EWP Involvement:

The section for the seating was 150x300mm, too large for one piece of timber so it was fabricated from 3 sections finger jointed together and profiled with a 140 radius. A number of sections were curved and a system for levelling the sections was devised to accommodate the varying heights of the concrete supports.
