GR were asked to design and install a new glass balustrading solution for this Midlands based School.

Table Of Contents

The brief/scope of the scheme was to either alter the existing balustrade height which was a standard 1100mm high - 10mm toughened glass clamped system with handrails to achieve an enhanced safety specification for the students of the School of between 1800 -2000mm high, or to replace the balustrading throughout.

Alteration/modification was not an option ref the existing balustrade system,  so the GR design team carried out the full design element – design drawings, calculations etc in order to meet the end Clients requirements and to ensure a fully compliant system in line with the original design brief.

Upon completion GR handed over to the client a 25.5mm toughened laminated frameless glass balustrading system with enhanced sunken stainless steel bottom channels, with supporting mid/handrails to the associated staircases and an overall improved safety height of 2000mm.

GR operated in the capacity of Main Contractor for the duration of the works and as such managed project delivery and all aspects of site safety/welfare.
