Three Canopies for One Shopping Mall
What a great project: three canopies for one shopping mall, beneficial for both visitors and operators. Our scope of work: design, supply, and installation of three Texlon® ETFE canopies at the new build shopping mall QBig Bumi Serpong Damai (BSD) City in Tangerang, Indonesia.
Green and Sustainable Environment
The retail complex is filled with various shops, but it is famous for providing a generous open public space. It is equipped with leafy trees, a koi pond and water cascade, green tiered seating, and a huge open area for roller-skating, running, etc. Subsequently, the green concept means the use of eco-friendly building materials. This is how our Texlon® ETFE system fits in. Among other things, ETFE can be fully recycled, and our system helped to reach credits for different green building rating systems.
Canopies: Creating a Bright and Comfortable Outdoor Area
Further, the whole roof, including our Texlon® ETFE system, needed to take on tropical rain flows. A goal of our system, which was achieved, was to create a bright and comfortable outdoor area underneath the closed canopy surrounding the public space. And it needed to do this while providing enough shade. Therefore, the upper layer was printed with a special silver ink.
The three different canopies (smallest 137 m², middle 253 m², and largest 360 m²) provide shelter and light for all visitors under the canopy, above the promenade, and around the park.
