St Agnes Island Hall frame raising

EmanuelHendry were commissioned to design, fabricate and install the Larch structural frame for this 260m2 public building on the the Island of St Agnes, The Isles of Scilly.
We decided raise the whole building by hand, with the help of a 2500 kg maniscopic some turfer winches and some expert rigging.
Here are some videos of the installation.
