Century Tower, a boutique residential tower rising 52 storeys and prominently situated in the heart of Sydney CBD required remedial design and works to ensure the compliance of the balcony balustrades.
The concern was the loading capacity and installation of the glass panes within the balustrade. Bellmont was asked to engineer a solution which impacted minimally on view and aesthetics, yet provided for the required design and load performance. and management along the entire length of the job.
The problem in the original design with the balustrades lies in the geometry— straight glass panels secured into to curved aluminium top rails! The glass was unable to be secured sufficiently to prevent falling.
Bellmont’s design incorporated subtle mounting plates with structural fixings and silicones. The solution is being implemented by Abbseilers United—under the watchful eye of our Project Engineers.
