Food Court Canopy

Baytex Manufacturing Co Ltd.

The purpose of this job was to design, engineer, manufacture and install a canopy structure to cover an empty lot that would become a ‘semi-enclosed’ food court, integrating into the Proprietor’s existing indoor market area on Wellington’s busy Willis Street, in the heart of the CBD. The site constraints, with the site being next to the busy roadside and being surrounded by the existing car park building and lift to which the canopy had to be integrated to, meant that the team was happy to be able to successfully complete the 5-day installation.

Swindon Designer Outlet

Fabric Architecture Limited

The Designer Outlet Village in Swindon is housed within one of several restored steam rail engine workshops, originally designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. The historic building, built by Great Western Railway, had been derelict since 1986 when 140 years of locomotive manufacture and repair ended. Following a complete restoration and conversion, The Designer Outlet Village opened in 1997 and in 2014 this popular retail and leisure destination underwent a £35million expansion that included redevelopment of the Grade II listed Long Shop. Part of the expansion project included a new crèche and a “Wall Holla” adventure playground in the central courtyard – the first of its kind in the UK. Within the courtyard a tensile canopy would be fixed to the wall to provide shade and shelter over a long, double-height interactive climbing frame. Practical in its provision of all-weather shelter, our 38m long canopy runs the length of the playground following the line of the Long Shop building and covers the double-height climbing frame underneath. It provides just over 330sqm of shelter, divided across 9 bays and fixed to a series of 3.5m tall legs at the front. By fixing the back of the canopy to the building with a structural gutter and down pipes, which feed into the existing water management system, we further protected the playground underneath.
