Glass balustrade project completed on Pitt Street.
Bright Balustrading was pleased to have been asked to design, supply and fabricate a fully custom stainless steel and glass balustrade at 56 Pitt St, Sydney CBD. These works were contracted to Bright by Goodwin Concepts and their client Dexus with a total property portfolio of over 33 billion as of Dec 2019 who own, manage and create high quality workplaces across the office, industrial, retail and healthcare sectors.
Prominently located with three street frontages – Pitt, Bridge and Gresham Streets – the property is built on land that originally housed the Sydney Stock and Wool Exchange and still proudly features the 1889 Lady of Commerce statue.
With 56 Pitt Street boasting Opera House and harbour views and a vibrant ground floor café, it was important the balustrade was of the highest design and finish in order to meet the high standard of building, heritage and history associated with the property.
Bright Balustrading site measured and fabricated over 14 pieces of precisely laser 10mm stainless steel plate to then individually weld together to form the sophisticated and elegant posts with handrail glazed with structural glass infills.
This was especially critical due to the surface being raked and already finished with tiles requiring Bright to very precisely fabricate and install the posts and glass infills to match the exact degree of the slope of the ramp.
Given the works are on the busy CBD streets on multiple frontages, all works needed to be conducted after-hours between the hours of 9pm till 6am or so in multiple stages and nights.
