CoxGomyl bears load in Paddington
10 November, 2010
At a new development in Paddington Basin, London, CoxGomyl Integral have designed an elegant, hidden, system to support building maintenance units. The Merchant Square development contrasts modern architecture with the canal boats in the Paddington Basin. At the centre of this development is the Carmine building where it is essential that its clean triangular lines are not spoilt by the building maintenance units used externally for cleaning and access. Rather than to simply park the units on the skyline, they are withdrawn from the edge and then dropped behind the façade by a lifting system designed by CoxGomyl Integral of Sheffield. The lifts handle 9 tonnes of the building maintenance unit and its carriage using a complete drive system with screw jacks supplied by Lenze.
