Installed as part of temporary works while the reception area is being redesigned, TensileFabric were able to help to deal with a solar problem at the reception by installing two of our hypar canopies. The hypars provide effective shade.

The two same-sized units were supported from unistrut - already in place to support light fittings - that were reinforced with additional bridle cables.

Fitted out of normal working hours, the complete installation took around two hours.
