The Basingstoke Hotel – Entrance Canopy
The new owners of this prestigious business class hotel asked us to come up with a design proposal which would provide maximum protection coupled with a minimalist/stylish look to greet residents as they pulled up outside the recently refurbished establishment.
The design chose was a dual cantilevered free standing canopy with only 2 nos. columns to enable unhindered access from 3 sides.
After consulting with our structural engineers, foundations were designed and steel sections approved, the roof was secured with stainless steel tie rods and the roof glazed with laminated “Patent” glazing.
The framework was polyester powder coated to match the new corporate colour scheme along with a flashing detail at the rear and RWG.
Installations took 2 days with groundworks by others.
- Shape: Mono-pitched Lean-to
- Support: Free Standing Cantilever
- Hoop Style: Single Box
- Cladding Type: Glass Canopies
- Locations: Basingstoke, Hampshire
Frequently Asked Questions
- Are your canopies usable all year in all weathers?
Yes unlike some solutions that need to be taken down in the winter or during high winds our canopies are designed to be useable all year round. The cladding materials as well as providing shade are also waterproof so that they can be used during wet weather.
- Will our concerns over children and staff safety be addressed prior to installation?
We have been working within schools for many years. All contractors are Clovis approved and CRB checked. Full risk assessments are carried out prior to starting installation taking into consideration your requirements and safety fencing is erected wherever needed at no additional charge.
