Big Span Structures, a leader in concept-to-completion solutions for signature lightweight tensile membrane structures, has completed work on a new tensile membrane façade system for the Oursiman Honda parking garage in Bethesda, Md. Responsible for the design, engineering, fabrication and installation of the expanded 11,000 square foot PVC membrane system, Big Span’s mesh façade system features an unmistakable digital printed blue colored sky with silhouette birds for a unique aesthetic. The chosen and specified attachment method was a grommet and lacing detail.
Big Span’s PVC mesh equipped the car dealership’s garage with a tensile fabric façade to provide both protection from the environment and effective ventilation. Big Span partnered with architectural firm Page Southerland Page, Inc., and Utica Contracting on the three-story garage to complete the project at the end of 2019.
