We manufactured and installed The Hub’s canopy which is suspended from the surrounding buildings, a tricky feat of engineering and a test of our 3D modeling systems. The hub is constructed from a three chord rolled steel truss which is clad with steel panels and supports a state of the art inflatable ETFE cushion.
The Hub will be the first permanent outdoor 3D sound performance space in the country. The Hub’s 3D sound system can be configured to broadcast any live or recorded sound. A unique ambient ‘soundscape’ has been composed for The Hub by Illustrious Company. The soundscape will provide an immersive sound experience and will include elements of recordings made in and around Workington in October 2006.
