THE CHALLENGE

Chelsea Bridge Wharf is a large new-build property development due to be completed over 4 years and across 4 phases. Barretts of Aspley (BoA) have been contracted on all 4 phases to provide a complete, tailored solution for all Architectural products to be supplied and installed include Balconies, Balustrades, Handrails, Staircases and Railings all requiring the highest quality finish. In addition to the Architectural requirements, all phases of the development require Steel Roof Structures which are included within BoA's 'supply and fit' remit.

 

THE SOLUTION

BoA have successfully delivered phases 1 & 2 and are in the process of finalising the completion of phase 3. BoA are currently proceeding with the development and construction of phase 4 which will see a further 3 blocks added to the location.

BoA's co-ordination of Design, Manufacture and On-site Installation - all overseen by a dedicated Project Management team - has ensured all phases completed have been on programme and on budget.

During the initial 3 phases BoA developed a unique installation method which allowed the balcony installation to reduce the need for scaffolding. This highly skilled exercise - which has been subjected to, and passed, stringent Health and Safety procedures - has resulted in significant time gains to the programmes and substantial cost savings to Berkeley Homes.

Phases 1-3 have so far required over 3 kilometres of Stainless Steel Handrails and glass, 1,000's of square metres of Balconies and Timber Decking and 100's of tonnes of Structural Steel. All products installed have received top quality finishes throughout including a wide variety of galvanised Powder Coatings, Timber Decking, polished Stainless Steel and pre-coated Aluminium to deliver the aesthetic look and feel required of this prestigious development.

The results speak for themselves, with many people already enjoying the view from their luxury apartments. BoA continues to make massive contributions to the on-going development of Chelsea Bridge Wharf and provide Architectural and Structural Steelwork of the highest quality.
