BA Systems were appointed by RG Carter to provide balustrade solutions for the striking King’s Lynn Innovation Centre. At the early stage, the structure of the building presented initial challenges for the balustrade installation.
Following significant pre-contract design development, BA Systems were commissioned to provide their B20 system, with stainless steel posts and wire infills for the internal voids and stair cores. However, in order to maintain the necessary 0.74 kN/m loading in the walkway voids, the BA Systems technical team had to design a steel fixing plate.
This plate was then welded onto the steel beam below the composite floor deck at an early stage so that once the wall finish had been applied, the 2-point balustrade post fixing could be installed.
R G Carter chose the B40 Frameless Glass balustrade with a stainless steel slotted handrail for the internal and external balconies to the main void area.
At execution stage, the site surveyor and project manager worked closely with the R G Carter site team to proactively ensure that our balustrade works were synchronised with the surrounding trades. This was especially essential for the internal voids, where the early installation of the steel plates had a small window of installation time.
