Sapphire has installed 145 Glide-On™ balconies and provided glazed balustrades for 59 inset balconies at Suttons Wharf, an award winning development in East London.
The project was a rapid build as the contractor managed the construction program very well. The customer for Suttons Wharf wanted solid ends to some of the balconies in addition to a thin slab build up.
For this project, Sapphire manufactured the balconies in advance and kept them in storage so the shipments could go in fast when the install happened. The deliveries to site were optimised using Sapphire’s trailers which have the capacity to transport four pre-assembled balcony units stacked two high.
To match the narrow floor slab depth, Sapphire used a closed Cassette®, many of which also had a custom made ’end box’ detail with aluminium cladding to the exterior, and decking on the inside.
