To provide continuity between hospital campus buildings and make the best use of what would otherwise have been dead space, Structurflex designed and fabricated a tensile mesh canopy that links the existing garage and the new medical facility.

The vibrant colors provide visual interest and reflect the hospital’s commitment to providing children and their families with hope. These screening systems are very economical and are easily incorporated with existing parking garages.
