Please describe the project specifications

Two concave wedge style awnings, each 13' long, 9' tall, and 2' deep, with heat transferred graphics.

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

The salon wanted a beautiful and elegant entryway with protection from the elements for the high end Shops At The Bravern Shopping center in Bellevue.

What is unique or complex about the project?

The unique shape of the awnings provided limited space for the install team to reach the upper attachment points. In addition, the graphics had to be heat transferred over a sewn seam, which would have drawn unwanted attention to the seams, but turned out perfect.

What were the results of the project?

The client was thrilled with the awnings. They later ordered an additional awning for the men's salon.
