NEWCASTLE UNIVERSITY

Refurbishment of existing university building included the replacement of the balustrade to 18 flights of stairs and returns.

The project involved the management of the removal of the existing low level balustrade, with the reinstatement of a new balustrade sized to meet current regulations, all while the building was opening and functioning as a busy university department.

Access and the management of the health and safety requirements was a challenge. The contemporary, stainless steel and glass balustrade meeting all specifications was fitted within the project deadlines with no issues.
