Con-Tech is currently providing Precast balconies, utilising the ‘ThinShell’ principle, for a large prestigious scheme in East London. This is in preparation for opening in 2012.
Large balcony units, weighing over 5 tonnes have been re-designed to weigh around 2 tonnes in weight, in response to limited Crane capabilities on site.
This is far from the first time Con-Tech has implemented the ‘ThinShell’ principle to ease the process of Construction. Another similar, earlier prestigious scheme involves the supply of Cladding material to Ponds Forge International Swimming Pool in Sheffield; host of the World Student Games in 1991.
