The location was in an internal courtyard. The only access we had were spiral staircase and small lift. As the awning was going to be positioned so high on the wall, we needed a scissor lift. But could only get one that was very small and could fit into the lift.
The awning and pelmet had to be manually lifted up the spiral staircase.
Once we got the awning, scissor lift and tools to site then the next lot of fun began.
The awning had to sit proud of vertical pipes, on one side, so special brackets were designed and manufactured with this in mind.
The mounting area was half old brick and half solid concrete. We mounted to the concrete on one side, but had to go through the brick and bolt through the steel framework on the other side.
Once the brackets were installed, we attached pelmet and flashing to the awning and used the scissor lift to get it into place, then we sealed it to the wall without penetration, all 5m high in the air.
