Courtyard Fabric Canopy

Project: Trentham High School, Stoke-on-Trent
Principal Contractor: Wates Construction
Value: £145,000
Product: Courtyard fabric canopy
Coverage: 460 metres2
Programme: 20 weeks

A large waterproof tensile canopy installation at Trentham High School. The canopy spans the recreation yard of the school across a 460m2 break out area. Working with Wates Construction and the Architect, our design brief was to provide a light and airy space without columns or obstructions. The erection of the structural steelwork was achieved via a 500 tonne crane. Once positioned, the PVC fabric membrane was installed and tensioned by a specialist team of ‘rope secured installers’.
