How We Can Help Contractors

How We Can Help Contractors

At Able Canopies Limited, we take pride in our longstanding partnerships with prominent Contracting Companies, collaborating to deliver exceptional shade and shelter solutions across the United Kingdom. With our extensive expertise in canopy and shelter structures, we naturally emerge as the preferred choice for Main Contracting firms seeking excellence in their projects.

Our primary objective is to enhance value for our clients, thereby elevating the experience for their own customers. We achieve this by diligently exploring cost-saving opportunities through value-engineered design concepts.

One of our noteworthy achievements includes a substantial contract completed for Morgan Sindall. Commissioned to undertake a £18.8 million refurbishment of Lexden Springs School in Colchester, Essex, Morgan Sindall entrusted us to supply and install 12 bespoke canopies, including two waterproof shade sails and a timber cycle shelter.

These structures not only unified the aesthetic of the renovated site but also provided convenient, covered access to various areas for pupils with special educational needs and their staff.

The design from the architects required the Coniston canopies to have sprinklers fitted (by another contractor) to the underside of the canopy roofs, we therefore provided structural calculations which included this modification for the loading capabilities. Despite the intricacies and challenges presented by the project, we demonstrated our commitment to excellence by completing the installations within the stipulated timelines and maintaining an exceptionally high standard of craftsmanship.

Our collaboration extends to reputable contractors such as Morgan Sindall, Kier, Wates Group, Willmott Dixon and more. Together, we have successfully installed both standard and bespoke canopy structures at numerous locations across the UK, further underscoring our dedication to delivering quality solutions.
