CMG Buliding Solutions Inc.

CMG Building Solutions Inc. was formed in 2009 and is the authorized Norseman Structures dealer in Ontario. The company evolved from a need in the fabric building industry for service, cover replacement and building permit applications.

The initial focus was on a niche market assisting clients with applying and obtaining municipal building permits throughout the province. With the number of fabric covered buildings in Ontario exceeding 6000, an obvious extension of CMG Building Solutions Inc. became servicing fabric covered buildings and replacing covers.

More recently, CMG has added general contracting to its list of services.  CMG's professional crew can perform both commercial and residential renovations.

Singapore Zoological Gardens Amphitheatre

Enlarge picture

Multimedia Engineering was given the task of upgrading this famous Amphitheater and the nearby Carousel in March 2010. The project was successfully completed in May 2010 just in time for the June school holiday.

  The amphitheatre roof is a half ellipsoidal dome of steel and ADASTM PTFE-coated tensile fabric. The elliptical curvature of the roof provides its own tension, which leads to less material being used hence a lower weight and cost. The main roof comprises of six numbers of planar trusses, built using hot dipped galvanized circular hollow sections and connected together with an innovative cruciform connector. The lateral connections are formed by the secondary planar frame resulting in strong and rigid structure which facilitates the transfer of wind and rain loads from the tensile membrane roof to the columns and finally to the foundation. This state of the art ADASTM tensile membrane roof covers a seating and performing area of 1000m2 , with 45m of clear span between the supports, providing sufficient space for the various animals to showcase their acrobatic skills and entertain the audience. The height of the column is 15m, providing an unobstructed view of the magnificent Mandai Lake.

SAM@8Q is a structure based from non conformist architecture

[email protected] is a structure based from non conformist architecture.The structure is very unique with the fusion of simplicity and edge, rightful to be called as an "art" itself. And with this, the setting of the appropriate canopy at the grounds of SAM is challenge enough to be won.
The construction of the tensile membrane roof began in September 2010 and was completed in November of the same year.
The canopy may be perceived as symmetrical on first glance, but the more the spectators view the design, it will be found diametrical.

Facts about tensile structures

tensile structure

Tensile structures are widely used as a means of protection against the weather in publicly used spaces. This is because such buildings can span large distances and are esthetically pleasing. Tensile structure is a construction of elements carrying only tension and no compression or bending. Tensile structures are generally supported by some form of compression or bending elements for example the masts in The O2, known as the Millennium Dome.
