Galvanised into action for industry award

Have your say

WORKSOP Galvanizing has won a top industry award for its work on an innovative open air opera auditorium.

The firm won the Galvanizing in Engineering Award for processing more than 150 tonnes of structural steel, used to create a £2 million, 600 seat temporary pavilion, based on the design of a traditional Japanese Kabuki theatre.

The Worksop Galvanizing team worked closely with Nottingham-based engineering firm Sheetfabs Nottm and main project contractor Unusual Rigging of Northampton to produce the framework and secondary architectural steelwork

The auditorium was designed by architects Snell Associates for the Garsington Opera Festival, a month-long musical extravaganza, staged in the grounds of the Getty family’s Wormsley Estate in Buckinghamshire.

The award was presented by the Galvanizers Association, at a ceremony in London.
