J & J Carter were contracted to extend an existing canopy in the Silver Zone car park of Bristol Airport in order to create a covered area for bus passengers.

The new PVC canopy was 95m2 and tucked underneath the existing triple conic structure in order to collect any rainwater. The steel frame was a modular, yet complex tree design with an integral drainage system.
