Client: The Young Vic Theatre
Architect: Howarth Tompkins
Sub contractor: Crocodilla
Type of works: installation of Faber 1300 series awnings.
Faber Blinds removed the existing installation and incorporated the anemometer which retracts the awnings back in to their cassettes during high winds.
The company used the 1300 series which gave the correct width-to-draw ratio and was in line with the client aesthetic requirements. The structure and location of the building had to be considered. Faber worked closely with specialist fabrication company, Crocodilla, to fabricate special fixing plates that were built into the design solution to ensure a safe working installation.
