ETFE canopy bus station Tilburg

Buitink Technology engineered, produced and installed an ETFE foil roof for the new bus station "Spoorlaan" in Tilburg (Holland).

A single layer tensed ETFE foil was chosen due to its self cleaning properties, durability, transparency, light diffusity and its extreme light weight.
