Design and construction of a 30 m cruciform bridging access system erected at the church floor level with one decked quadrant providing a working platform. The structure was fitted with a bespoke suspension wire lifting system to raise the module to the 30m level of the Whispering Gallery. The system was also designed to rotate 360 degrees to facilitate restoration works.
Palmers showed incredible innovation and deterrmination to deliver a temporary structure of awe inspiring beauty and impeccable practicality. (Ulrike Knox, Knox Mccon nell Architects)
