Product: The Coniston Wall Mounted Canopy
Size:15m x 1.7m extending to 2.6m
Canopy Frame Colour: Hipca White RAL 9910
Installation Date: July 2020
Contractor: GD Construction
In February 2020, we were approached by GD Construction who we have worked with in the past; they were working on a project at Ickenham Clinic in Uxbridge, London for Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust. The clinic had an existing canopy which was supplied by a different supplier, yet it had received extensive wind damage and they were therefore looking to replace it.
Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust were keen to replace the canopy promptly, so we needed to supply the estimated costs swiftly.
Upon receiving images of the area and dimensions required, we were able to send a full estimate to GD Construction which they were happy with. We supplied them with costs to remove the existing structure and replace it with our popular Coniston Wall Mounted Canopy.
Because the Coniston is a wall mounted structure, it had a similar appearance to their previous canopy, yet it features a strong and robust construction. The frame is manufactured completely from aluminium which is naturally rust resistant and the roof is covered with 35mm structured polycarbonate panels which are vandal and shatter resistant and provide high UV protection to those who stand or sit under the canopy. The roof panels also feature a UV coating which is coextruded onto them during the manufacturing process to stop the panels from yellowing over time due to sun exposure.
All parties involved agreed that the Coniston was the perfect shade and shelter solution. We arranged a pre-site meeting to go through the finer details and to allow us to supply a firm quotation so that an order could be officially raised.
Given that the end user is an NHS establishment, we offered to install the canopy during weekends to cause minimal disruption however, we were advised that a different trust uses the facility on Saturdays and a midweek installation was much preferred.
The order was placed in May 2020 however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NHS trust requested to put the job on hold until they were happy to proceed.
Once social distancing restrictions were relaxed, the contractor touched base and booked the installation for July 2020.
The canopy was installed over two days as scheduled and there were no problems along the way. The clinic can now make use of their new canopy, which is not only safe to use, but is also larger than their previous structure and features a full 10 year guarantee for complete peace of mind.
The canopy also comes in extremely handy for the clinic as their patients can wait for their appointments outside whilst adhering to social distancing measures and keeping protected from the weather at the same time.
