Bespoke Entrance Canopy – Geomarine

We were appointed to design, manufacture and install a bespoke entrance canopy with glass panel balustrade to a marina on-site in Jersey Harbour during April 2015.

The project involved taking concept sketches from the client and presenting a design solution that was both aesthetically pleasing and functional. The canopy had to incorporate automatic doors with a keyless and keypad entry system. Stainless steel roller bollards were positioned around the canopy to allow fuel hoses to be pulled through the open canopy doors for refuelling of the RNLI lifeboats.

The canopy was built and installed quickly and efficiently to a tight schedule in order to meet the opening of the marina.
