NiftyLift - Circular Creche
Providing Solutions for the construction of unusual and difficult buildings is second nature to timber engineers Benfield ATT. This circular crèche for Niftylift, international manufacturers of Cherry Pickers, Access Platforms and Work Platforms is no exception.
Designed by Q2 Architects of Towcester, WS Project Consulting asked Benfield ATT to create an appropriate structure from the concept design, all to be supported by a single, central pole, with ‘Cartwheel Spokes’ radiating to the underside of the roof. Clad in board on board cedar, it will have a cedar shingle roof and a central zinc ‘cone’ for services and extraction. The building is on target for completion in late Autumn 2016.
