Novum was approached by the general contractor to design, furnish and install two exterior canopies, two steel trellises and two facade walls. The facades are comprised of simple, vertical steel pipe columns which support and brace point supported glass. At the top of each facade is a decorative painted trellis consisting of steel HSS sections. For the canopies, Novum recommended and installed ETFE cladding, an economic architectural membrane material known for its lightweight and self-cleaning properties.
