Entrance Canopy at The Forum

The Forum at the University of Hertfordshire College Lane Campus is undergoing a significant redevelopment to include new social facilities and expansion of the teaching space.  

The Main Contractor for the redevelopment project, Wilmot Dixon, asked us to design, supply and install an external fabric entrance canopy at The Forum to form part of this expansion.

Our Solution

Part of the brief was for the structure to be free-standing and not connected to the building. Our solution was an attractive bespoke L-shaped barrel-vaulted canopy that would achieve the required roof coverage area for the new outdoor space.

The Result

The result is an eye-catching structure expanding the space ready for the improved teaching and socialising experience at The Forum.
