In 2015 Parks Canada undertook renovations as part of a rejuvenation project at Point Pelee Information Centre, making improvements to the inside of the Centre and the outside seating area. Their seating area also serves as the waiting area for their transportation system and upgrading this area was a large part of revitalizing their outdoor space.

The largest engineering consideration for this project was the water table; Point Pelee is the southernmost tip of Canada and sits on Lake Erie. As opposed to pier footings, which are used on most structures, TensArch used ballast footings due to the inability to excavate below normal levels. These engineering considerations ensure the life of the Shade Structure and their durability in all weather conditions.

As well as Point Pelee, TensArch has worked with Parks Canada on other projects and we enjoy working closely with their engineers, soil testers and staff to ensure our work is non-evasive while ensuring a structurally sound product that will last for many years.
