Free-standing steel-framed canopy

As part of a major renovation of the outdoor space at The Hub, located at the heart of Farnborough Business Park in Surrey, we were commissioned to design and manufacture a canopy for the front of this iconic Art Deco building. The pergola had to be entirely free-standing - The Hub is a Listed Building, so no new feature can be physically attached to the façade – and supplied in kit form for on-site assembly. The metalwork also had to allow timber cross-sections to be added by a third-party supplier once the structure was in place. After a lengthy process, we arrived at a final design and method of manufacture. The canopy was made in sections: fully assembled, it was 7.6m (25 feet) long, 3.5m (11 feet) wide and 2.7m (9 feet) high; the metalwork alone weighed 1,000kg, with the timber, fitted by our client, adding significantly to the overall weight.
