L&M Keating

Job Location:
Mount St Annes, Killenard, Co. Laois
Project Details:
Mild Steel and 12mm Toughened Safety Glass Balustrade, with Stainless Steel Disc Clamps and Oak Handrail

Back in November 2012 Extreme Steel were invited to Tender for balustrade work down in Mount St Annes in Killenard for L&M Keating Ltd (Main Contractor) where extensive renovation works were being carried out.

We met on site with Mr Michael Delaney (Senior Quantity Surveyor) and walked through the project and looked through the drawings and Bill of Quantities package.

The client was keen on getting our end of the work started so we quickly set about pricing the package. We were immediately awarded the work.

Extreme Steel began fabrication in December 2012 in our workshop in Newcastle, Dublin and were able to get in on site and have the first important section completed before the Christmas close.

All works were completed to our designed CAD Drawings which were approved by the Architect involved.

Materials used in the construction of the Balustrade and frames were as follows;

  1. 60x 15mm Flat Uprights.
  2. 60x 12mm Horizontals.
  3. 12mm thick Toughened Safety Glass.
  4. Specially designed and manufactured Brackets to take the 40mm diameter Stainless Steel Disc Clamps.
  5. 50mm diameter Treated Oak Handrails.

The proudest moment for me on this job was when we arrived on site with 64 glass panels, each with 4 holes in them, when fitted matched our steelwork and every panel fit like a dream. That’s when you know all the quality checks and hard work pays off.
Damien Donegan, Owner of Extreme Steel

Both the Architect and Main Contractor were very impressed with the quality of Extreme Steels work and their obliging attitude upon completion. So much so that Extreme Steel won the contract for all the stainless steel and toughened glass work for the exterior of the building.
