Eide Industries, Inc. completed the construction of this innovatively designed hanging long dome entrance canopy for the Stanford Vision Center in Palo Alto, California. DPR Constructions, Inc. selected Eide to assist with the design refinement and to provide high level fabricating and installation expertise to the project. This fabric structure is a modified long dome canopy designed to hang from supported I-Beams. Attention to small design details, such as specifying Sheerfill V PTFE Fabric to cover the powder coated painted frame, underside mounting to the existing building, and recessed fastening bolts transforms an ordinary structure to a work of art. Working closely with the general contractor and complying with the architect’s artistic requirements and recommendations, Eide Industries, Inc. successfully completed this bold and functional canopy system on time to meet and exceed the client’s expectations.
