Glass Juliet Balconies, Glasgow, Case Study
Auchlochan Retirement Village, Lesmahagow, Glasgow.
Contractor: Castleoak Group
Clear glass Juliette balconies take care of the view.
Castleoak, a leading care sector development and construction company, specified clear glass Juliette balconiesfrom Balcony Systems for its latest care project to make the most of magnificent lake
side views in South Lanarkshire.
Stylish Juliette balconies with aluminium handrails finished in Royal Chrome met the architect's precise balustrading specification for French Doors in 20 remodelled extra care apartments at The Retreat, Auchlochan Retirement Village near Lesmahagow, south of Glasgow.
It is the first time Balcony Systems has worked with Castleoak, whose project in Scotland was its thirteenth for MHA, one of the UK's leading not-for-profit care providers.
Completed in August 2011, the year-long project also involved the refurbishment of the previous atrium area into a communal lounge and four premium apartments on the second floor.
Castleoak Project Surveyor Sean Coyle said the Balcony Systems' product was chosen as it matched the architect's design and allowed light into the property, whilst retaining unrestricted views across the lake and landscaped grounds.
He commented: "The Juliette balcony system worked on our building extremely well. Auchlochan was the first project where we used the Balcony Systems product and after Balcony provided a quotation during the estimating process, it was a natural progression to follow this through to an order."
Sean added: "Working with Balcony Systems was straightforward. All of the technical questions were quickly resolved and telephone calls returned immediately."
