Raise the Roof, the Structure is Sound!

8th June 2014

We immediately set about finishing the joint between the arched entrance and the dome, and added an extra layer for security to keep a neat seal under the skylight. Once this had been done we could set about the task of removing the formwork and wait of the moment of truth, whether the structure would hold. It took a while but bit by bit we removed the formwork, under the anticipating watch on everyone on site and despite our last minute doubts, the arch and dome held, not moving an inch, now we can only hope it stands the test of time this well. As the day progressed we also successfully removed the window form work and so with a structurally sound building we began to model the first layer of the tyre roofing system and then decided following such success to pack up and finish the day a little earlier than normally. Success!
