Tensis provided design and detailing services as well as installation of the 85 sq.m seaside canopies.
The highly corrosive seaside environment and the strong south winds (up to 33m/sec) were two of the major design challenges.
Resin Anchor bolts (Spit Epomax) were drilled directly into the natural rock.
All materials were carried on site by local boat taxis!
