Bespoke Awning Canopies for Leeds Restaurant

21 March 2013

Tensile Solutions designed, fabricated and installed a bespoke 14 bay cantilever awning canopy system at the Alchemist bar and restaurant (opening today!) as part of the new Trinity Shopping Centre development in Leeds.

Our client wanted us to create a high specification and stunning outdoor covered area on their balcony overlooking central Leeds.

The awning canopies not only had to look great but they have to perform all year round and are engineered to take everything the Leeds weather can throw at them! To add to the complexity of the project, the front of the balcony is curved and our structure had to mirror that curve. 

Fabricated with jet black steel and matching waterproof high tensile fabric canopies, the structure looks striking as it snakes around the glass facade of the building. All finishing details and tensioning systems were marine grade stainless steel which adds to the high specification look and feel of the awnings. 

Working right at the end of a high pressure build program, our installation was completed in just four days. A full day ahead of schedule!

Look out for some more photos of the awnings and the finished restaurant on our blog or follow the Alchemist restaurant on Facebook.

Phew! Anyone fancy a drink? I know a great place…..

Project Testimonial: 

"The overall service from Tensile Solutions and the standard of product was excellent!

The structure looks great and really sets off the balcony, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this company."
