Our clients required an area that allowed them to load and unload trucks under a cover/canopy from their existing warehouse. The canopy was designed as a stand-alone structure and built adjacent to the existing warehouse, with no obvious connection point but making the two structures look like one and not an add-on. The concrete pad is falling to the outside to allow cleaning and any water to drain away. This is a simple but large canopy, clear span over 1500m2 of floor space, completely self-supported without the need for knee braces to hinder roof space.
We also extended the concrete pad beyond the canopy and installed the underground stormwater drainage to water storage tanks.
