Shelter Design Process
As an industry leader, SRP Shelter combines classic construction with modern design. Our SRP Certified Partners, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, and team of expert designers allows us to create the best picnic shelters to fit your needs.
1. Interview and Site Consultation
The design process begins and ends with you. One of our SRP Certified Partners will provide a free site consultation to discuss your shelter needs. They will review important aspects including:
- Shelter location
- Type of structure preferred
- Shape of shelter
- Ornamental options (duo-top, cupola, etc.)
- Any secondary design solutions (water collection, solar panels, LED up-lighting, heating elements, handrails, etc.)
2. Site Plan, Quote Proposal, and Engineering
A shelter design and quote proposal will be created based on your site's needs and wants. The proposal will include a detailed site plan, lead time, and itemized quote for the cost of the shelter, freight, and installation. Shelters can be designed and manufactured in one of three ways: standard, modified standard, or custom.
Superior's engineering department will designate how large and thick the columns, rafters, and hardware needs to be in creating the shelter in order to meet the required building code. Each local, state, or federal entity establishes their building code that must be met. Signed and sealed engineering is created to validate that this has been for the specific project location.
3. Shelter Manufacturing and Installation
Once manufactured and shipped, your SRP Certified Partner will schedule and complete the installation process of your new picnic pavilion.
