Barnshaws Structural division in Coseley had a great influence in the £4.2 million Haynes Motor Museum redevelopment, which started in September 2011.
The contractor – Pitney Fabrications- awarded Barnshaws this project due to their vast experience working with construction companies as well as the innovative solutions presented to their client; who was previously unaware that two-plane bending was an option.
Barnshaws’ proposal saved a lot of fabrication and the customer was provided with quality bending within a required timescale.
Barnshaws attention to detail was evaluated during the design meeting to ensure that client’s requirements are met and liason with Pitney’s draughtsmen to realize the proposals.
The redevelopment project involved the replacement of the museum frontage with new entrance, gift shop and restaurant as well as more exhibition space and improved visitor facilities. Barnshaws Structural Division provided the project with 2 plane bending of box sections (200 x 200 SHS; 200x 150 RHS and various UB sections), which delivered a beautiful wave design for the entrance to the building.
