There’s a popular myth that Britain has somehow lost its engineering expertise. Try telling that to Tenfold Engineering based in Abingdon, Oxfordshire.

The company has developed a series of highly innovative and efficient folding systems useful in countless applications, the most eye-catching of which are self-deploying buildings. Arriving on site on the back of a large lorry, the buildings unfold into shape in only eight minutes.

All the buildings can be supplied with solar panels for off-grid living and well-heeled garden lovers can even specify the self-deploying tree house as below.
