Hollo-bolts support Stonehenge experience

Posted on by in News

Stonehenge visitors centreLindapter’s high clamping force (HCF) Hollo-bolts have been used extensively on the new Stonehenge exhibition and visitor centre that opened in December (see NSC May/June 2013).

A range of M16 and M20 Hollo-bolts were used to connect structural glass fins to the primary steelwork of the café and shop, which are housed within one of two pods that combine to make up the visitor centre.

A feature undulating steel roof supported by more than 200 columns covers both pods.

The Stonehenge centre forms the first phase of English Heritage’s £27M project to transform the visitor experience to the world renowned historic site.

Steelwork contractor for the project was S H Structures.
