Wedding Marquee – Buckland House, Devon

Dedicating time for continual professional development (CPD) is an important factor in maintaining our knowledge of developments in materials, processes and methods. We also always make time to experiment with new applications in glulam technology. One project, which was informed by our investigation is our glulam marquee.

We are currently researching the application of modular frameworks, specifically geodesic domes. In our workshop, we are developing a combination of glulam components to form small, self-supporting structures. Once completed we hope to be able to offer a ‘self build’ component pack. This will enable our customers to compose their own structures, modifying the detail, finish, position (and number) of window and door openings.
