Description BOURG LA REINE

This project consists in the refurbishment of Bourg La Reine bus station, incorporating 4 independent canopies to protect travellers from inclement weather.

Each of the 4 canopies is composed of 2 symmetrical single-laminate ETFE membranes, joined by their axis of symmetry. The 4 canopies are in the central square, around which the buses park. They are arranged overlapping each other to create a waiting area for passengers over 25 m long.

This configuration covers a total space of 148 m².

Technical Base

This project was carried out with a single-laminate ETFE system, 250 microns thick, screen printed with a design of 16 mm diameter aluminium-coloured dots on 70% of the surface.

Each of the ETFE membranes is reinforced by stainless steel cables, and is fixed to the metal support structure across a rectangular section aluminium profile which hides the membrane tensioning system in its interior.

In the central part of each canopy, which is both its lowest point and its axis of symmetry, stainless steel flashings and a sealing membrane have been installed, integrated into the profiling, which convey the rainwater into a central channel.
