Meeting BLHIs environmental commitments, while supporting their LEED Programme was crucial. The fabric selected was one that Fabric Architecture helped pioneer called Silicone Glass Weave. This fabric offers 40% light transmission and will last 30+ years. It can be fully recycled and it has resistance to mold, pollution and day-to-day grime from cars, planes and dust. In addition, local steel was sourced to reduce our carbon footprint.
The solution is a fully modified version of a Fabric Architecture Signature Structure product called the Monsoon. The Monsoon was modified from its original design to accommodate 11 car spaces and engineered for extreme local weather. The result is an elegant white hypar structure offering all weather protection. Canopies are connected with modern looking steel columns and a framework that measures 100 x 20.
