neaco have provided another bespoke design solution with a range of contemporary-style Juliet balconies for the refurbishment of 40 Stafford & Rural Homes apartments off Sidney Avenue in Penkside, Staffordshire.
The company’s design team worked with CTD Architects to create a new Juliet balcony outside of the standard specification, incorporating stanchions with offset glass panels. neaco also provided balustrades in six stairwells across three buildings as part of a complex project which had to be completed within a tight build schedule with residents continuing to live in the apartments throughout the programme.
Steve Tipper of CTD Architects said: “We wanted a contemporary aesthetic and that’s why we chose neaco. Their balcony systems provide design versatility with modular components which combine for a made-to-measure solution. In terms of installation, it was a technically challenging project and neaco dealt with any issues quickly and effectively. We are proposing to use neaco again for the next refurbishment project involving another seven complexes near to the Sidney Avenue site.”
The Sidney Avenue refurbishment is the first phase of Stafford & Rural Homes’ new strategic approach regarding environmental improvements which will span more than two years. The care and affordable housing provider maintains a high level of annual investment in order to modernise and ensure its stock of homes become as efficient as possible.
Available with a class-leading Lifetime Guarantee, neaco’s Spectrum range of handrails, balustrade, balconies and structural glass offers a huge choice of modular components. Systems can be specified in stainless steel or aluminium powder coated in a variety of solid colours, metallic colours and intricate wood-effect finishes.
