A 20m portable pavilion load bearing arch roof structure designed and built for the Rhythm and Vines Festival 2013. Since then it’s been used for other major concerts and events including Ragamuffin and The Big Day Out. It’s fast to erect and easy to pack down, taking only 2 hours on it’s first outing.
This incredibly strong and well designed structure was awarded Scaffold of the Year by SARNZ (Scaffold, Access & Rigging NZ Association). It meets NZ’s building code – engineered to withstand 47m/s wind loading, approx 169km/hr (compared with only 35m/s for other international roof systems). Each span can bear 5000kg UDL with point loads of 2000kg – Ideal for rigging a gantry crane for site works. Each module is constructed from trusses 3.5 or 2.0 metres long. The bay width shown is 3.66m.
A 22 x 20m mobile version operating as a tented rolling workshop is currently installed at the Marsden Point Oil Refinery for the Te Mahi Hou expansion project. It can be seen in the last picture.
