Trinity West Leeds

Novum was appointed to design, manufacture and install the glazed roof light and supporting structure. The BK-System grid shell structure with hidden prestressed fasteners provided an elegant and lightweight solution. The complex geometry was optimized to produce a solution ensuring the glass panels were supported in their own plane over the tight radius of the curve. Novum's ECG-System was selected as it dealt with the geometry in a way that a linear solution could not. The bolted system allowed for rapid and controlled installation.
