The design is a seamless stainless steel cantilevered frame with a 3/8 thick edge on all three sides. We were the structural engineers for the canopy and designed the canopy within a 1/16 edge tolerance by unhinging the stainless steel from the deflection of the carbon steel cantilevers. Some of our BIM model screen shots are shown.
