Context

At 120,000 sq ft, John Lewis Oxford is the flagship store of the redeveloped Westgate Oxford retail centre. BA Systems was chosen to design, manufacture and install a balustrade system for the voids and restaurant stairs.

Challenge

The project presented a number of challenges:

  • Maintenance of brand consistency with other recent John Lewis developments.
  • On the stairs, the balustrade base channel had to be elevated from the concrete slab by 175mm and cantilevered away by 122mm.
  • Complex logistical integration with the wider Westgate development.

Integration with other trades

The B40 frameless glass balustrade was provided for the atrium voids. The ICE2 base channel was fixed at an early, first-fix stage. Following the progression of the surrounding trades, the glass and top capping handrail were installed. Base channel capping trims were fitted to co-ordinate with the finished floor level.

Bespoke design of secondary steelwork

A B40 balustrade was installed on the restaurant stair. On the landing areas, to accommodate the changes in level from the concrete slab to the balustrade channel, BA Systems designed a bespoke steel bracket to support the balustrade base channel.

Wall handrails

The restaurant balustrade was complemented with a B10 wall handrail. The satin stainless steel handrail features polyester powder-coated handrail brackets to match the Scandi-inspired rooftop restaurant design.
