Gothic Arch - Symons Street, Chelsea, UK
Ancon manufactured a special stainless steel Gothic Arch to restrain the natural stone cladding of a prestigious residential development in Chelsea.
The Symons Street Project was an unusual challenge for Haymills Contractors Limited as it involved working with an existing masonry façade as well as New Build. The new courtyard featured an arched window framed by natural stone.
Ancon provided technical advice at an early stage of the project and designed a Gothic Arch to meet the exacting specifications of the stonework. The company’s accuracy in both design and manufacture avoided any difficulties in the installation of the arch on site.
Ancon Lintels are manufactured from stainless steel and do not require any further corrosion protection.
Ancon is a proud sponsor of the 6th UK DISC (Developments in Structural Concrete) Conference, taking place at the Institution of Structural Engineers in London, on 29 November 2018.
Ancon’s recently-extended head office in Sheffield is now home to a unique piece of wall art, thanks to the artistic talents of one of its employees.
