BA Systems has provided its B30 Frame & Glass Infill panel balustrade system for The Gatefold Building – A 132 rental home Hayes development with office space, a new café and community amenities.
The building is the first in the wider masterplan. The project has been delivered by Willmott Dixon’s private-rented sector business, Be:here, on behalf of Development Securities and Cathedral Group. Be:here will manage the rental units under its own brand. The scheme required an iconic balustrade solution to represent the cultural heritage of the area and reflect the quality rental apartments Be:here seek to deliver.
Working closely with Frank Reynolds Architects and the Willmott Dixon design team, the balustrade fixing details were developed, simplified and agreed at an early stage to ensure that flow would not be hindered during the installation phase. BA Systems provided the solution with their B30 Frame & Glass Infill panel balustrade system.
With just under 4,500m of aluminium extrusion for the B30 system needed, BA Systems identified the requirement for a new semi-automatic cutting saw. This investment meant that a consistent finished product could be achieved without compromising the speed of the installation.
