As part of a £1,000.000 refurbishment project for the University of Essex, Shaded Nation was selected to design and install a bespoke shade sail structure to be sited above the decked student recreational area. This structure was successfully completed by our own installation team and incorporates significant footings to overcome the stepped area beneath the decking. Plant machinery was used in order to lift, manouvre and locate the columns into their final position. Extra care was taken on this installation to protect the galvanised and powdercoated finish on the posts. This project was completed in November 2011.
