This high-aesthetic solution combines smooth, clean lines with maximum visibility and durability to cope with the most demanding environmental conditions.
Designed by Harris Architects, the scheme comprises 10,000 sq ft of grade A commercial space and 40 luxury apartments across six levels, with communal external terraces on upper floors. The site’s original office property was occupied by Kone PLC and then acquired by Oakapple following the development of a new Northern Regional Office for Kone.
It occupied only a small part of the site and Oakapple identified the opportunity to add value by pursuing a comprehensive redevelopment. Following the demolition of the building, contractors Marbank Construction built the five-story complex with a basement. The new office space is now occupied by Kone PLC.
With a choice of glass-fronted designs, Neaco’s Clearview balcony range is renowned for its superior contemporary visual appeal and the free-standing structural glass option offers the ultimate minimalist style with no supporting stanchions required. Continuous glass is toughened in accordance with BS EN12600 class 1 and fixed in place by aluminium floor channels with integrated rubber seals which insulate the glass and eliminate the need for the more traditional messy mastic detail.
The glass is capped by an aluminium top rail which is warm and comfortable to the touch and available in a choice of solid or metallic colours. The system is available with a choice of durable aluminium decking profiles which provide a contact area of between 74% and 100% on the balcony surface, yet drain water quickly and efficiently. Combining these two products creates the ultimate all-in-one balcony solution, making us the one-stop shop.
