More about this product

The University of West Georgia (UWG) is a comprehensive doctoral-granting university in Carrollton, Ga., 45 miles west of Atlanta. The college is built on 645 acres and has an enrollment of about 11,700 students.

The university was working in conjunction with Breedlove Planning, an architecture design firm out of Atlanta, to remodel an existing patio next to the student center. Overlooking the University of West Georgia’s Love Valley, the outdoor patio at the 131,000 square foot Campus Center wasn’t well suited for large gatherings, and the university was looking to create an area where events could be hosted and the space could be rented out to different groups.

In partnership with Superior Recreational Products Certified Partner, KorKat, Superior Shade provided them with a customized shade solution that was to go over a renovated concrete slab that would feature the school’s mascot. The shade solution includes five Hyperbolic Sails and two Triangular Sails of different sizes and heights. The sizes of the sail shades were specifically chosen to allow unobstructed views from the first and second story of the university’s student center. Superior provided mounting locations and electrical access panels for creating the conditions for wiring the speakers and lights that would be mounted to the columns, which was a must-have item on the university’s list. The frame and canopy colors blend well with the existing site colors, and seamlessly fit into their outdoor space.

Superior Shade manufactures and installs shade structures in a two process technique. First, the columns are fabricated and sent to the site for installation. Upon completion of installation, measurements are taken from column to column to ensure that the designed shade meets the reality of where the product has been installed. The project was installed during Christmas break with little interruption to the university or student body.

The university was very pleased by the final look of our custom shade design. Students, faculty, and staff can now enjoy the large shaded space for studying, dining, or hosting events.
