We designed this 9m x 9m hypar canopy structure specifically for this disused space at a Bristol Academy.

The school wanted to create more outdoor space for teaching activities and recreation. Our solution was to design and install a cantilevered structure - we used the cantilever principle to remove the supporting leg from the middle of the space, thus freeing up the entire area.

The previously disused courtyard was completely refurbished and a rubberised flooring was put in. Our installation took two days - bolting down to the existing foundations that the client had installed based upon our drawings.
