Bond Bryan Partnership (Architect)
B20 Post and Infill; B10 Wall-Mounted Handrail
Main contractor Willmott Dixon selected BA Systems to complete the balustrade sub-contract on this project at Bedford Academy.
BA Systems was chosen for the company's ability to understand and interpret the regulatory requirements and the ability to deliver on time and on budget.
A rigorous programme of value engineering was required to help meet the budget. BA Systems was able to draw on their expertise and knowledge of all aspects of handrail design to offer a value engineered alternative to the specified product, without compromising on quality, or safety and at the same time preserving the architect's design requirements.
B20 with stainless steel round handrail and glass infill panels was used across the seven staircases, central atriums and link bridges.
The client and customer are extremely happy with the overall result, especially the feature staircase.
