Installation of the product began in late 2012. This huge scale project was no mean feat and there were a few on-site factors that ABS needed to consider to avoid interruption to the overall project.
The building structure- built using Bubbledeck. As is common with a project of this scale, there were a few discrepancies with the level of the upstand wall, due to the alignment of precast panels, which the design had to allow for.
Time Scale- The project needed to be completed by early 2013 so time was a rare resource, leaving minimal allowance for error.
Weather conditions- an important factor in projects of this scale and when using glass. ABS had to allow for high winds and rain when considering employee safety and for protection of the glass. The glass was covered in black plastic during construction, to protect it from weather conditions and building spills.
Logistics & handling- When working with glass, extra care needed to be taken with regards to storage, transportation, handling and installation.
Installation planning and execution meant that the balustrade was in place quickly in accordance with the build program and minimised the need for temporary edge protection thereby allowing cost savings for the builder.
ABS managed to get the project done on time, to the client's specifications and with little disruption or breakages.
