2). 2. Cantilever balconies, achieved by either: • Moment connections to brackets attached to torsionally stiff edge beams. • Moment connections to ‘wind-posts’ connected between adjacent floors. 5. 3. 6). 7). In the first case, no vertical load is transferred to the structure or façade of the building, except for horizontal restraints. In the second case, the size of the balcony is limited in order to reduce the moments that are transferred to the internal structure. Often balconies can be carefully positioned in re-entrant corners of the building to reduce these moments.

Tying reinforcement required in hollow-cores, or in-situ concrete topping preferred. • Soffit can be directly painted but single layer plasterboard is preferred. • Battened floor for acoustic insulation.
