Challenge

A contemporary twist to traditional architecture

The 73 Great Peter Street project has transformed the site of former government offices into a development of 22 luxury modern apartments, 2 penthouses and 1 commercial unit. Set over seven floors, this project offers magnificent views, new and old, taking in the likes of Big Ben, the London Eye, The Shard and Canary Wharf, to name but a few.

Solution

At design stage BA Systems worked extensively with McAleer & Rushe to make the vision for the building come to life and provide a practical solution that met the required regulations. At the same time the team had to deliver a solution within budget without compromising the quality of the finished article.

The BA Systems solution provided a modern look to the upper penthouses with the B40 Frameless Glass System. The B20 Post & Infill system was installed to the central stairs and the basement. These combinations of glass and stainless steel created a stunning contemporary and crisp look to a building designed to reflect the historic surroundings.

Outcome

As part of the value engineering process, BA Systems provided their B20 Post & Infill system as an alternative to the specified structural glass on the stairs. This solution provided a saving without compromising on quality and at the same time preserving the architect's design requirements.
