A Few of our Favourite Residential Projects
Our collection of residential projects makes up some of our most interesting buildings within our portfolio. Below is a closer look at a few of our favourites, whether they were especially rewarding to work on, provided us with a new opportunity or simply because they look great!

Tanners Hill


Tanners Hill is a residential development located in the prime South East London location of Deptford. The former industrial site that had previously been unused for almost 15 years was acquired and transformed into 58 modern apartments. CGL Facades were appointed to manufacture and install the PPC Aluminium cladding around the balconies on the building. CGL’s vertical Traypanel system was used in a striking colour combination of beige grey, khaki grey and brown grey.

Enderby Wharf


Located in a rapidly improving area of East London, Enderby Wharf is a large residential development that comprises of six blocks that will provide 770 apartments of various sizes, each with a balcony or terrace. The development is situated on the River Thames, with 200 metres of riverfront offering uninterrupted views towards Canary Wharf and the City.

This represents CGL’s largest project to date, with over 20,000m2 of secret fix PPC Aluminium Rainscreen, 3000m2 of our wallplank system used in the soffit areas and over a mile of our clip on coping between the six blocks on the project.

This project has provided an interesting challenge for Merson Group, and we are delighted to be a part of the regeneration of East London.

Essex County Cricket Club


CGL Facades completed the first phase of an exciting new residential development of Essex County Cricket Club’s ground. When complete, this new £85million development in the heart of Chelmsford will boast four apartment blocks totaling 360 apartments; a new cricket ground with a pavilion, media facilities and a conference centre; 17,000 sq. ft. of restaurants and retail space and a public piazza. Each apartment block will be complemented by a stunning view; either of the River Can, the new cricket ground or Central Park.

This was the first design, supply and installation job for CGL using the Secret Fix Traypanel system, which featured castellation fitting. This interlocking profile gives consistent alignment and integrity and the specially designed interlocking tongue allowed for the secret fixing requested by the architect.

The project is set to for completion in 2018.

Corsham Street


Corsham Street is a high quality Student Accommodation building located just behind the iconic Old Street Roundabout in the fashionable Shoreditch area of East London. CGL Facades Perforated Aluminium Traypanel, post-coated in a vibrant white colour was chosen for the upper levels, while robust charcoal coloured brickwork at the base of the structure gave the building a real contrasting look.

All the student rooms have private amenities, with a cafe, teaching space and great roof gardens offering fantastic views over the city. In addition to the manufacture, we were able to complete all installation of the Traypanel by drawing from the extensive experience of our wider Merson Group business.

The Courthouse


The Courthouse is a luxury apartment development by Barratt Homes. Located in London, it is one of the most exclusive addresses in the city, with some property values reaching circa £3million.
CGL Facades worked with HLM Architects to provide our Hook on Rainscreen system in aluminium, anodised in anolok 541 to produce a dynamic contrast to the building’s existing stonework. The façade also incorporated an exclusive fin design.
