Summary

Ethix have been working with and supplying Associated Press for the last ten years and for the Canonisation AP asked us to supply a small structure in which 3 live positions and two television studios could be set up. In addition the structure had to be 6 floors up on Saint Augustine’s College opposite the basilica for the live shot.

We designed and arranged a structure to be delivered lifted and constructed on the roof of the college using a crane lift,We decked  out the floor and  used lightweight ballast filled with water to give the structure the weight needed for the structural calculations.
