Garden Terrace & Walkway Canopy

Trepassey care home had been undergoing extensive redevelopment involving a series of extensions and garden terraces. So our client approached us to provide a barrel-vault canopy to the new landscaped garden. The canopy was to double as a covered seating area for the residents to enjoy the attractive surroundings and to provide a 52m door to door sheltered walkway to protect from the elements.

Our Solution

A continuous series of tensile PVC fabric canopies comprising 15 bays, supporting steel masts and rolled arches. Also with PPC aluminium extrusions and electro-polished s/s membrane plates. This allowed us to achieve the curvature required to fit the garden shape and crescent walkway path accurately.  

The Results

A structure like this in an elevated position overlooking The Wirral will withstand inclement weather conditions and provide a robust shelter and shade. Because of this the residents will be able to spend more time outside for fresh air and safe distanced socialising.
