This dual purpose canopy was designed, manufactured and installed as part of an airport transportation improvement project. The canopy is positioned adjacent to the main terminal building and provides both a weather protection link between the car parks and the terminus whilst at the same time servicing the local routes to and from the airport, accommodating five designated route stop points.

  • Galvanized mild steel support frame
  • 5mm thick clear PETg roof sheeting
  • 10mm thick toughened safety glass side screens
  • Single canopy run both straight and facetted in plan to follow the existing road network and bus routes
  • Interconnecting “stepped” roof levels to accommodate existing falls in the ground levels
  • Glass screens and integrated seating provide weather protection and comfort at the route stop points
  • Architectural stainless steel glazing furniture to glass screens
