The technology used to mobilise cranes and create bespoke mechanical handling equipment is actually the same technology behind many elaborate moving structures and mobile sections of buildings.
SCX Special Projects' experience with cranes, rails, tracks and bogies, coupled with our automation capabilities, means that even elaborate structures can be mobilised using reliable track and bogie systems. For example, it was the synchronisation of hundreds of individual moving parts coupled with powered end carriages running on static rails that mobilised the Wimbledon Centre Court Retractable Roof.
Our ability to discover and develop a robust, reliable and efficient system in response to your needs, allows you the architect, to realise your most adventurous ideas, while at the same time providing a hugely dependable overall solution.
SCX Special Projects' numerous moving structure installations have covered a variety of unusual applications. From deployment systems for protective coverings, to entire moveable sections of buildings, SCX Special Projects can develop the means to either mobilise existing structures or create new mobile sections that seamlessly integrate into your design.
