Delivering innovative, award-winning civil and structural engineering solutions: Thomasons brings exceptional design to the construction industry
The Truvia Voyage of Discovery, Selfridges Rooftop Boating Lake
It was an historic moment – complete with cocktails and a dyed green lake – Selfridges roof garden opened for the first time since World War Two. With a madcap boating lake, thousands of plants and a cocktail bar the prestigious London store has definitely plunged its garden into the 21st Century.
And The Truvia Voyage of Discovery art installation, which is open to the public, even has a special Selfridges lifeguard to keep watch for any risky rowing techniques in the 12 boats on hand.
Thomasons’ brief was to review the capacity of the existing roof structure at Selfridges, Central London, in the view to install a temporary boating lake for the launch of a new product. This area of the building was constructed in the mid 1920’s and so detailed investigation works were required to confirm the buildings construction and enable us to review the existing steel sizes and connection details.
All investigations and structural design was carried out within 5 weeks and steelwork erected within 3 weeks of issuing construction issue drawings.
Thomasons would like to thank all our friends and clients for their continued support
