Parker Joinery supply doorsets for London apartment block development
Parker Joinery are supplying more than 1,000 Premdor adjustable doorsets to our client Vision Homes for the development of two large apartment blocks in Leven Wharf, London E14. The development is expected to be one of London’s most exciting waterside regeneration projects.
The 0.5 hectare waterfront site is part of the important Poplar Riverside development zone, whose development has been boosted by its close proximity to the city’s 2012 Olympic City Park.
Combining excellent standards of design and construction, this new development has planning permission for a residentially-led, mixed-use scheme, comprising 160 one, two and three bedroom apartments plus commercial floorspace.

A nine-storey Y shaped block overlooks a wide bend in the river to the north and the park to the south, with 300 square metres of commercial floorspace installed on the ground floor.
The development is located under one kilometre north of the docklands and two kilometres east of the City. Leven Wharf is at the heart of a superbly positioned residential area.
Business investment in the area is also making news with a £1billion regeneration planned for the Royal Albert Dock to create a hub for Asian businesses and a unique trading link between Europe and Asia.

The Premdor range includes a number of innovative internal and apartment entrance doorsets available for both new build housing developments and refurbishment projects.
The doorset range has been painstakingly developed with demanding performance requirements in mind, allowing for simple, rapid installation on-site.
Adjustable doorsets for internal use dramatically simplify the installation process, overcoming the difficulty of encountering variation within a given wall thickness when on-site. The door is supplied pre-hung with CE Marked latch and hinges and is also supplied with matching pre-mitred architrave and all fixing components and brackets, resulting in a fully-equipped doorset kit. A fire door option is also available.
