The second shipment of panels from Rieder has arrived. this means we will soon start to see the pavilion "noses" taking shape.

The "noses" are also where the structure is under the greatest stresses....in order for the material to take these stresses where the vertical load of the roof is being transferred to the horizontal deck, the ribs in these locations are triple laminated by bolting three sheets of 13mm Fibre-C sheets together.

The resulting slot is where the next profile will slide in and complete the laminated splice joint.
