Realising Complex Builds

From the uniquely challenging Up at The O2 roofwalk, to the striking entrance canopies at Heathrow Airport Terminal 5, our team has the expertise and capability to realise even the most bold and complex builds. Over the years we’ve tried and tested most concepts, from large-scale cantilever canopies to retractable roof systems, meaning we can identify a design’s feasibility at the outset. By injecting our specialist knowledge from concept design stage all the way through to installation, we ensure quality control at every stage of the process, guaranteeing you a structure that is built to last.

Our Guide to Tensile Structures

Our team of fabric experts have put together a useful handbook for all those involved with tensile structures, from architects and main contractors right through to end clients. Providing a quick and broad understanding of how tensile structures work, the guide will ensure you are better equipped to design, specify, evaluate and commission.

Read the guide and you will be better prepared to understand:

We hope you find the guide interesting and insightful. If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to make contact.

FAQs and Downloads

We have also collated a collection of downloads to help you with your project; from Product Information Sheets about our pre-designed canopies, retractable roofs and facades to a Fabric Comparison Matrix, Pre-qualification Pack and our Terms and Conditions.
