“I can’t recommend your installation team high enough very impressive, thank you!”

Beaudesert Park School, Gloucestershire


“All companies asked for a quote they had the freedom to submit their best design for the budget/criteria. Able was the unanimous choice for the job. From sales/service and installers the attitude was professional and proficient.”

The Clarendon Academy, Wiltshire

“I write on behalf of the college to thank you, Robin and your colleagues for the installation of our Tarnhow Curved Timber Canopy. The canopy has received very favourable reviews from our students, staff and Governors and is proving to be a very attractive addition to the College Estate.

The process from start to finish proved to be very challenging, not least because of the issues concerning planning and building control. I appreciate the time and effort put in towards addressing these issues and the additional demands of our insurers. I would particularly wish to thank Sam and his colleagues for understanding the installation under very difficult circumstances and under which proved to be typical December weather conditions either side of Christmas.

Very best wishes for future projects and success for your company.”

Portsmouth College, Hampshire

“Great job!”
Claremont Special School, Bristol
