The Project

This is a mixed-use project made up of three buildings, and includes a striking 36-storey tower that will be the area’s tallest structure. The three buildings are to be designed to have individual identities yet be linked by a shared palette of materials and detailing.

The development will contain more than 300 residences (200 private and 107 affordable units), along with desirable amenities such as a spa, residents’ lounge, retail space, and a public courtyard. A restaurant will occupy the ground level, which will spill out toward the water’s edge.


The Challenge

Given the scale of the landmark site, integration with the international façade contractor was key to ensure everything would fit and be installed smoothly.


The Brooksby Response

The balustrading that we supplied to the project was fitted behind the glass façade that integrated with the building. We ensured throughout that our work was all in keeping with the façade contractor.

We ensured regular onsite surveying occurred to ensure everything fitted together, and integration with the work of other contractors was carried out.
