Wadi Laban, Saudi Arabia

This complex project with specialist fabric contractor Architen Landrell provides a cover to an existing swimming pool and entertainment complex.  The original fabric enclosure had collapsed and required replacement.

The new tensile structure was designed to sit on the existing foundations and comprises a PTFE coated fibreglass membrane suspended by a system of cables and masts. The anticlastic form generated provides a column free space measuring 42 metres by 33 metres.

David Dexter Associates was responsible for the full design and detailing of the project in conjunction with Tensys Ltd
