Prince of Wales Drive, Battersea, London, SW11, new shape design for residential apartment balconies
Our team of experts at Alloy Fabweld, designed, manufactured and supported the install of 190 balconies within the Prince of Wales Drive development.
Our designers worked closely with the Berkeley Group and crafted unique and different shapes utilising squares and angler sides for the balconies. This provided the apartments with light reflecting from the daylight into each apartment, for the benefit of the residents and to compliment the overall design style of the building.
All 190 balconies were fitted with the highest quality fire-rated aluminium decking, along with matching fire-rated aluminium soffits and cladding, giving residents greater peace of mind and offers every apartment a spacious, bright and private balcony.
The PPC balustrades provide a high-quality, modern smooth bronze metallic powder coating. The finish of the balconies bronze tones complement the overall building providing a unique urban modern effect.
Once the balconies were manufactured and tested against the high specifications and quality standards, our logistics team ensured the smooth delivery of the products, fully assembled for installation, to the site.
Providing a quick installation, some balconies were stored on the roof of one of the blocks and installed from the roof of the building using a spider crane due to space restrictions at ground floor level. The remaining balconies were delivered straight to site and were lifted from the transport and installed directly, reducing time and effort on site.
The unique approach for the Prince of Wales Drive had various benefits for the contactors. From reducing time on site, the balconies were delivered fully assembled, cutting down on installation time.
The balconies were produced within our own facilities that is the UK's first carbon-neutral off-grid large-scale engineering facility, helping to reduce our carbon footprint along with ensuring a high level of quality control during the manufacturing and assembling process. The offsite manufacturing of the balconies also helped to reduce costs while increasing the quality of the balconies.
Furthermore, this method of installation reduces the duration of scaffolding on-site, resulting in a direct cost saving to the contractor.
