B40 and B50 balustrade systems
Deptford Foundry is a 316-home development on the site of a former 19th century metal foundry in London.
This Anthology development is spread across 8 separate apartment buildings and one 22-storey tower known as the Cobalt Building. In addition to the residential units, the scheme will also provide 2,860 square metres of artist studios and workspace areas.
Initially designed by Rolfe Judd Architects, it was more recently taken forward by Associated Architects. The development has taken character from its industrial heritage as a metal foundry established in 1831. Because of this prestigious background, a very high-quality finish was required to the external balconies and terraces on each apartment.
Initial design challenges included:
Following extensive pre-contract design development and co-ordination with the modular bolt-on balcony supplier, BA Systems was contracted to design, supply and install balustrade and privacy screen solutions for the inset balconies, terraces and podiums.
The B50 balustrade system was specified for the vertical bar balustrade requirements with 50x12mm vertical flat bars.
The B40 frameless glass balustrade system was provided for the roof gardens and terraces, with 21.5mm toughened and laminated glass.
A variety of bespoke fixing details were designed to facilitate a quicker install.
