Whiteley Entrance Canopy

Description

Queensbury’s brief was to design and install a replacement glazed canopy for the entrance of an office building in Whiteley. The canopy was to provide a striking entrance feature to the offices.

The chosen design utilised a single point glazing system, with 19.5mm thick, clear, toughened, laminate glass with stainless steel fixings. The glazing was mounted on a fabricated mild steel frame, which was powder coated to match the framework of the building. Key to the success of the installation was the accuracy of the steelwork, to ensure the glazing could be fitted with minimum gaps between each pane.

The canopy was installed on site in less than two days, to minimise disruption around the entrance of the building.
