Specialist Structures Victorious At Showman’s Show
Sapa Profiles UK customer Specialist Structures came up trumps at the Showman’s Show, where they not only bagged top spot for their category but also won the Special Award for Best Exhibition Stand in the show.
Specialist Structures, who achieved first place in the ‘Above 10 Metres Frontage to Below 20 Metres’ , was also crowned ‘Best In Show’ at the Showman’s Show above all other entries. The impressive two storey winning structure benefited from furnishings and fixtures from Creative Spaces by Design and creative landscaping by Natural Green. The structure was constructed using Specialist Structure’s ‘Space Building System’ which was configured in 5m x 5m grids.
Sapa Profiles UK, who provide the aluminium profiles to Specialist Structures, were delighted to play a part in this award-winning structure that utilises pioneering build technology. Developed by Specialist Structures, the ‘Space Building System’ is a sophisticated system that uses the same ‘thirteen cavity’ aluminium profile for all the floor beams, support columns and roof beams.
The eye-catching design incorporated two buildings that were linked by a bridged walkway that led to a viewing platform. The reception area of the structure consisted of a double storey flat roof building and a first floor mezzanine, creating an airy atrium space. Other features included luxury office space, decking and water features and high quality finishes to the interior.
Keith Lewcock, Chief Executive of Specialist Structures comments ‘This system is ideal for creating a show-stopping structure at any event, regardless of the available space. Aluminium profiles pay an integral role to the ingenuity of the system and Sapa have proved to be invaluable in developing it’.
