Base were asked to design, manufacture and install the branch frame canopy including the supporting steel structure, fabric membrane and associated fittings.
This fabric canopy forms part of the refurbished entrance to the Multi Storey Car Park at Gatwick Airport. It not only provides protection for car park patrons when using the ticket machines but also serves as an attractive architectural feature to enhance the surroundings.
Appointed by BAA, Stride Treglowan undertook a radical makeover of the International Departures Lounge to create a more stimulating space and enhance the customers travel experience. We fabricated and installed the fabric, printed artwork and supporting steelwork to the Olympus Rings, internal ceiling kites, Matterhorn sculpture, information desk canopy and end bay banners.
This was a complex project with a number of different elements. It was installed during short night shifts. It went very well and was ready in time for the re-openeing of the departure lounge. The works have improved the internal space. BAA are very pleased with it and have reported increased sales in the shopping areas.
