A LARGE canopy has been erected over an 450-seat amphitheatre at the Conkers leisure attraction in the National Forest in Leicestershire.
Roger Bullivant secured two masts into the ground to support the 600m 2 canopy. The supporting masts are founded on 225mm driven steel tubular piles, rock socketed into the strata. The permanent steel liners and the rock sockets were filled with concrete and reinforced.
Canopy guide ropes are secured with 55 steel cased, driven mini piles.
Access restrictions meant Bullivant had to hoist the 1.25t mini-rig into place by crane.
