HOW DO YOU TAKE AN OFFICE BUILDING A MAKE IT LOOK BEAUTIFUL AND WELCOMING? THAT WAS WHAT MDT WAS TASKED WITH FOR THE GATEWAY TICKETING SYSTEMS BUILDING IN GILBERTSVILLE, PA. TO ACHIEVE THIS, WE PRODUCED EIGHT VERTICALLY OFFSET INVERTED TULIP UMBRELLAS WITH BRIGHT BLUE CANVASES. THESE STRUCTURES ALSO PROVIDE SUBSTANTIAL SUN AND RAIN PROTECTION STRIKING A WONDERFUL BALANCE BETWEEN AESTHETICS AND FUNCTIONALITY.
The tulip umbrellas installed are permanent structures that can withstand windspeeds of up to 40 mph. This allows them to be fixed and used year round with little worry of damage. Rainwater is channeled through the center mast to an underground drainage system. The canvas is made of acrylic fiber so as to withstand the elements and have the longest life possible.
