Design of an award-winning tiered suspended access platform at Center Parcs, Longleat.
We designed an award-winning suspended access platform for our client iMS Access Ltd to give workers access to repair the 100m diameter domed roof at Center Parcs in Longleat.
The project required that the centre remain fully open to the public during the repairs, since the work would take 30 months to complete, and so we had a unique challenge ensuring our design provided safety for those working on the platform, as well as for nearly 4000 members of the public using the centre below on a daily basis.
Our platforms allowed vital repairs to be carried out on the domed roof while the public area beneath was kept operational throughout the works.
Our design won the Construction News Awards Project of the Year accolade in 2017:
