Construction on site at Delancey Street has made good progress over the last month with the final one off site manufactured balconies being craned in.
Installation has had to be very careful as the tooth shaped balconies have had to be craned in 'blind'. The job of banksman in this case has been significant as the crane driver has no vision of the location of each installation on the front facade. The balcony units are hung on a counterbalance arm and swung gently into line with the floor that they are on. Specialist installers lie in wait with ropes to pull the balconies in to connect to 4 thermally broken fixing plates.
Final installation of glass balustrades takes place when all the fixings have been checked.
