In Spring 2018, we were specified by IDP Architects for a free-standing canopy and a cycle shelter at Burntwood Retail Park in Staffordshire. The location was previously a factory site and was in the process of being renovated for various retail units including a new store for St. Giles Hospice.
Our products that were specified included the Kensington Mono-Pitch Free Standing Canopy which features a contemporary 200mm x 200mm x 6mm steel box section frame that is covered with a choice of 5mm solid polycarbonate or 10.8mm toughened glass. In this case, the architects specified the toughened glass and requested that the frame was powder coated in Anthracite Grey – RAL 7016 which is the most popular colour for this structure.
The cycle shelter that IDP Architects specified was the Easydale Cycle Shelter which may be a cost effective cycle shelter, yet it is stylish, contemporary and robust. It is perfect for use in well used areas including retail parks as well as schools, hospitals and leisure centres. It was also requested that the cycle shelter was powder coated in Anthracite Grey RAL 7016 to match the canopy and the rest of the unit’s exterior aesthetics.
In December 2018, RFC Construction notified us that they had won the tender and therefore placed the order with us for both the canopy and the shelter.
The canopies were installed earlier this year in January 2019 and the St. Giles Hospice store opened in August 2019.
