An attractive curved link walkway canopy at the heart of a new campus development was installed to provide weather protection to students when travelling between the college buildings. This clean architectural design utilises a continuous eaves beam, maximises column centres whilst keeping steel sections to a minimum and benefits from a modular glass layout, which reflects the contemporary colours and textures of the surrounding finishes.
