Architecturally Clad and Soffited Canopy

Project: Pembury Hospital, Kent

Value: £220,000
Product: Architecturally clad and soffited canopy
Main Canopy: 26 metres long x 7 metres wide
Programme: Phased over 18 months

As part of a Laing O’Rourke contract, Broxap was tasked with the design, manufacture and installation of six bespoke canopies at the hospital. The canopy designs were to form a major focal point for the hospital, some of which needed to interface to the main structural steelwork of the building. Due to the required build phases and a restriction of the areas available to the Principal Contractor, Broxap was required to build the canopy in two separate phases; separated by 12 months. This required extensive surveying detail at the initial build phase to ensure an accurate match-up upon commencement of the second phase of construction.
