Marassi Beach Resort, Egypt 

APPLICATION OF PROJECT:

Shading systems: The Marassi beach Clubhouse, resort villas, and spas required a large range of shading systems.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Marassi is a Mediterranean‐styled resort development sprawling across 1,544 acres of pristine waterfront. Situated along the magical shores of Sidi Abdul Rahman bay, the resort is close to Alexandria and a few miles away from the historic city of El Alamein.

The Marassi beach Clubhouse, resort villas, and spas required a large range of shading systems. The main circular bar area was covered using a multi‐layered shade sail system with one central connection post. Selected outdoor seating areas were also shaded using a series of smaller hypar‐shade sails grouped into multiple rectangular configurations. The finished design incorporates a total of 66 posts, 2 diamond shaped sails, 4 triangular sails and 21 rectangular hypar sails.

ITE College West, Singapore 

APPLICATION OF PROJECT:

Canopy shade structure: The architectural PTFE membrane canopy provides weather protection for an outdoor events plaza and exterior walkway.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

A truly stunning piece of fabric architecture was created with this stunning lightweight membrane roof at ITE College (West) in Singapore. Supported only by a complex cable system and large steel wall plates bolted to 4 different buildings, the 3000m2 PTFE Canopy provides shelter to the Events Plaza and exterior walkways below spanning an incredible 75m span in one direction and 45m in the other.

The project presented many extreme challenges that were overcome through innovative thinking and design. The 3000m2 canopy was hoisted into position from ground level and secured in just 16 hrs using 10 electric chain hoists, in conjunction with a 200T mobile crane.

The completed saddle shaped‐membrane structure adds a beautiful yet practical architectural focal point within the development and exceeded the expectations of both the client and the main contractor.
