My Favourite Croydon Installation so far…..

My Favourite Croydon Installation so far…..

Hospital Awning - Commercial AwningMy favourite installation for Croydon is a little different to my other favourite installations. Usually my favourite installations are big jobs that either had large canopies or lots of canopies installed as these make big differences to the grounds that they are installed on. However, this time – my favourite installation in Croydon so far has to be Croydon University Hospital.

In April 2012, one of my installation teams installed a 6m x 3.6m Palladio Commercial Awning in the outdoor play area for the Dolphin (Children’s) Unit.

Not only does the awning fit in perfectly in the area which it was installed in, (the photos really do not give it justice) it has also made such a difference to the patients and the hospital staff are really impressed with their new awning.

Hospital Awning - Commercial AwningThe awning has made it possible for their young patients including those unable to leave their beds to play outside and enjoy some fresh air. Parents can also now spend more time with their children whilst they play outside knowing they are protected from the sun. It’s always so rewarding knowing that my products make such a difference, especially to young children that wouldn’t be able to enjoy the outdoors without the use of a canopy.

Victoria Hiil, The senior play assistant for the Dolphin ward said these kind words about our service and explains how the awning has enhanced their ward.

“Very efficient during the installation. No fuss – brilliant work. Delighted to have the canopy. It will be perfect for the children playing outside when the weather is hot. It will be wonderful not having to move the sand and water tray to shaded areas in the play area to keep them from getting too hot (the children!). Parents can spend more time with their children knowing they can sit in the shade watching them play quite happily. Ideal for children on traction not able to get off beds, they can be transported on their beds outside under the shade – perfect!! Many thanks.”
