Tata Steel erected a new unique temporary pavilion for the year’s International Triatholon Union World Championship in Hyde Park this weekend.
The pavilion formed the centrepiece for the Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU World Cup which took place in Hyde Park this weekend.
The pavilion is a post-tensioned latticed arched structure made up of structural steel hollow sections. The pavilion measures 25m by 10m with an overall height of 6m. The roof is made up of five white clad panels which together can accommodate up to 200 guests.
Tata has worked in collaboration with Australian based consultant S2 to develop the structure. The 37.9T domed structure sits on four pads which did not require any alteration to the ground prior to erection.
“We wanted to create some better then simple temporary grandstands,” said Tata Steel senior architect Matthew Teague. “The pavilion uses bolted connections and takes about 6 hours to put together.”
Tata hope to target other events requiring quality temporary structures such as the London 2012 Olympics.
