Canopy systems are sometimes one of those building elements that gets taken for granted or overlooked, despite the important role they play in providing coverage, shading and reduced heat gain to a building. The integration of these systems with other exterior building systems also often ends up becoming an afterthought, leaving room for potential errors and less-than-ideal scenarios. In this program, we’ll discuss the importance of early consideration and integration of your canopy system in the design process while exploring the various benefits Whole Canopy Solutions provide.
