Waddesdon Archive Centre

Work at the Waddesdon Archive Centre is progressing well. The first sections of the Oak Grid Shell Roof are underway. The uniquely designed roof to the reading room is constructed from furniture quality laminated oak and incorporates a stressed plywood skin from what we believe could be the world's largest sheets sized at 12m x 3m wide!!

Given the high standards of the finish and quality  the entire building is being constructed under a tented temporary structure with accessible sliding roof panels.

Works are due for completion late 2010.
