Triangle Canopy at Union Square Shopping Centre, Aberdeen
Falco have recently been working closely with the architects BDP’s Glasgow Office to provide a solution to their canopy requirements at the second largest shopping centre in Scotland - the new Union Square development in Aberdeen. They were looking for a design led solution to provide multiple use shelters to house cycle parking, ticket machines and also to act as a public weather shelter. BDP chose Falco’s Triangle canopy because of its style, versatility and robust manufacture.
Canopy for the second largest shopping centre
The Union Square Aberdeen shopping centre has become the second largest shopping centre in Scotland and Falco’s own highly skilled installers worked to very tight deadlines to ensure completion ready for the opening of the shopping centre. Falco installed the Triangle design canopies with glass roof and rear walls for added light to meet the requirements of the client. Falco also supplied Triangle-30 stands in stainless steel underneath the Triangle canopies as well as installing Cima Litter bins from our partners, City Design.
Canopies for ticket machines
The contract also included the supply of 2 Mini Spok shelters to house existing ticket machines on the side of the main shopping centre building. The opening of the shopping centre proved a great success when 60,000 people arrived for the first day.
More about the Triangle canopy
The Triangle canopy brings the familiar design led ‘triangle’ theme to the fore and uses a range of materials including stainless steel and powder coated galvanised steel with roof cladding options of aluzinc or safety glass. The aesthetic strengths of the design of the Triangle canopy are matched by high functionality. The canopy incorporates integrated gutters with rainwater being channelled inside the structure and discharged at ground level. Additionally, lighting can be incorporated into the central panel of the Triangle canopy with opaque acrylic covering.
