Featured Project

Project:

Castle Wharf, Chester Road

Superb development with inset balconies and beautiful roof terraces.

This prestige development by the riverside in Manchester used the MyDek Vista board on our standard box rail and cleat support system. Renaker and their subcontractor were a pleasure to work with and were keen to ensure that they delivered a first class product and installation to complement the quality of the development.

Specific Challenges solved

The penthouse terraces on the project had an unusual design in the base construction which meant that the ends of the boards by the balustrade had to be supported by matching aluminium angle rather than a standard joist and pedestal detail. Due this point and to the large construction depth as well as the risk of wind uplift the client opted to select a special coloured aluminium deck board rather than porcelain. We also worked with them to provide a unique way of fixing the boards to allow them to be removed to access abseil points beneath the deck.

INSTALLATION (KEY POINTS)

  • Vista Decking Board
  • BoxRail and Cleat Support Structure
  • Special Portland Stone Effect Colour for roof terraces
  • Special fixing clip design to facilitate simple board removal over abseil anchor points
