Novum was contracted in a designer assist role to develop the solution, engineer, furnish and install the canopy for the Summit Park Glass Pavilion in Blue Ash, OH. The 128 ft long span of the canopy is achieved with two double layered HSS beams which run over the main V-shape columns. The double HSS members were welded together in our steel fabrication shop in three segments. Each segment was spliced with a hidden bolted connection to achieve a shop finish quality. The V-shape columns and branches help shorten the span of the main beam members and the longest spanning purlins for the canopy. On top of the steel is a multicolored glass layout that achieves stunning shadows on the ground as sun passes through the sky.
