Sapphire has manufactured and installed over 150 Glide-On™ balconies for the project at the 30-storey residential tower of Woodberry Down.
To install the final 30 balconies, Sapphire created an innovative roof hoist to enable installation after the crane had gone. Once finished, the hoist could be dismantled and taken down in the internal goods lift.
The balconies were manufactured offsite in Sapphire’s production facility, and then stored allowing time for connections to be completed. The pre-assembled balconies complete with glass balustrade and fully finished Cassette® were then transported to site on flat bed lorry trailers.
