Fordingbridge are proud to have delivered the substantial plant area canopy for the newly constructed Snowhill site for Haskins Garden Centres.
The hybrid structure combines steel columns and beams with striking glulaminated timber arches, providing in excess of 3,000sqm of covered retail space at the West Sussex store.
The canopy is designed to provide an almost entirely covered courtyard for the business, leaving only the central section and perimeter open to the elements. The roofing, clad with our exclusive Opal 60 fabric, also features a bespoke ‘top-hat’ section, providing permanent additional ventilation throughout the space. This means the canopy is 100% waterproof, while still allowing generous amounts of natural light to aid the retail environment.
As with all of our structures, the timber used is FSC or PEFC certified, ensuring our supply chain remains ethical and sustainable.
