Challenge

Goldsmiths College in London is ranked as one of the world's top 100 universities for the arts and humanities (QS World University Rankings 2012), and has been recognised as one of the UK's top creative universities by students (Which? University 2012).

Elefant Gratings's panels were situated on the college's roof terrace underneath 'The Squiggle', a sculpture designed by renowned architect Will Alsop. They were rolled to a radius and welded together prior to galvanising, in order to achieve a variety of S-shaped infill panels.

Solution

Specification

  • Galvanised gratings to BS EN 1461:1999.
  • Mesh size: 100x40mm, 40mm vertical bar centres.
  • Bars: 25x3mm horizontal and vertical Type N.
  • Edge: 25x5mm on four sides, including side fixing holes.

Outcome

The bespoke, sinuous balustrade panels and associated steelwork fit in beautifully with the College's ethos of creativity and excellent design.
