Please describe the project specifications

The project is located in Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen campus, as the corridor to a laboratory building. Building area is about 250 square meters, 13 meters wide and 25 meters long. The awning is triple-layered cushion structure system that is supported by steel work and with complete gutter drainage. Membrane area of each layer is 300 square meters and material is AGC’s Fluon ETFE film, model 250NJ.

What was the purpose of this project? What did the client request?

The purpose of the project was to provide an architectural shade and met well with the existing building. We were required to install the secondary steelwork, the ETFE membrane roof, guttering system and fittings.

What is unique or complex about the project?

The awning consists of eight cushion units, each unit with 2.2 meters wide and 13 meters long. The specialized ETFE aluminum-alloyed fasteners are used to connect with the gutter through screws around the cushion units. Because the characteristics of the film itself, the compensation value is small. In order to achieve better architectural effects, we have determined the compensation value of the material through small model experiment, and it was proved to be a good effect.

What were the results of the project?

The client was extremely satisfied with end result, and the performance of the crew and management on site. The project was completed with a perfect safety record.
