Portobello Market

Tensile Fabric Canopy

The client required a replacement for the ageing existing fabric roof market cover at Portobello Road Market. Our brief was to provide a new canopy, similar to the existing one but incorporating the latest detailing and tensile fabric technology. This structure provides shelter for the shoppers and market traders as well as encouraging the shoppers to the area. We designed, manufactured and installed the new fabric canopy including rigging cables and fittings.

We are very proud to have been involved in this prestigious project. It was a good job to work on and the clean new canopy has dramatically improved the ambience of the market. Our clients Westway Development Trust were very pleased with the new canopy and the market traders and shoppers continue to be able to trade out of the rain!
