A Premier installation

PDR Construction approached us to tender for the entrance canopy works at a brand-new building they were constructing for the Premier Inn hotel chain in Haywards Heath, West Sussex. The canopy requested by the architect working alongside PDR Construction was of a similar specification to our Kensington Wall Mounted Entrance Canopy, so we therefore put this product forward in our tender. The Kensington Wall Mounted Entrance Canopy features a galvanised steel frame which can be powder coated in any RAL … Continue reading

Case Study: St John’s CE Primary School, Enfield

The Brief In August 2016, we were contacted about a new build and enclosed link walkway project at St John’s School in Enfield. We were invited on board at the point where the local planning department had declined the initial design for a space between two school buildings. We were tasked with providing the shelter required for the space and to use our Kensington Mono Pitch product (which most closely matched the planning requirement) to make it happen.

The Ashton … Continue reading

It can also provide weather protection to customers, visitors and staff, keeping them dry whilst waiting outside or whilst smoking. But it doesn’t stop there, the Melbury is so versatile that it is also perfect for use as a free standing canopy and an entrance canopy. The modish design … Continue reading

My Favourite Leicestershire Installation

We have just received images for an installation we completed in October and I just had to share them with you! We installed two Kensington Mono-Pitch Free Standing Canopies at two new retail units in Fosse Shopping Park in Leicester, Leicestershire. This is one of my favourite installations because I think the canopies fit in with the buildings perfectly! As you can see from the images, the shops are glass fronted buildings that have grey frames. The entrance canopies we … Continue reading
