About us

 

 

A M Structures Ltd are a long established Isle of Wight based composites company trading since 1990.

 

Our highly versatile workforce manufactured the Ron Arad, Canary Wharf sculpture at Canada Square in 1999.

 

AMS built and installed the Birmingham Light Wands at the Bullring in 2004.  These masts, the tallest of which is 35 metres are manufactured in composite with rotating stainless steel “leaves” attached around the mast at one metre intervals.

 

We have worked with Costains Ltd to manufacture a 33-metre carbon composite cantilevered roof structure for the refurbished Langdon Park Station at the Docklands Light Railway station.

 

The Paradise Street car park project in Liverpool completed on time and to budget was manufactured in conjunction with Laing O’Rourke. This 1,400 square metre sniper screen is constructed of translucent composite and designed by Wilkinson Eyre.

 

We have previously built the prototype Bradkirk footbridge for Network Rail near Preston manufactured from lightweight composite materials similar to the materials that will be being used to manufacture Foryd Bridge.

 

Our two most recently completed projects are the 26 metre feature lighting masts for the Poole Twin Sails bridge and some 35 metre tall Dune Grass flexible spars installed on Blackpool’s Golden Mile.

 

Foryd Harbour pedestrian and cycle bridge in Ryll, North Wales. In response to a tender call from Denbighshire County Council, Ramboll and Dawnus developed a design proposal consisting of two mirroring 30m long decks which are hinged on a central caisson and lifted by cables running up to a central mast.  AMS asked Gurit to carry out the detailed engineering of the bridge decks, we completed the Bridge on 11th October 2013. The bridge was opened to the public on 22nd October and has been open ever since.

 

During the final stages of the installation of Foryd Harbour bridge AM Structures had already started the construction of the mould of our next project Mardyke Gardens Canopy. This was designed by Darmody Archetects and Engineered by Gurit and built by Am Structures. The Canopy over 16m long, 6m wide and 4.3m tall constructed in Fibreglass with a foam core and using Ampreg 21 Fire Retardent resin was completed in 6 months by AM Structures and was delivered to Cork on the 18th March 2014.
