Boom Construction commissioned LSJ Engineering to create a new build for Horatio’s Garden at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in 2018.
- Client: Boom Construction
- Structural detail by: Mark Ebbs
- Job Duration: February 2018-September 2018
We were asked to design, supply and fit an unusual structure for a charity-funded garden at Stoke Mandeville Hospital. The structure was formed by steel plate ‘wings’ supported on columns but also restrained by torsion rods. These wings were clad with timber and had window support frames suspended from the ends. This created the illusion of a floating structure. The design process was quite complicated, but thanks to our state-of-the-art drawing software, we were able to model the structure and have the sections CNC laser cut for accuracy.
