Situated in the centre of Brixton, Lambeth, and standing fourteen storeys high is Hambrook House; a brand new mixed-use development comprising of 94 residential units, plus ground and roof level community spaces. Part of an extensive redevelopment of Lambeth Town Hall, the building enjoys views over nearby St Matthews Garden to the east, enhanced further by a series of laminated glass balconies provided by industry specialist TuffX.
The project was completed in November 2018 after 285 m2 of 17.5mm heat soaked glass had been installed, alongside a number of smaller 12mm panels. TuffX Managing Director Graham Price is pleased to have been selected as the supplier for the commercial development: “SW2 is fast becoming one of the most eclectic and sought after postcodes. This site reflects the modernity new homemakers will be looking for from their purchase and our input has matched that perfectly. While transparent balconies enable a flow of light and space, the polished edges offer a clean, contemporary appearance.
“As a highly progressive and customer orientated company we take safety incredibly seriously, especially where balconies are concerned. The glass has dubbed corners – removing any sharp edges – and the screen-printed etch design feature provides a reminder to young children that the glass is there. Additionally, as it’s slightly opaque the etched band gives touch of privacy from roadside onlookers.
“TuffX is a regular supplier to the customer involved with the build, and we were proud to have been chosen for our unrivalled lead-times, high quality and on-hand technical advice. In fulfilling this order so promptly, it is particularly satisfying to have protected their future relationship with the end client.”
TuffX is a leader within the glass market, and brings more than twenty years’ experience in toughened safety glass to the industry.
