Fairfield Inn & Suites
Novum was contracted to engineer, furnish and install the fan-shaped porte cochere and connecting walkway canopy. The porte cochere spaceframe structure elegantly tapers in depth as it approaches the cantilever tip and features a rear gutter for drainage. The canopies are clad with under slung, point supported glass panels. At each of the eight support columns, the glass is notched with aluminium water diverters to prevent leakage at the columns.
