Expanded Metal and Open Steel Flooring Case Study
Opened in 2008 and designed by Marks Barfield Architects (designers of the London Eye), the 200 metres long by 18 metres high treetop walkway at Kew Gardens is constructed from weathering steel and believed to be strong enough to last 500 years, with the expanded steel used in the floor and sides of the walkway requiring minimal maintenance. The £3m steel structure runs for 650ft though Capability Brown woodland at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, London and, on a clear day, promises a bird's-eye view of the gardens and the London skyline.
F.H. Brundle was instrumental in supplying some of the materials for this project.
