Kent County Council reached out to Able Canopies as they were in need of several shade and shelter options for a new bus hub in Gravesend. They had seen our previous installation of two bespoke Kensington Solar Canopies at Bournemouth University which was also put to use as bus shelters.

Whilst the canopies at Bournemouth University featured solar panels, Kent County Council were looking for polycarbonate roof panels, with the same striking design of the Kensington Dual-Pitch Free Standing Canopy. So, Last month in September 2021, we begun installing the first phase which included two Kensington Dual-Pitch Free Standing Canopies and then in November, we will return to site to complete phase two which includes the installation of a third and final Kensington Dual-Pitch Free Standing Canopy.

This is a big job on a construction site within a busy town centre, by the town’s train station. However, our installation teams are well experienced in working on busy construction sites and followed all sites requirements with no problems as expected.

Keep an eye out in late November when we will be sharing completed photos of the whole project however, here’s a few sneak peek photos of phase one in progress for now.
