Installed in late 2011 for the opening of the new Westfield Shopping Centre in Stratford, this canopy was originally a little more traditional 'tensile' in shape - but due to demands by local planning, the design was toned down somewhat.
The result is a very simple structure, designed to be unimposing, practical and meet the strict smoking regulations for smoking shelters.
The structure bolts down to a lightweight concrete slab, over which insulation and paving was replaced.
The fabric is a tough PVC coated polyester, resistant to dirt and UV breakdown. We also supplied the IP rated exterior grade heaters and timber switches.
We have designed in an option for increasing the canopy size in the future should the client's requirements change.
