  • Project: Loughborough University, Canopy
  • Description: Covered Dining Tensile Fabric Structure
  • Client: Loughborough University
  • Location: Loughborough
  • Applications: Playground Dining Meeting Point Sunshade Canopy
  • Ref: 2399

As well as the Virgo canopy, we were also tasked with designing a new bespoke tensile fabric structure for another area of the creative arts campus. 

The university wanted to bring life into a previously disused and neglected area. With the brief to cover as much area whist keeping the costs down, we designed a structure that required a single foundation and fixed to the existing building.

Both canopies were installed over 1 week by 3 experienced riggers.

The students now have an outside covered space where they can hang out between lectures - keeping them shaded in the summer sun and dry on all those wetter days.
