Another successful job and delighted client for the SBD team. The RM Hospital came to us with the issue of coverage from the harsh summer sun and protection from rain in an exposed area at the back of the Hospital lot located in Parkville, Victoria.
Many different designs were looked, reviewed and analysed but the best way to utilise the space cost effectively yet still serve purpose we settled on Commercial Grade Fixed Umbrellas. The structural drawings from the original build showed a large T Beam which ran parallel in the direction of the courtyard. By attaching to this thickened reinforced concrete beam we were able to eliminate any excavation or concrete works which cut costs. Each of the umbrellas is 5m x 5m square and have a clearance height of 2.3m above SSL. The canopies are Ferrari 502 PVC membrane.
The Fixed Commercial Umbrellas have proved to be successful shade solution which can be seen daily by both staff and patrons utilising the area daily.
