Taiyo Europe was contracted to design, fabricate and install the PVC membrane and the stainless steel cables for the new Champagne Bar Canopy, a 5th canopy identical to 4 others designed and built by TMC & Birdair back in 2001, surrounding the main stand of the horseracing track. Contracted by RW Armstrong & Sons Ltd., Taiyo Europe worked with Hopkins Architects to create the 300 square meters canopy fitted with Mehler VALMEX® FR 900 MEHATOP N – Type II PVC material.
