Design

We specialise in creating light-weight shade and waterproof structures which are creative and cost-effective and which incorporate iconic features with traditional construction techniques.

MANUFACTURING

From the structural engineers certified drawings, the detailed shop drawings are produced and submitted to the client for approval. The columns, rafters and attachment plates are fabricated, hot-dipped galvanised ready for transport and erection.

The computer-generated fabric patterns are passed to a laser cutter that produces each panel of the membrane. These are then joined with a high-frequency welder to form the final shape.

The stainless steel catenary cables are cut to the required lengths and termination toggles are hydraulically swaged to each end.

The corner plates are laser cut to the determined design angles and drilled ready for fitting to the corners of the fabric.

Installation

A team of experienced riggers is employed for the erection of the structural steelwork and the installation of the fabric with the correct tension to obtain a wrinkle-free membrane skin.
