One of the greatest challenges was to get the stability required for the canopies with limited fixing points due to the nature of the grade 1 listing, these would require careful selection and approval. The canopies would house projectors which required less than 0.5mm deflection to work correctly requiring a large stable structure but with minimal interference to the building.
Michael came to site on a number of occasions to discuss our options and aid in the design of the structure which proved to be invaluable. Metafab were then able to provide lifting equipment which would lift the steel work into place and also a platform which would allow them to overcome a particularly difficult problem with safe access to a fixing position inside a duct area which had us all scratching our heads! Access into the building was overcome by them creating a simple sectional build as well as changing the wheels of their trolleys used, to non-marking and ply sheeting the work area to protect the listed flooring. A late change of measurement on one section due to the nature of the buildings structure was overcome with no drama and almost overnight.
