Abell Nepp - Kitchen Garden Roof Installed

Kitchen Garden Roof Installed

A major milestone for the Wellcome Trust Conference Centre's Kitchen Garden Enclosure has been achieved: the frame of the parametrically-modelled glazed roof has been installed. The enclosure of the heritage Kitchen Garden, designed by Abell Nepp with Arup engineers, will create new space for conference centre breakout, exhibition, and catering space for the world-renowned scientific conference centre.

Waagner-Biro of Austria have fabricated and are installing the complex skewed elliptical roof on behalf of the Contractor, RG Carter. Waagner-Biro are known for some of the most sophisticated steel and glass structures including the British Museum Library's atrium roof. The frame has been installed with working tolerances of 2mm for the entire structure during construction and when fully loaded.
