Outdoor Construction Canopy Installed in Dudley

Our customer Steve from Dudley college approached us with a requirement for an outdoor construction canopy. Steve wanted it to be installed at the college construction centre in order to protect a mortar mixer from the elements.

Outdoor construction canopy with full structural calculations

First of all, Steve made an inquiry with us due to the durability and strength of our steel canopies. The strength of the canopy was important since it was to be installed on a construction site where it may be susceptible to damage. In addition, each outdoor canopy we install comes with full structural calculations. As a result, Steve knew that the outdoor construction canopy would be structurally sound.

Steve signed off the final drawings following our site survey and then specified that he wanted the structure to feature a hot dip galvanised and powder coated finish to match the surrounding architecture. Furthermore, Steve chose clear polycarbonate for the roof glazing. This is because it allows the most amount of light transmission which was necessary due to employees operating the mortar mixer whilst stood under the canopy.

Once a manufactured date had been confirmed, the installation team arranged a suitable date for the outdoor construction canopy to be delivered to site and erected.

The simplicity of the design made it very simple to install and there were no restrictions. In conclusion, the installation was straightforward, in part due to the space available but also because the posts could be bolted to a concrete pad using footplates. The Kappion fitting worked professionally and with time in mind which resulted in the canopy framework being erected in just one day.

Once installation was finally finished, we had a final wipe down and hand over of the outdoor canopy with Steve, who was extremely happy with the finished product.
