Situated alongside the Electric Boulevard, the large building designed by Foster + Partners combines multiple uses: 164-room art’otel, Battersea Roof Gardens, Koa apartments, shops, and restaurants.
Whilst technically it’s one building, practically it is several buildings together with different uses. The balconies were designed from levels five to thirteen, some levels along the whole building. However, given the mixed usage, and subtle changes to the internal design based on the individual owner requirements, it meant that each level had different loads with very little repetition.
Additionally, there were requirements for fire safety at REI 120 standard as well as additional thermal breaks for balconies.
CFS designed all balcony connectors using the AVI Thermokorb system. It’s a very flexible system and we were able to provide a custom design with 120mm insulation instead of the standard 80mm. CFS assembles them on-site at Medmenham, meaning that we can be flexible and minimise any delays. Having extensive experience working on large projects, it was easy for us to coordinate the design and deliveries to the site.
