Context

Craigard Investments appointed Queensbury Shelters to design, manufacture and install a totally bespoke entrance canopy with a single point clear toughened glass roof system.

Work undertaken

The project involved utilising the existing circular steel uprights and fitting a bespoke canopy to the posts to enhance the appearance of the recently refurbished office block. 

The canopy was manufactured and installed to fit on the existing steel uprights. This involved accurate measurement on site and manufacturing to tight tolerances to ensure the canopy met the client’s exacting requirements; an attractive entrance canopy to a modern office block.

Queensbury Shelters installed the canopy outside of normal working hours to minimise disruption to pedestrian traffic.

Product specification

  • Structural mild steel framework
  • Saint-Gobain point single monolithic bolted system
  • 19.5mm Stadip Securit clear toughened laminate HST
  • Stainless steel spider fittings
  • Steel roof supports

Outcome

The project was delivered on time to match the opening of the offices.

The canopy was well received by the customer and led to an order for a similar project on the same business park.
