Hillcrest Views, at 124 Hillcrest Road, is a stylish and contemporary structure developed to provide a high standard of student accommodation close to the Waikato University. It combines low maintenance materials with clean lines and complementary colour combinations. The balustrade features a Matt Black powder coat finish in keeping with the joinery and other secondary colour schemes.
Hamilton-based commercial and residential construction specialists, Lobell Construction, specified Provista’s ‘Summit’ semi-frameless solution to provide stylish balustrades to the nine apartments contained within the development. Managing Director and Senior QS, Ellyse Meredith-Wilkie, advises she chose Provista “because the solution was competitively priced and well presented by the local Provista representative, and the Summit semi-frameless style achieves the unobstructed outlook from the decks that was desired."
In keeping with the design of the building, the solution also features a ‘Retro’ rectangular handrail profile. Provista’s ‘Ultra’ three-way post profile has been utilised offering completely hidden face-fixings for a very clean and lineal result. The glass utilised is Metro Performance Glass 10mm Toughened Safety Glass.
Provista Semi-Frameless solutions are very adaptable to different building types, looking great on modern or classical residential or commercial structures and, in this case, have provided a safe, practical and modern solution that complements the design and look of the accommodation complex.
Commenting on the solution quality and workmanship provided by Provista Balustrade Systems, Bill Young, Lobell Construction Project Manager for the Hillcrest Views build, states Waikato-based Provista representative, Nick Bryant, “is an absolute professional in all aspects of what he delivers onsite to the build. Nick takes pride in his product and the end result. Nothing is left for chance and nothing is a problem to him. Great service, great result.”
