BOA Balcony Success

Posted: 6th January 2017

2016 saw Barretts of Aspley have its busiest year to date. Within the last seven months of the year we designed, fabricated, assembled and installed circa 560 balconies (20 balconies per week). Around 70% of the balconies produced within this period weren’t standard balconies either. Many had various elements to them such as drip trays, fascia’s, soffits and ornate balustrades. Some balustrades were extremely ornate such as the balconies we produced for Lend Lease at Elephant and Castle (Pictured). These balconies had balustrades constructed from 5mm mild steel laser cut plate with staggered fixing points so the pattern remained consistent throughout.

To produce this amount of balconies alone was a massive achievement but to sustain this continual flow of work alongside numerous other metalwork and structural steelwork showed the resilience and strength of our organisations production facility.
