Visitors to Haddad Riverfront Park in Charleston, West Virginia, are now greeted by three fiberglass fabric membrane roof and facade cladding systems from Birdair.
The systems include a retractable fabric canopy over the park’s existing seating area, a steel and fabric roof for the park’s new permanent Schoenbaum Stage and a canopy covering a new pavilion overlooking the Kanawha River. As the project’s design-build roofing subcontractor, Birdair constructed the TiO2-coated PTFE fabric membrane canopies.
The new Schoenbaum Stage is the primary venue for the West Virginia Symphony and hosts various other forms of entertainment as well. Spectators are covered by a 35-foot by 80-foot retractable fabric panel that retracts to allow visitors to view fireworks displays during the City of Charleston’s Friday night concert series.
The project is funded by a grant from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). SBA’s funding should not be construed as an endorsement of products, opinions or services. All SBA-funded projects are extended to the public on a nondiscriminatory basis.
