- Replacement of balustrades
- 12 weeks - Phased
Working with a large out-of-town shopping centre, they required a trusted contractor to carry out a full refurbishment of their Balustrades.
With a mixture of retail outlets and restaurants they required a contractor to work out of hours so that these thriving businesses could remain open and have ‘Business as normal’
Upgrade existing glazed hand railing systems by developing an initial design and installing a 1.6m high ‘frame less’ system involving the introduction of a new structural support system incorporating floor finishes and any specific access requirements.
SCOPE OF WORK
Our main requirements for this project were;
A complete replacement of the glazed perimeter guarding to specific areas of the shopping centres upper level and the upper mezzanine level.
Fixing of glazing, securing of glazing, handrails and interfaces with finishes, in accordance with specified BS and Eurocode loading requirements.
HOW WE HELPED
Working out of trading hours our team were on site between 8pm and 7am. This was to ensure that our clients were able to proceed as ‘business as normal’
Providing full project management we were able to ensure that the project ran to time.
Works were designed and programmed by fully cooperating with the mall and its retailer clients, this required us to set phasing deadlines to avoid busy seasonal periods to minimise trading impact. All access
requirements had to be robustly designed to ensure they were adequate for the needs of the operation but also with the consideration of reduced impact within the retailers trading space below.
Completing this essential work within tricky working conditions we were pleased to have completed it with minimal disruption to our clients.
Working to a detailed programme we handed the project over on time.
A striking but subtle new glazed balustrade system offering an enhanced level of safety for the mall and its customers.
