Make way for the walkway…

During yesterday’s fit-up sessions, one of the main scenic components that was completed was the walkway that stretches diagonally across the stage.  This section, which includes the large breeze block flats so beautifully painted by the scenic art team, is made from several pieces of steel deck built on a slant, bolted together and supporting the brick flats.  Here you can see second year students Seb and Will, with third year James and construction lecturer Edd painstakingly securing the flats in place, making sure the joins are as invisible as possible. 


One part of the walkway that is an interesting feature is the infill section.  This part of the flat gets swapped out during the show and replaced with the graffiti that Max painted so it needs to blend in perfectly.  What do you think?
