Project Type – Mixed Use
Location – London
Main Contractor – Barnes Webster & Sons
As part of a mixed use scheme Harlow Glass installed coloured laminate glass panels to the buildings main feature elevation. The original design intent was developed by Harlow Glass using BIM software. This approach enabled full review of junctions and potential clashes. It also allowed full review of the colour combination with the project team. Bespoke fixings were designed and structurally analysed ahead of installation. Panels were fabricated from drawings to help achieve the project programme dates.
Around the rest of the project a combination of frameless glass balustrades were installed. To projecting balconies a stainless steel offset base shoe supports frameless balustrades with cap rails. Inset balconies are set into centre fixed base shoes set either side of structural columns. These balconies required bespoke steelwork to be installed below the base shoe. This ensured the balustrade functioned within its test data limits and avoided the need for further bespoke analysis. Juliette balustrades were installed to apartment french doors using a frame mounted minimal fixing bar to provide a seamless finish.
To the podium levels a third raised balustrade system was installed. These include a podium foot to lift the balustrade base shoe above the insulation and podium finish layer. This allows easy access to the glass panels for future maintenance or replacement.
