Demountable Tensile Fabric Grandstand Canopy

The client required a grandstand tensile fabric canopy and wall system to cover to the seating area, however the Royal Dublin Society stadium frequently hosts concerts and events for which the central section of the existing grandstand is removed to allow a stage to be erected in its place. This meant the fabric canopy would also require a removable central section to follow suit.

Our Solution

Fabric structures are very versatile and in this case proved a good solution for the removable section, whilst also being an attractive way to provide the much needed functional seating cover. We designed and fabricated the fabric roof canopy, side cheeks and rear walls.

Results

The project was completed on time and on budget and fabric canopy is credit to all involved.

Fabric Clad Space Frame Roof

This tensile fabric cladding system is designed to cover the existing space frame roof to the Park West Railway Station. Having not long completed an identical tensile structure at nearby Adamstown Railway station, our clients Mero and Irish Rail were very pleased with the success of that structure and happy for this second fabric clad roof to go ahead.

Our Solution

Using fabric as cladding in this way allows far more natural light into the building than more traditional alternatives and creates a very pleasant station environment.

Retail Fabric Cone Canopies

Architects Douglas Wallace were keen to provide a keynote feature for the brand new Fresh retail stores being launched in Dublin. 

Our Solution

We designed, manufactured and installed the fabric cones, supporting steel frame and associated fittings. Similar feature tensile canopies were installed in a further two retail stores in the city.

Results

The tensile fabric cones create an elegant cafe culture feel to this unique food store, setting them apart from the competition. By uplighting the fabric canopies a soft reflected light illuminates the produce as well as providing visibility from the street.

Tensile Fabric Cladding System

To devise a fabric cladding system for our clients space frame roof to the new Adamstown railway station. Fabric cladding is a great choice for this impressive and innovative structure because it allows more light into the interior space than traditional cladding materials. 

Our Solution

We designed, manufactured and installed the fabric cladding to the existing steel space frame. 

Results

Patrick Reilly, Resident Engineer of Iarnrod Eireann, recently commented on our outstandingly safe working practices on site:

“Adamstown was executed with professionalism and the safe working practices shown by these operatives was a credit not only to themselves but also to your company. It is not often that one can be at ease, especially when working next to live operational railways, but the confidence installed in me by the operatives carrying out this job was welcomed – the way in which they ensured at all times the safety of the traveling public was again to be commended.”

Terminal 2 Temporary Works Screens

Having approached Base structures about a similar scheme at the outset of the works, Dublin Airport came back to us in October 2008 with a proposal to close off the southern elevation of the building with two and a half thousand square metres of weatherproof fabric. 

Our Solution

After receiving the brief Base set about designing, manufacturing and installing this completely bespoke and fully engineered solution in less then seven weeks, with the site install time barely exceeding two of these. 

The results

This speed of service, combined with the durability, weatherproofing and reliability of the installed scheme enabled the construction team to recover time on the €609m project and made a significant contribution towards completion on the May 2010 deadline.

Project Outline

Architects LOM designed four large tensile fabric ‘shards’ forming a sculptural interpretation of the bank’s red logo for the atrium of their Dublin head office in Grand Canal Square. 

Our Solution

In collaboration with Stretch Ceilings UK, Base coordinated the design of all the steel rafts as well as the fabrication and suspension of the largest hanging shard. The dramatic shapes which dominate the space were achieved with our unique combination of design, manufacture and rope access installation skills.
