Friends of Frendsbury Gardens
All project team members have donated their time, expertise and materials pro-bono to help Frendsbury Gardens achieve their vision. Alongside Ramboll, the project team includes contractor Mace, architect Tom Kyle, GKR Scaffolding, OSC Sales and Cut & Construct.
Tom Harley-Tuffs, senior engineer at Ramboll, comments: “We love it when we get to use our skills and expertise to really benefit a community. This a totally unique project, with unusual and technically challenging geometry that has been fun to push the limits of design and manufacturing.
Continuing the community involvement has been a key driver to the build. From making and decorating the tile cladding, to piecing together the complex plywood structure, local residents and volunteers are a major part of the design and construction process.
Frendsbury Garden has undergone an incredible transformation over the past few years, and this timber shelter will be an iconic centrepiece to the regeneration. I can’t wait to see it in use.”
Ramboll has always been a company driven by a sense of purpose and a strong set of values. Frendsbury Gardens aligns perfectly with Ramboll’s mission to create sustainable societies where people and nature flourish. As a signatory of the Time to Change Employer Pledge, Ramboll is a strong supporter of the mental health agenda and was delighted to help Frendsbury Gardens increase the support they offer to the local community.
