Glide-On™ Cassette® balconies from Sapphire were chosen for the Lighterman project in the Greenwich Peninsula, a prominent feature on the skyline with 23 storeys and some 224 apartments.
Sapphire were able to meet the build specification by providing advanced and innovative design solutions in the form of 'W' shaped balconies, which were engineered to follow the building line to tight tolerances.
Glide-On™ Cassette® balconies are lightweight and approximately half the weight of steel alternatives, which can reduce the number of brackets required to connect back to main structure, potentially saving one casting per day when compared to traditional methods.
All Sapphire balconies are made offsite, avoiding the hassle of coordinating multiple trades and site storage of materials, as balconies are stored offsite preassembled and delivered when required. Bespoke fascia details were incorporated into the balcony design to enable a blend between balcony and façade.
