We always love a challenge in the foundry and creating a fully bespoke cast iron balcony with full building cladding was no exception.
The cast iron balcony and staircase were fairly run of the mill but creating the cladding was more of a bespoke process. In total over 48 individual castings make up all of the cladding components. The added complexity of fitting in seamlessly with the structural steel work and window components meant that site fixing was made all the more difficult.
Our experienced pattern shop and site fabrication team custom designed panels, columns, posts, stair treads, landing panels and, most importantly ,cladding in house. The cast iron balcony and cladding, in total, weighed over 7 tonnes and was a uniquely challenging contract for the team. In addition to the cast iron balcony we also supplied bespoke gates and railings to match the design.
We’re going to be writing a full case study shortly so please watch this space for full details!
