“Able Canopies Ltd, have undertaken jobs at two of the schools I help maintain for Somerset County Council. One job was at Bowlish Infants School - Shepton Mallet which involved the construction of a new polycarbonate mono-pitched children’s shelter attached to the main building, which was carried out on time and to the quotation cost in a professional manner and to a well constructed standard.

The other job was carried out on my recommendation to the head at Horrington Primary School - Near Wells but under the heads direct management. This was a similar polycarbonate mono-pitched children’s shelter but erected in a difficult location attached to the main building but surrounded on three sides by existing structure. Although I didn’t deal directly with Able Canopies regards this job, I did inspect following construction and again I am happy with the works undertaken from a construction / appearance point of view.

Both heads of these schools have expressed their satisfaction in respect of the customer service and the way the works were undertaken on site as well as the quality of the finished product provided by Able Canopies Ltd.
I look forward to future working opportunities with your company and won’t hesitate to both recommend your services to others and hopefully utilising them again myself.”
David Payne, Area Building Surveyor, Bristol

"We have had three canopies from Able over the last few years, and all are proving to be excellent investments. Assistance with planning is excellent and the work is always carried out safely and with the minimum of disruption by their construction team.  Their prices are extremely competitive and I would strongly recommend them to any school looking to enhance their outside play areas."
Wray Common School, Surrey

"The canopy we have had installed by your company has been an excellent addition to our Centre, the children are able to access our outside classroom nearly every day regardless of the weather. The UV protection within the canopy is fantastic as sun safety is paramount to our safe guarding procedures and policies. "
The Links Daycare Centre Ltd, Warwickshire
