CIVIC CENTER TRANSIT STATION


The Civic Center Station is the main transportation hub for Denver’s Regional Transportation District (RTD). As part of a $31 million station revitalization project, Structurflex engineered, fabricated and installed three unique tensile membrane canopies made of PTFE-coated fiberglass. PTFE coated-fiberglass mesh on the underside of the canopies keeps birds from perching and nesting, while the PTFE coated-fiberglass membrane on the roof transforms into a glowing beacon of light at night. Structurflex provided pre-bid engineering design services and was subsequently chosen as the project vendor.

Our tensile structures and tensile facades  in Miami, Jacksonville, Houston, Fort Worth, Waco, and Atlanta did not sustain any damage or require any repair despite enduring events ranging […]
