Our Tension Structures division recently completed the installation of this tensile fabric cycle shelter canopy for Vinci Construction on the Science and Innovation Campus at Swansea University. Our team worked closely with Vinci to develop the final design, adapting one of our existing 18m x 8m triple conics to provide a more balanced aesthetic while reducing overall costs. All design, engineering, manufacture and installation of the steel support frame and was undertaken by ourselves in conjunction with our technical partners, and the fabric canopy was manufactured in-house at our Caldicot production facility. The programme from appointment to handover of the finished canopy was around four months.
