The delivery and installation of the Cubes required road closures, hiab vehicles and a Spider Crane to get everything in place before the installation could even commence.
Despite the tight space, the Cubes fitted exactly as planned and when the final top Cube sections were lifted in place, they were within 8mm over the overall height of 7.5m … particularly satisfying!
Massey & Harris glazed the top Cubes with toughened, laminated, 2m panes of glass. These were also fitted without a hitch and looked fantastic.
The installation attracted a huge amount of local interest: passers-by offered their guesses as to what the structure was going to be including new offices for Architects and a Swedish type home!
The end result was stunning. The school now had a multi-level vertical playground consisting of nets, platforms, a trip door up onto a deck with seating and a performance space with planting and glazed panels.
It was a time consuming and often complicated project, but a truly rewarding one to be part of.
