Portlands Loft


The Portland Lofts project involved the complex construction of aluminium sub-structures and MyDek’s Composite Cement Luxura Board on top. These structures were specifically designed to provide tenants with easy access to their properties from their terraced areas. The construction process was meticulous and focused on ensuring structural safety and long-term durability.

Purpose of Aluminium Structures

The aluminium structures were strategically positioned to enhance accessibility and convenience for tenants. By incorporating the aluminium structures, the terraced areas became easily accessible for the tenants. This not only improved the aesthetics of the project but also enhanced the overall fluidity of the space.

Structural Safety

The safety of the structures was a top priority throughout the construction phase. The aluminium materials used were carefully chosen for their strength and resistance to corrosion. The structures were carefully designed to withstand the intended use and to last for many years. Additionally, proper installation techniques were employed to ensure the stability of the structures, minimizing potential risks.

Usage and Longevity

The aluminium structures built for the Portland Lofts project were built to last. They were designed to withstand the wear and tear of regular use and to withstand changing weather conditions. Proper maintenance and timely repairs will be essential to ensure the longevity and functionality of the structures. By adhering to proper maintenance practices, the aluminium structures can continue to provide a safe and practical solution for accessing tenants’ properties for years to come.

I have no hesitation in highly recommending ALU Installations. They provided us with a real proactive and responsible team of operatives. Who, not only helped us out on our project but went over and above their work brief. Our program had fallen behind schedule due to previous poor contractor installations, ALU managed to complete more work in less time whilst providing installation of the highest standards I have seen. ALU's project supervisor Kevin, won our monthly site safety league award during their works with us. ALU Installations are a top quality company who provide outstanding service.
