systems’ Kawneer business.

Kawneer is the leading manufacturer of architectural aluminum products and systems for the commercial construction industry.

The offices will serve the Kawneer Global Special Projects division (KGSP), which specializes in landmark unitized curtain wall projects, which feature factory fabrication, panel assembly and glazing, with completed units hung onto the structures to form the building enclosure. KGSP is the single source solution for all phases of a project, including design, engineering and project management.

This is the first Kawneer facility in Singapore, and will support selling activities in Southeast Asia, Australia and India.

The new Birmingham office is Kawneer’s third location in the U.K.; it also has facilities in Runcorn and London. The Birmingham office will support KGSP marketing activity in the U.K. and Ireland.

Based in Harrisonburg, Virginia, and Toronto, Canada, KGSP’s extensive experience on major international projects spans more than 200 projects and 36 countries. The group begins work early in the design stage, collaborating with owners, architects and general contractors to design and develop custom unitized systems that can help achieve the most ambitious of visions. Unitized curtain walls offer the advantages of speed, a controlled environment and lower field installation costs, particularly when compared to stick systems, which typically involve jobsite installation and glazing. Highlights of the KGSP portfolio include The Trump International Hotel and Tower at Waikiki Beachwalk, Atlantis III in Nassau, Bahamas, YVR Terminal in Vancouver, B.C., and many more.
