Deadline: Friday 18 November

Specification

We are currently converting a Thames barge into The November Project, a new self-sustaining centre for environmental innovation/climate change adaptation including an arts, music and exhibition space, community space and private venue, showcased eco-tech and boat building workshop overlooking Parliament and the London Eye. The entire project will be powered by tidal energy.

The barge is moored mid-river in an extremely high profile location right opposite Parliament on Westminster reach. This could provide an excellent test bed opportunity for a new/innovative product.

The goal We need a roof that can be partly or wholly removed and replaced.

The idea The concept for the roof is a versatile tensile structure, supported by a mast. We are inviting offers from companies for 100m2 of material for this. The material needs to be non-pvc and ideally highly durable. See artists impression sketch on the top left of this page.

We are open to trialling innovative materials.

Key points

  • high profile test bed opportunity
  • non-pvc material for tensile structure on the Thames
  • build location on the tidal Thames means the material needs to be able to endure/designed for this type of environment

Timeline The build has begun and providing we we find the right materials and considering this is a small-scale project we aim to complete the roof stage by the end of the year.
