Tower Hamlets – London

RF Fixing was proud to work with Oskomera, namely Project Managers Fred De Weerd and Robert Van Bovan, on the Telford Homes flagship, 25 Storey Avant Garde residential development in Bethnal Green – Tower Hamlets, commissioned to fit the following:

• Over 7500m2 of unitised elements
• 2000 m2 of bolted winter garden glass
• 104 bolted balcony’s
• All associated copings, flashings and privacy screens

The distinctive Avant Garde features, in particular, the bolted balconies, demanded a highly skilled team proficient in leading-edge works. The RF Fixing team of 40+ worked diligently and to high safety standards, completing monthly rescue drills to ensure the safety of all involved and successful project completion, within budget and on time.

Installation of the 104 bolted balconies and consequent bolted winter garden glass, measuring 3.2 by 2.0m, proved challenging due to the particularly uncompromising weather at the time. Unfazed, RF Fixing faced the challenge head-on and found a solution to ensuring the safety of their team and success of the project, using their bespoke lifting sheer wall scaffold.

Following the successful completion of the project, RF Fixing was further commissioned to install commercial curtain walling and a structurally glazed link roof between Block A and Block B of the Avant-Garde development.

The result is a truly stunning building with a façade of timeless elegance, firmly placing Tower Hamlets on London’s ‘up and coming’ residential map.
