THE CURRENTLY FINISHED PROJECT FROM MDT "LESHOP.CH DRIVE" - CENTER FOR ONLINE FOOD PURCHASES AND COLLECTION MADE THE FIRST VISITORS ASTONISHED. DESIGNED BY THE ARCHITECTS OI, ENGINEERED, PRODUCED AND INSTALLED BY MDT. THIS NEW OUTDOOR PROJECT WITH ITS 36 ELLIPTICAL UMBRELLA CONSTRUCTIONS WITH A DIAMETER OF 5.10 M - 5.70 M, WHICH WERE ATTACHED AT THREE DIFFERENT HEIGHTS, ASSEMBLY OVERLAPPING ON THE MAST. THE MEMBRANE WAS PROVIDED WITH A PVC MATERIAL OF THE LATEST INNOVATION IN ORDER TO ENSURE A LONG SERVICE LIFE.
This special construction receives a functional added value by his integrated water drain system which enables to use the umbrella as a drainage which derives the water through the mast in the earth. At night there originates an interesting effect, the mast disappears almost in the darkness and wakes the feeling with the viewer that he stands before nothing but coloured air bubbles which just climb up in the sky. It concerns the same umbrella constructions by three different heights about 36 pieces. The single umbrella constructions exist of an ellipse like steel pipe ring with an approximate diameter of 5.10 m - supports 5.70 m on an external-concentric placed low ring. This low ring is fastened again external-concentric to a mast. The whole construction is connected upwards with wire ropes in the mast.

Below the steel pipe construction, a membrane from PVC-coated polyester fabric is braced. The mast is clamped in a ferro-concrete foundation. The water guidance occurs from the membrane in the low ring and inside-sided through the mast in the construction-sided available drainage system.
