Public Realm

A well-designed place is more likely to be a well-used and respected space. And when it comes to living, working and socialising in our towns and cities, surroundings certainly come under scrutiny.

Broxap has extensive experience of working on community and stakeholder-led projects. Our teams liaise with designers, artists, architects, conservationists and expert consultants to deliver shelters and canopies that celebrate identity and enhance everyday life.

Our vast portfolio includes bringing to life public realm masterplans, streetscape makeovers, groundbreaking place-making proposals and the implementation of urban design.

Quality of life is not only a factor taken into consideration by residents but also business owners, tourists, developers and investors. And the public spaces which accommodate journeys through our communities are key to demonstrating accessibility, safety, cleanliness and social function.

The history and character of a place can be captured in a colour, shape or style. Its health and vitality can come across in the way a space is used, the behaviours of people and their relationship with the built environment.

From supporting sustainable transport revolutions, such as providing sleek, modern tram stop shelters, to transforming the streets into a public stage, a bespoke shelter or canopy from Broxap can bring enjoyment to a civic space.

Designed, manufacture and installed by our teams of professionals, our custom-made canopies and structures are created to a specific brief.


Every solution is designed to be compliant to the Euro-norms standards BS EN 1990, considering structural analysis, rules of building and the loads associated with wind action and snow.

This process delivers a structural design life of 50 years and a product that is strong and secure.  Manufactured using high quality, long-life, durable materials, our design philosophy is founded on care and attention to detail. Broxap is the single source solution to turning a concept and vision into a stable and safe reality.
