ABL Aluminium Decking Solves a Unique Development Dilemma!
Property developer Rod Palfrey (Blue and Co Ltd) was undertaking the construction of 2 adjoining properties at Heron Lodge in Worcester. The grounds contained the former hunting lodge which was nearing completion of its restorations, but the 2 new properties were located at the edge of site with a steeply sloping rear garden.
The solution was for an upside down layout with the bedrooms on the ground floor and living rooms upstairs.
A neat solution to access the high level rear garden was to incorporate a “bridge” for each property from the kitchen to the garden.
ABL Aluminium Decking provided a number of positive features;
• strength to carry the load with a minimum of structural steel
• an easy to clean and safe walking surface coupled with a modern look
• plus, with holes in the surface, light could pass through the deck so as not to cover the ground floor windows in darkness.
Olympic Park & London Stadium Win With ABL Aluminium Decking
UK specialist fabricators – Darke Steel – have been working with ABL Architectural Aluminium to design, build and install aluminium steps for the gangways at West Ham United’s ground, The London Stadium (the former 2012 Olympic athletics venue).
Aluminium steps were considered ideal as they are tough enough for heavy use on match days but are also lightweight to assist with the moving in and out of position as the stadium is converted for football matches and other sports fixtures.
Cutting and installing the steps to the gangways was straightforward and the appearance of the anodised aluminium steps is atheistically pleasing and will provide a durable product for many years service.
The reason for the selecting ABL’s Designer decking was a combination of lightweight, value engineering and decking surface finish. The designer anti-slip surface pattern is ideally suited for large crowds and provides a modern and safe surface on the steps between the rows of seats ensuring safe access and exit for spectators.
The client was very satisfied with the steps which are hard wearing and will not rust. They therefore achieved the finish, durability, lightweight benefit and good value that the client was seeking.
Darke Group would be happy to ask ABL Architectural Aluminium to supply decking for future projects and both companies hope to work on other exciting installations in the future.
