Pompano Beach Parking Garage Gets Nautical Look with Birdair’s PTFE Membrane
Often called the “heart of the Gold Coast," Pompano Beach, Florida offers tourists the opportunity to relax on the beach, enjoy fine dining and experience terrific shopping. Soon, tourists and locals on the city’s eastern edge features a new parking structure enhancing the skyline thanks, in part, to Birdair’s PTFE membrane canopies.
The $19-million parking garage near the Pompano Fishing Pier will provide 609 parking spaces. The city developed the area into a retail center featuring restaurants, shops and a small hotel. The parking garage’s design is a evocative of its nautical surroundings—with 16 sail-shaped façade canopies by Birdair.
In addition to the 16 sail-shaped façade canopies, Birdair provided 15 identical rooftop fabric membrane units. All told, the total surface area of membrane is more than 27,000 square feet. Birdair’s scope of work included the design, fabrication, supply and installation of the PTFE membrane, structural steel, cables and clamping.
