Please describe the project specifications

Multiple tiered cantilevered structure laced with ribbon styled fabric panels to shade an outdoor seating area.

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

To shade guests while adding a unique architectural feature to a a new modern addition to Daytona International Speedway.

What is unique or complex about the project?

The client required an area to be shaded that used a minimal amount of columns over a large guest seating area. The system was designed with oversized columns that allow beams to span long distances and upper framing to cantilever across the shaded area and still maintain the required structural capacity to meet the coastal 160 mph hurricane force wind loads.

What were the results of the project?

The inviting structure supplies the much needed shade and adds an exciting feature that compliments the unique modern architecture of the project.
