Task:

Provide a historically accurate storefront awning that was both durable and retractable with a motorized operation.

 BEFORE

Challenges:

Historical storefront features would need to remain and be unchanged by the awning installation. Awnings would need to be operable to the individual tenants as well as a master controller for the property owner.


Solution:

Design custom brackets that would allow us to install the awnings without impacting historical building elements. Provide motorized operation with multiple remote controls to meet client needs.
