Bailey imitate steel beam finish at Greenwich Reach

Bailey imitate steel beam finish at Greenwich Reach

Bailey Total Building Envelope provided their I-Line Snap-On system for Greenwich Reach, a large residential development which is part of the Greenwich Millennium Village.

The building was designed to include an exposed steel I-Beam at every level of the large building as a way to break up the façade. A pressed imitation of I-Beam was originally specified for the project but was later rejected as it was not compatible with the building’s curved design.

As it proved virtually impossible to provide a truly curved I-Beam system, Salisbury Glass contacted Bailey Total Building Envelope to help find a solution. Bailey recommended the I-Line system as it is more flexible and is suitable for curved facades.

An advantage of I-Line over traditional imitation I-Beam alternatives, is that the façade effect is created by the use of a front face fixed to the building with two flanges that are ‘snapped’ onto clips fixed to the face. This allows the facia to be manufactured as a curve, and the flanges take into account any building tolerances.

Additional benefits become more apparent on-site. The pre-fabrication of the I-line system prevents alignment issues. The ‘snap-on’ fixing method makes it quick and efficient to install.

The other aesthetic benefits of the system are that the aluminium can be supplied in a range of colours and finishes either by anodising or using a power coated finish.

This type of façade system can also be used in conjunction with a cassette system to deliver an eaves solution or as part of a solution for the external building envelope.
