BA Systems were contracted by Globalgrange Ltd to supply and install the glass balustrade package to the roof terrace areas of the hotel, 100 Minories. Their design team engaged extensively with Buchanan Hartley Architects to finally propose their B40 Frameless Glass balustrade for this external application. The structural glass product would provide a safe and compliant balustrade solution, whilst not impeding the views over central London.
The B40 balustrade product was provided with a low-profile aluminium capping trim to the top of the 21.5mm toughened and laminated glass panels. The balustrade base channel and supporting secondary steelwork was installed as a first fix item. The glass panels, capping trim and base channel trims were installed at second fix stage.
The BA Systems design team developed a bespoke galvanised steel supporting bracket so that the ICE 1 base channel could be offset mounted from the concrete parapet wall by up to 160mm. This ensured that the detail coordinated with surrounding and integrating trades.
Their contracts team coordinated the installation of the first fix bespoke brackets with surrounding trades, such as the waterproofing and roofing contractors. This seamless coordination was achieved by ensuring that their install team appointed to the project had continuous presence throughout the install period.
