Duo-pitch/Cantilevered Walkway Canopy

Project: Fawkon Walk, Hertfordshire
Principal Contractor: Broxap Limited
Value: £77,000
Product: Duo-pitch walkway canopy
Size: 30 metres long x 5 metres wide
Programme: 16 weeks

This popular residential and shopping area offered unit owners and shoppers all year weather protection, providing a water tight, UV filtered, high level airy canopy. The walkway features a duo-pitch roof design using impact proof acrylic glazing sheets. Slender columns supporting the roof minimise obstructions beneath the canopy, whilst the white framework complemented surrounding buildings and shop units. Cantilevered acrylic canopies were also provided to extend the coverage already present on the development. Broxap designed and engineered the final solution, which was installed under challenging conditions.

Cladding work was also undertaken as part of the sub-contract package.
