Bethell Construction approached us to help them develop a canopy scheme as part of their ongoing regeneration works with the Manchester Airport transformation team and the redevelopment of Terminal 2.
The Meet and Greet valet parking service was to be relocated to T2 and required Base to design, supply and install a new canopy. To reduce queuing times, the new structure required 3 lanes with internal cameras and scanners to scan car registrations as they arrived at the terminal.
We developed the detailed scheme with structural design engineers Fenton Holloway & steel fabricators Sheetfabs to include the primary steel structure, fabric interface extrusion system, 2 PVC roof panels, 4 wall panels, 2 gable end panels and a bird proofing system.
The client and Base are very pleased with the resulting robust, practical and attractive canopy to service the parking customers at the terminal.
