Project: Atlantic on Romney
Location: Charleston, SC
Architect: Humphrey & Partners
The Roosevelt cable railing project was a comprehensive undertaking aimed at enhancing the aesthetic appeal, safety, and functionality of a multi-use high-rise building. The client's vision was to create a modern and sleek appearance while ensuring the highest standards of safety for the building's occupants. Without limiting the views of downtown Charleston, Patriots Point, and Fort Sumter.
Stainless steel was chosen for its durability, corrosion resistance, and low maintenance requirements. The material not only met safety standards but also provided a contemporary and timeless aesthetic that complemented the high-rise architecture. The railings consisted of 2”x 1” tube top rail, 2” square posts all having a #4 (180 grit) longitudinal brushed finish and 1/8” diameter 1 x19 construction cable infill. Utilizing over 1,100 lineal feet of railing and 14,000+ feet of cable to complete the project.
Our team engaged in the custom fabrication of the stainless steel components, ensuring each piece met exact specifications and field conditions. The cable railing system was seamlessly integrated with the building's structure, offering unobstructed views and a sense of openness with its contemporary industrial design. While conforming to multiple code requirements of mixed-use transitioning from commercial, residential, pool, and local.
The basis of design was modified to accommodate each location and surface condition for commercial units, parking structure and 8 livable floors of units, encompassing bridges, unit dividers, balconies, pool deck and common spaces. The railings mounting needed to work with post-tension reinforced concrete, cast stone, brick, eifs, metal panels systems, steel channels and embeds.
Rigorous quality control measures were implemented at every stage of the project. Each stainless steel component underwent thorough inspections to ensure it met the highest standards for durability, safety, and visual appeal.
The Roosevelt cable railing project on this multi-use high-rise successfully merged form and function. The resulting architectural element not only provided enhanced safety features but also elevated the building's overall design, creating a distinctive atmosphere for its occupants and visitors alike.
Tri Tech was started in our Austell, Georgia location in September of 1977. Initially the primary product was aluminum pipe rails, but as customer requirements and building codes evolved, Tri Tech increased their product lines. Today Tri Tech has many product lines and can custom build product to any specification as well as from a variety of materials.
