BA Systems help with the development of housing for the elderly in Lewisham

BA Systems help with the development of housing for the elderly in Lewisham

The development was designed by PRP Architecture and main contracted by Rydon Construction. The main element of the project was the Extra Care U-shaped building that was constructed around a central courtyard garden. Each flat has its own access door off the central walkways.

The design requirements for the balustrade presented a number of initial challenges:

In some areas, the base fixing detail on the balustrade needed to finish flush with the finished floor level and with the outside edge of the brick fascia. This presented a complexity as the balustrade base fixing would need to be elevated off the concrete slab. The handrails on the walkways also needed to be warm-to-touch.

BA Systems' final balustrade solution for the project included our B40 Frameless Glass balustrade to the concrete balconies and terraces. They worked closely with surrounding trades, such as the cladding sub-contractors, to provide an aluminium trim product that interfaced with the balcony fascias. On the balconies, they used a small low-profile aluminium capping trim to the top of the glass. For the walkway balustrade BA Systems provided a 42mm diameter offset satin stainless steel handrail.

For the internal stair cores, they provided our B20 Post and Glass Infill balustrade. This was complemented with their B10 Wall-Mounted stainless steel handrail. On one stair, this balustrade option was installed to a curved stair flight where a curved handrail was used with faceted glass infill panels.
