Heath Hospital Cardiff

Tensile Fabric Courtyard Canopy

Project Outline

Our brief was to install this unique courtyard fabric canopy as a feature to the Heath Hospital in Cardiff. This tensile structure combines design with functionality, providing shelter for the walkways whilst being an excellent and dramatic use of space. Our scope of works included the design, manufacture and installation of the fabric canopy itself as well as the supporting steel structure, handrails, ballustrade, decking and associated fittings.

Our Solution

This was a challenging project. All the components had to be able to be manhandled so they could be carried through the hospital, as this was the only access to the courtyard. This had a big impact on the design which had to be very carefully considered in order to make sure all the requirement of the CDM regulations were achieved. All parties are very pleased with the results of this project and the structure has been a great success.
