A new terrace of family housing in built in Brockley, London features flat top metal railings and gates supplied by Alpha Rail.
Williams Mews comprises seven family houses, including 2 semi-detached properties which have been built by Cobalt Construction of Croydon on plot of land formerly occupied by a garage.
To miminise the impact on adjacent dwellings, major ground re-modelling was required to create entrances to the properties at semi-basement level. Subsequently stairwells from the landscaped front gardens and parking areas had to be installed and appropriate metal railings and handrail fitted along the stairwells and on top of a concrete retaining wall.
Appointed by architects and designers, Alexander Sedgley based in Greenwich, Alpha Rail has manufactured and supplied 23 linear metres of flat top metal railings and a single leaf gate for the front elevation of the terraced row. The flat top railings were base plate mounted to the top of the concrete retaining walls and all metalwork was galvanized and powder coated signal grey RAL 7037.
The metal railings have provided an attractive finish to this new development whilst ensuring there is an effective barrier in place to deter residents or visitors from jumping or falling off the concrete retainer wall on the upper level, down to the basement level.
Commenting, Stephen Alexander, Director of Alexander Sedgley said, “Alpha Rail provided helpful support and details of previous projects for design precedents which made the procurement process efficient. They provided clear and precise technical data and drawings for approval and their project management and installation service was very well delivered.”
