Our Tension Structures division recently completed the installation of this tensile fabric cycle shelter canopy for Vinci Construction on the Science and Innovation Campus at Swansea University. Our team worked closely with Vinci to develop the final design, adapting one of our existing 18m x 8m triple conics to provide a more balanced aesthetic while reducing overall costs. All design, engineering, manufacture and installation of the steel support frame and was undertaken by ourselves in conjunction with our technical partners, and the fabric canopy was manufactured in-house at our Caldicot production facility. The programme from appointment to handover of the finished canopy was around four months.

We are pleased to announce that our Tension Structures division has now achieved full Constructionline accreditation, making pre-qualification more straightforward and helping to streamline the tendering process.
Four of us recently donned our penguin suits for a lavish charity bash at the splendid Tortworth Court Four Pillars Hotel in Wotton-under-Edge, organised by Nomenca Ltd as part of their committed fundraising work for WaterAid. The evening was an overwhelming success with fine dining, good company, interesting conversation and excellent networking opportunities.
Of far greater importance, however, were the many thousands of pounds raised for a very worthy cause: delivering safe water, sanitation and hygiene projects in twenty-six countries around the world. Thanks once again to Nomenca for the invitation and to Tortworth Court for hosting the event.
