Bentley Bridge Retail Park

Shopping Mall Fabric Canopy and Walkways

Project Outline

We were commissioned to design, manufacture and install a scheme of fabric architecture to flow seamlessly through the Bentley Bridge Retail Park and would give shoppers that wow factor.

Bentley Bridge Retail Park

Project Outline

At 1,300sqm, the tensile fabric multi-cone entrance is one of the largest single-piece tensile membranes in the UK. It simply defines the building. The detail in the design is both intricate and precise. Five bold white cone structures are tensioned by a web of cables and rigging, locked into the building by a series of steel parapet posts. An additional 450 linear metres of fabric creates an elegant series of link walkways throughout the park, effortlessly nestling the entrance canopy in its fabulous context.

 

Results

Architecturally, the retail park delivers a stunning first impression that almost commands you to stop, stand back and take notice.
