THE CHALLENGE – PROVIDE CUSTOMER SHELTER WITHOUT LIMITING PLANT GROWTH
Palmers Garden Centre has been selling plants and garden supplies to the East Auckland, New Zealand community since 1985. In 1990, the center added a Structurflex tension membrane roof to cover weather-sensitive plants and provide a pleasant shopping environment for customers. The roof served Palmers admirably for 20 years. Twenty years later, working within time, budget and weather restrictions, Structurflex was given the task of designing, fabricating and installing a replacement membrane roof.
OUR SOLUTION – PLANT-FRIENDLY FABRIC WITH A LONGER LIFE EXPECTANCY
Building on the trust of an existing relationship, Structurflex recommended a replacement roof made with polyester-reinforced Ferrari 1002S – a fabric that didn’t exist when we built the original membrane roof in 1990. The new fabric has greater transparency, which has improved the customer experience at the garden center. It also comes with a lifespan that should considerably exceed the previous roof’s 20-year term of duty. Palmers management are highly satisfied with the result, which was achieved without major disruption to the garden center’s business.
