Finning CAT at Hillhead Quarry

  Finning CAT at Hillhead Quarry

Held in a limestone quarry in the heart of the Derbyshire countryside, Hillhead is the largest exhibition of its kind anywhere in the world.

Continually adapting, it provides a spectacular and unique setting for exhibitors and visitors alike to do business amongst live working demonstrations and static displays.

We were approached by Nest Studios who were Designing and Managing the project for Finning CAT to supply the temporary structure.


The Vision

The vision was to supply a contemporary looking temporary structure in keeping with brand image of Finning CAT.

Working closely with the design team at Nest Studios, we based our structure on their initial designs ensuring the structure provided sufficient activation and customer engagement space.


 The System

Designed and managed by Nest Studios, we supplied a 10M X 15M single decked, dome roof structure with architectural walling.

Later in the project, the client, had the need for an additional 5Mx 5M space, and utilising the Space Building System, the design was altered and approved, prior to delivery on site. Due to the unique Space Building System, this reconfiguration of the structure was easily accomplished with minimum disruption.

The all-terrain platform within the Space Building System, easily accommodated the undulating site without the need for an additional scaffold sub-frame.

In addition to the structure,  we also supplied HVAC for the structure, which included co-ordination with the client to ensure the completed structure was delivered on time and to the end clients standards.
