BA Systems has provided its B20 stainless steel post and glass infill balustrade system for the Oasis Academy Arena in Croydon. Oasis Academy Arena is a new Croydon school built for children between 11 – 16 years. The Academy, which was built by Willmott Dixon, specialises in sports and science and is part of Croydon’s Olympic legacy.
With the balustrade forming an integral part of the building in the central voids and stair cores, the school required an attractive yet durable finished product to compliment the high quality building.
BA Systems were appointed by Willmott Dixon to provide a balustrade solution to the stair cores and voids. The B20 stainless steel post and glass infill balustrade system was chosen for all areas of the building. In order to meet the necessary 1.5 kN/m balustrade loading in the void area, the BA Systems design team value engineered the architects fixing solution.
Jamie Hawkins, Construction Manager at Willmott Dixon, said: "BA Systems installation was paramount to get Building Control sign off and the install duration on site only totalled a number of days. This proved with a dedicated supply chain partner anything can be achieved and BA Systems excelled in this role".
