Trent Street Townhouses




Island Bay, Wellington

The client


Trent Street townhouses are a modern development well-suited for those wanting a low-maintenance, sophisticated, coastal lifestyle. They were developed by GibbonsCo, designed by Novak + Middleton architects, and constructed by Redican Allwood.


Executive townhouses in the capital city

A range of window and door units were required across a total of 17 executive townhouses. These needed to be suitable for extra high wind zones and exposure to nature's elements. As Wellington is famous for its strong gusts that blow from the Cook Straight, it's important that developments along the coast factor these high wind speeds into each stage of the building process.

For this multi-residential development, construction quality and design excellence were deciding factors in every key decision. The team weren't planning your average townhouses - with a higher ceiling height, oak floors, and granite bench tops, these offered high-spec, luxury living! The window and door units therefore needed to be of excellent quality to blend seamlessly into the design.

Blending product durability with elegance

UNO supplied 121 window and door units to help complete the 17 executive townhouses in the Trent Street Development. These products all meet the Extra High (2130 Pa) Wind pressure New Zealand Standard 4211, therefore were suitable for installation in this exposed area.

The windows and doors installed also incorporated special, quality features to ensure luxury was continued throughout the townhouses. These included adding large sliding doors to create a seamless indoor-outdoor flow and SoundStop glass to reduce sound intrusion.

UNO enjoyed working with GibbonsCo and Redican Allwood on this project. We appreciate the feedback received from Redican Allwood's Project Manager, Andy McGowan. Check out the video to hear what he has to say about the project!
