The installation of 4mm M8 tensioned vertical cables with cross brace and cross clamps was a feat of engineering that required a rigorous shop drawing, design, and engineering process.

Despite the complexity of the task, the installation went smoothly thanks to the meticulous planning that went into it. The cables were installed across multiple voids and openings, as well as on the rooftop, requiring thousands of holes to be drilled, tapped, or isolated. Despite the number of fixings required, the final result was an elegant detail with many of the fixings covered by joinery.

Overall, the installation of these tensioned vertical cables is a testament to the importance of careful planning and attention to detail in achieving a successful engineering project.
