Eden Project’s Biome Canopy Walkway, Cornwall

From 1998 to 2001, Rod was involved in the Eden Project Big Build – a design and construction project to deliver the £450,000 rainforest biome’s canopy walkway experience.

The walkway opened to visitors during the summer 2013, after a 20-week project duration, and now provides Europe’s leading rainforest education resource: a learning experience that includes a base camp, two bridges, a shelter and elevated canopy paths.

The project was a major undertaking in tropical conditions. However, the rainforest biome remained open during the construction period, with the visitor experience unimpeded.

The walkway was delivered on time and within a very tight budget, fulfilling the Eden team’s creative vision and ambitions.

Jo Elworthy at the Eden Project said:

Having worked and collaborated with the team on many previous successful projects, we had no hesitation in appointing them once again, thanks to their professional approach and ability to deliver a project on time and on budget.
