111 DXN

04 Apr 2022 by Belcanto

With previous projects benefiting from Early Contractor Involvement (ECI), the opportunity to add value here was again helpful. We provided advice in fabrication and planning for the balcony balustrades and internal stair screening.111 DXN

Modulation was a valuable approach for fast, cost-effective construction. Bathroom pods were on the plans. The focus then turned to modular balconies, if these could be developed efficiently without compromising the style and quality of the end result. It was no small job. 92 balconies required 600 linear metres of balustrade. We got to work planning to perfection. Balconies were assembled offsite and balustrades and decking fitted here.111 DXNInstallation speed could not compromise health and safety either. With the close proximity of neighbouring buildings and the infamous Wellington wind to contend with everything needed to be planned perfectly in fitting the balconies. There were to be no unexpected calls to 111.

The best way to achieve this result was to use a 200T mobile crane and, along with a well-managed road closure in busy downtown Wellington, quickly lift and fit the balconies to the building. With 10 balconies able to be installed each day the project provided a perfect demonstration for this innovative new approach to apartment construction.

New Zealand
We’ve been fabricating balustrades for decades now and supply a huge range of projects throughout New Zealand. With innovation and customised fabrication we win tenders for challenging commercial projects, large-scale civil infrastructure and bespoke architectural enhancements.About Company It has been a journey of measured paces and bold leaps across the decades. Now, with the arrival of BelCanto Group, we step ahead once more.The origins of our company started back in the 1980s when a small New Zealand engineering business began manufacturing steel fencing and gates for swimming pools.  The company thrived, winning new work and contracts regularly. However we were not comfortable with coasting along. After researching lead times and product life-spans we made the leap from steel to aluminium in the 90s and, with our team of designers, engineers and project managers, made the leap into the commercial sector.Here we increased our market presence with new product lines and manufacturing expertise. By the early 2000s we were well placed as one of New Zealand’s premier aluminium fabricators and in 2011 opened a purpose built factory and powder-coating plant in Levin.  With the two distinct divisions of the company requiring specific attention and support the big decision was made as the decade drew to a close to separate into new brands and businesses. Urban Group continued on with the fencing, gates and automation sphere. BelCanto Group was established to focus all of our balustrade, balcony and façade business.Now we are in the 20s and are on the front foot once more, building New Zealand’s beautiful. Here, ‘beautiful’ covers a lot of ground within our ethos.  Yes, it is the final result. But so too is it the process. Pragmatic efficiency is beautiful. Effective innovation is beautiful.  A lot has changed within the industry over the last three decades – and this rate of change looks set to accelerate. We will maintain pace with the industry and the needs of our clients, delivering pioneering solutions that ensure New Zealand’s built environment can continue to connect, protect and uplift its people.Looking back we are proud of our history, of the projects completed and the relationships forged. Looking forward, we are excited with the opportunities ahead. This is an exhilarating time to be working smarter and harder for our buildings, our towns, our cities and our communities. With a hugely experienced team, innovative business partners and our wide-ranging expertise we aspire to a beautiful tomorrow.
