Balustrade Production For £175M London Garden Bridge Project

Balustrade Production For £175M London Garden Bridge Project
29/09/2015

The Garden Bridge is a £175 million pound project to build a 366m-long ‘floating garden’ over the River Thames, planned to begin in January 2016. Set to become a world-class landmark, showcasing the UK’s expertise in design, engineering and landscaping, Brooks Forgings are proud to announce their involvement in the project.

The Balustrade - Design & Manufacture

Designers for the project have generated an ambitious design for the balustrade that will span a total of approximately 1000 meters in various locations throughout the project. Conventional balustrade is typically produced from round or square material, however, the material chosen for this project has a ‘flower’ shaped profile. Selected to be aesthetically pleasing and in keeping with the theme of the project, it creates several challenges in the manufacturing process.

The balustrade consists of 2 separate designs produced using the same material, requiring tooling for 2 different head formations and 2 different base formations.

Brooks Forgings in-house production and design team analysed the design and spent several weeks designing tooling to ensure the best quality component could be produced using the most effective manufacturing process.

It was crucial that the profile of the material blended cleanly into the head and fluted base of the balustrade components with no mismatch or unclean edges.
