Auckland is well-known for its changeableweather, so protecting public transport usersfrom the elements was a high priority.Running right across Queen Elizabeth Square, from Customs St to Quay St, is a glazed, steel-framed canopy fabricated by Grayson Engineering.

The canopy framing is made of box-girder steel, cantilevered over the pavement. The company worked from engineering drawings to fabricate the steel frames, which were then erected on site.
