Shoreham Beach Shops

Design Brief

Aliport Commercial were first contacted in September 2014 about this project. Shoreham Beach Shops had an existing Canopy in place which was no longer fit for purpose and commissioned Aliport Commercial to remove this canopy and install a new Cantilever Canopy.

Site Conditions

Aliport Commercial undertook three site visits to fully understand the project, measure up and produce the designs for the new canopy. The shops were remaining open during the installation and therefore scaffolding was required due to the height and to keep the works off of the ground where the general public would be working. Additional risk assessments had to be undertaken prior to commencing with these works.

Aliport Solution

Aliport Commercial commenced works in March 2015 and over a 5 day duration removed the existing canopy and installed the new canopy. The Aluminium was powder-coated white. The Canopy was installed safely in line with time-scales and in accordance with Shoreham Beach Shops requirements with no impact on the general public or trading during the works
