A new facade of curtain walling by Kawneer has helped a refurbished office block realise a 29% improvement in carbon reduction over an equivalent building.

Kawneer’s AA100 curtain walling, in SSG (structurally silicone glazed) and capped versions, plus AA601 fixed light casement windows and series 190 heavy-duty commercial entrance doors feature on Yare House on Thorpe Road, one of the principal routes into Norwich city centre.

The £3 million refurbishment executed by main contractor Morgan Sindall for client Highlight Consultancy has transformed the 1970s four-storey brick and glass building both aesthetically and in terms of its performance. Previously solely occupied by Anglian Water, this refurbishment will now provide sustainable flexible office space in the heart of Norwich for up to 10 businesses.
