HumanKind – Art Installation at Calke Abbey

GCA were requested to undertake Structural Appraisals of three unique structures installed at Calke Abbey, a Grade 1 listed country house in Derbyshire.

GCA made an empirical Structural Assessment, based on experience and observation, to assess the risks to members of the public which might be incurred over the life of the installations.

A number of modifications were proposed to improve the safety, reliability and durability of the structures.

GCA developed a checklist to enable site staff to monitor the structures without needing ongoing specialist advice, reducing the overall costs of managing the installations.
