Providing a covered area for prospective adopters to meet their new furry friends, the Hawaiian Humane Society Pavilion Modular Shade Structure brings a whole new meaning to animal shelter.
Located at the brand-new purpose-built Kosasa Family Campus, the custom features of this MakMax PH90 Pavilion Modular Shade Structure makes it ‘pawsitively’ clear that the Hawaiian Humane Society cares deeply for its four-legged friends.
With LED lighting, retractable blinds, and a clever vent in the apex of the canopy to allow heat and humidity to escape, this shade structure is truly barking up the right tree for comfort and convenience.
Commission by our local agents in Hawaii, Topical J’s, the client was originally looking for a series of overlapping coloured shade sails to cover an outdoor wash area for centre “promoting the human-animal bond and the humane treatment of all animals”.
Together, MakMax / Tropical J’s presented the Pavilion range of modular shade structures as the size and shape would be ideal for the outdoor areas. More importantly, the wind rating on the Pavilion Modular structure was more suitable to the tropical hurricane-zone location.
Based off a previously customised Pavilion hexagonal design, the PH90 9 metre shade structure has been installed with integrated electrical and plumbing supply. The client also requested the integration of Vent Pipes for the wash area as well as incorporating LED lighting and retractable blinds. The vent in the canopy is like a doggie door for heat and humidity to escape, making it a cool retreat for our furry friends
The colour of the fabric and steel topcoat for the Hawaiian Humane Society Pavilion were chosen specifically to suit the surrounding buildings.
With this shelter, the Hawaiian Humane Society has truly unleashed a new level of care for its adoptable pets. You can see the new hexagonal pavilion in the local Oahu new bulletin announcing the opening of the new Hawaiian Humane Society facility here:
