Historically, balconies have been produced as a set of components then delivered for on-site assembly. This has led to a host of problems including timescales for assembly and possible loss or damage on-site or during delivery.
Utilising the latest technologies, the manufacturing process now allows for the complete construction and assembly of balcony units in a controlled factory environment. This technology has many advantages including consistent high specification products allowing for quality control throughout the entire production process including material control which ensures all materials are fully traceable and certified. Specific machinery allows for accurate and repetitive workmanship, which means that the balconies are produced standardised to the bespoke specification for that development. Highly skilled coded welders and fitters ensure all products fulfil the specifications.
One of the major positive factors about this method of construction is the speed and efficiency in which the balconies can be installed. We are currently installing two storey balcony sets at our Stratford Riverside development. This makes the installation of balconies over 29 storeys a far quicker process and therefore more cost-effective.
