22m x 10m Double Crest at Highfield Humanities College, Blackpool

26 October 2012

Tensile Solutions designed, fabricated and installed a 22m x 10m Double Crest at the newly built Highfield Humanities College, Blackpool.

The new tensile structure complements the 8m Crest we designed and installed at the College earlier in the year.

Working for Eric Wright Construction and landscape project architects Plincke, the installation was completed in just two days with the aid of a 50T crane and cherry picker.

The 220m2 fabric structure provides the students with some great outdoor shelter and the tensile fabric canopy is 100% waterproof and blocks 100% of UV.

With a marine specification paint system and stainless steel fixings, the fabric structure is designed, engineered and built to last in this tough costal environment. 

The 22m x 10m Double Crest is now part of our growing range of tensile fabric structures and is available for off the shelf installation UK wide.

Tensile Solutions awarded large tensile fabric structure contract

20 June 2012

Tensile Solutions have been awarded the contract to supply Eric Wright Construction two tensile fabric structures for the under construction Highfield Humanities College in Blackpool.

We were initially approached by Eric Wright Construction in October 2011 and asked to tender for the fabric canopies at the new build College.

Working closely with EWC and landscape architects Plincke we came up with a design proposal that covered the required outdoor areas and fitted within budget. The design was changed from larger hyper forms to Conical in order to achieve this. An 8m diameter conic and a twin 22m x 10m conic will be installed later this year. Watch this space for some pictures...!
