Special Effects student builds model of NDAC Wooden Wigwam

NDAC Wooden Wigwam Model

We recently spotted the following tweet on the NDAC Twitter timeline by Emily Norris (@emilyanorris).

Wooden Wigwam ModelWe were so impressed by the models she made of our Wooden Wigwams that we got in touch with Emily to find out the full story.

Emily is an artist studying Technical Arts and Special Effects at the University of the Arts, London. During a visit to the Wire Zip Slide Emily came up with the idea of a glamping trip to the NDAC as a fun present for her boyfriend’s birthday.

"
The gift was for my boyfriend’s birthday as a little fun getaway when we are both home from university.
We go to different universities so it is a great way for us to spend a bit of time together"

 

Rather than just telling her boyfriend about the gift with a card, Emily used her creative talents to create the model of our Wooden Wigwams.

"
Making him the model wigwam was the only fitting way to explain what I had bought him. I like to give gifts that the individual would never have thought of.
On visiting the centre to have a go on The Wire, I realised the Wigwams were the perfect present"

 

More of Emily’s creative work can be seen online via her Facbook page.

£50,000 Infrastructure Development at NDAC Chepstow

Sewage Treatment Plant Groundworks at NDAC Chepstow

Sewage Treatment Plant Groundworks at NDAC ChepstowWe’ve recently been carrying out groundworks for a new £35,000 ANUA Sewage Package Treatment Plant at the NDAC site.

It may not be the most glamorous of developments, but it contributes to the continuing investment and improvement of the NDAC’s infrastructure.

This sewage plant will support the new Deluxe Wigwams and the growth of the site over the next ten years.

The images show the groundworks taking place to open up a trench, 16 metres long and 3 metres deep. Due to the limestone in the ground, this is no easy job and progress is very slow.

With the groundworks, this project is expected to cost in the region of £50,000 and forms part of our ongoing commitment to improve the your experience at the NDAC.
