If association with award-winning projects is a true reflection of Neaco’s product quality, then our ever-growing list of examples provides an impressive testimony. The latest case is an exceptional development of luxury homes in Chesterton, near Cambridge, by HC Moss (Builders) Ltd.
This recently completed scheme, called ‘Reflections’ in recognition of its picturesque waterside frontage, won Best Small Development in the 2017 Cambridge News Property Awards which took place last month. Neaco supplied our Clearline structural glass balustrade to the decking and first floor terraces, maximising the benefits of a beautiful outlook which takes in the adjoining River Cam and extends across Stourbridge Common.
Designed with timber cladding to create a classic boat house aesthetic, the homes at Reflections offered high-end luxury and attracted healthy demand: they were priced in the region of £1.5m and all six properties have now been sold. The development was nominated by the public in the 2017 Cambridge News Property Awards, which celebrate outstanding performers and achievements in the region’s property market over the course of the year.
Paul Ursell, Managing Director of HC Moss (Builders) Ltd, commented on the benefits of Neaco’s structural glass:
“We incorporated frameless bi-fold doors to open out onto the rear of each property. We needed to match this with frameless glass balustrade affording a seamless outlook over the river, so Neaco’s system was ideal in this respect. Every detail needed to be very high-end so we specified a stainless steel top rail to cap the structural glass.”
Neaco’s products are featured at a number of other award-winning projects which were completed in 2017, including decking on the latest phase of the acclaimed Seaham North Dock regeneration in County Durham and external walkways at the Materials Innovations Factory, a science research facility built as part of a unique public/private partnership between the University of Liverpool and Unilever. We have also supplied specifications to numerous other award winners over the years, including pedestrian and cycle way decking at the Gateshead Millennium Bridge, a landmark development which scooped the 2002 Stirling Prize.
Neaco’s diverse product range also includes handrails, balustrade, balconies, adaptive bathing facilities and aluminium open grilles for flooring, screening, cladding and shading applications. All products are backed by a class-leading Lifetime Guarantee.
