Engine Rooms, Birchwood Park

Bespoke 14m x 14m Hypar

Tensile Fabric Structures were approached by DV8 Designs to design and install a bespoke tensile canopy for The Engine Rooms at Birchwood Park.

Sitting in a stunning location with elevated views across the lake, a striking canopy was needed to provide covered space for eating, greeting and meeting at this prestigious business park near Warrington.

An elegant hypar was chosen as the preferred design, with a large 14m x 14m span supported at just four points. The front of the canopy was also extended so it cantilevered over the steps. Lighting was integrated into the design as well as a perimeter water capture and drainage system.

We also arranged the foundations and a rather tricky design to the steps whilst the client re-landscaped the area and added new furniture. Special thanks must go to Artura for their engineering and design work on this ‘more challenging than it appears’ project!
