Larch Glulam Timber Engineering
Larch glulam was chosen as the best engineering solution. Stability was the key concern, as the cantilevered structure would reach out from internal to external, allowing for faceted glazing that would make the most of the spectacular views.
Carpenter Oak designed and made the frame in our Devon yard. Rather than our team bringing the frame to site, it was supplied and erected by the main contractor Blacknoll Limited, who described the structure as a ‘work of art.’
The glazing backs onto the post line, with the glulam secured by bespoke steel post-shoes.
The venue reopened on 9 May 2019. St Austell Brewery’s Director, Steve Worrall, said: “A big thanks to everyone who has worked on the project and those who have waited so patiently for us to reopen. We pride ourselves on investing in pubs for the long-term whilst enhancing the communities within which we operate. We’re delighted that our new extended dining area has increased the capacity of our restaurant and therefore allowed us to employ 20 new staff from the local area.”
