Here’s our top news stories from this edition:

In the Spotlight – The Tarnhow Dome

Specifying canopies for your projects is much easier when the canopy design is flexible can be adapted to suit your specific project. The Tarnhow Dome Free Standing Canopy is a perfect example of this. Because we design the canopy in-house and every canopy is made to order, we can adjust the design (subject to structural calculations and viability) to suit your exact requirements. This makes it very popular with Architects and Contractors. End users love it too, because the large timber beams create an aesthetic appeal that is hard to dislike.

Calculating the Ideal Installation

The construction sector is under more and more pressure to make environmentally friendly choices and with the governments Net Zero target for 2050, now is the time to make a start, if you haven’t already. Most construction canopies will already be making many eco-swaps including opting for recycled or recyclable materials, reusing materials onsite instead of buying new, and instead of disposing surplus supplies, keeping hold of them for future projects. Holding zoom meetings has also been popular as it saves travel and therefore emissions.

A Year of Planting Trees

It’s been a whole year since we introduced our tree planting initiative, and we don’t regret a single second of it.

Over the last 12 months, we have planted a total of 200 trees here in the UK and in Africa. The trees we have planted via The Tree Appeal have provided homes and food for thousands of species of birds, mammals and insects. Trees are the longest living organisms in the world and by planting them, we ensure the survival and maintenance of the eco system, which is required for not just animals and insects but for humans too.
