Neaco supplied a bespoke specification combining a railed Juliet balcony design with its contemporary glass balustrade to meet the aesthetic requirements of a prestigious development of luxury apartments in Sevenoaks, Kent.
Designed by BHD Architects, the project formed part of an extensive redevelopment of a site at the junction with London Road and Pembroke Road in Sevenoaks and included the construction of a new apartment complex comprising 22 properties with parking at basement level. The scheme was carefully designed to fit into the established pattern of development of the surrounding area, in terms of scale and appearance. The building incorporates a range of traditional elements, including Neaco’s railed balcony option, to reflect the character of the town centre whilst incorporating contemporary features promoting sustainable techniques such as solar panels, a green roof and living wall and rainwater harvesting. In addition to its railed balconies Neaco supplied balustrade with glass infill panels for top floor terraces.
Neaco’s National Sales Manager, Peter Melia, said: “Our glass balustrade and balcony solutions have attracted an exceptional level of demand in the residential market across a broad range of developments and The Pembroke is yet another example, but it’s also a reminder that we are able to offer a more traditional aesthetic with our railed balcony options also being utilised. We offer standard railed balcony designs but The Pembroke required a bespoke railed balcony solution which demonstrates the design versatility of our technical team.”
Neaco’s range of handrails, balustrade and balconies offers a host of design options encompassing a variety of stanchions, top rails and various infills including toughened glass, perforated panels, tension wire, vertical rails and horizontal rails. Design solutions can be supplied in aluminium powder coated in a wide range of finishes, satin polished stainless or a combination of both materials. The company’s diverse product range also includes structural glass, adaptive bathing facilities and metal grating systems for flooring, screening and shading applications. All products are backed by a class-leading Lifetime Guarantee.
