Working with Vinci Construction, this monopitch, bespoke canopy was designed, manufactured and installed into the inner concourse area of the newly built college.

The discreet central leg removes the appearance of uprights supporting the canopy, and the toughened glass roof provides clean lines and overall style. Piled foundations were also undertaken as part of the sub-contract, as necessary for the ground conditions and underpinning needed to support the canopy.

  • Mild steel structural framework
  • Galvanized and powder coated finish
  • Stainless steel grade 316 glazing spiders
  • 10mm toughened glazed roof
  • Specialist glass-sealed joints between each panel
  • Aesthetically pleasing simple design
