Modern Office Balustrades For Autocab

Modern Industrial Elegance: SMART Balustrades upgrade Autocab’s Innovative Manchester Offices

Project Overview

Autocab’s new offices in Manchester aimed to integrate contemporary design elements within an industrial architectural framework. The project involved installing balustrades by SMART Balustrades to accentuate the modern aesthetic and provide a secure environment for the office space.


The challenge was to seamlessly integrate the balustrades into the modern industrial design, incorporating exposed steelwork and services while maintaining a cohesive and elegant appearance. The selected balustrade system needed to meet safety standards while aligning with the architectural vision.

This choice not only provided the necessary safety features but also harmonized with the industrial aesthetic, incorporating the exposed steelwork and services seamlessly.

Working under office design and build specialists ADT Workplace, SMART Balustrades executed the installation meticulously. The balustrades were carefully integrated into the building’s layout, enhancing the safety and aesthetics of the stairs, atriums, and bleacher seating areas.
