Working close with the team at Coca Cola, Helioscreen and our installation agent detailed a custom freestanding solution for four large retractable roof systems to provide all weather solutions to the terrace balconies on both level 13 and level 15 of the North Sydney building.
Each balcony has two coupled systems that covers a impressive 15m width each. The systems and all posts were designed with access in mind and were delivered to site in parts allowing access via the goods lifts to bring the systems in and up to the required levels without the need for a crane.
Installed through the existing timber decks with steel posts the systems sit just off the glass façade with custom shaped posts where required to work around the existing sun louver panels.
Integrated dimmable LED lighting systems were also a added feature that enables the areas to be used after dark.
The staff and management of Coke were impressed with the final results and are now using the areas for regular functions along with break out areas during business hours which was restricted in the past due to strong afternoon sun or wet weather.
