Monkwick Infant School


The Willow Tree Day


Here are just some of the comments we have received from our customers:

"Able Canopies installed three wet weather shelters/canopies at our Nursery School in Willesden many years ago, and we were very impressed with their workmanship and professionalism at that time, so when the need arose for a canopy at the Main Entrance of our other Nursery School in Stonebridge, they were the first company I approached for a quote. From the first meeting, Able impressed both myself and our Architect with their knowledge of working in Schools, and the need to work around the needs of our children and parents. As a Capital Project, we needed to source at least three quotes from various companies, and choose the most competitive, that also met the specification, and could complete the project within a tight timeframe. Able Canopies were successful in this, largely due to the fact that they visited site at least twice prior to submitting their quote, took very careful measurements of the area, and produced detailed calculations and drawings for the Planning Dept. Once on site, the installers themselves were professional, friendly, and extremely tidy, taking care to ensure that the work area was suitable for Premises Staff to enter and leave the building safely. We are absolutely delighted with our new canopy - it has been done so carefully, that it looks like it is part of the original building - our Nursery in Stonebridge is an iconic building, that has won various awards, including the RlBA award for architecture, so the canopy installed had to add to the overall look of the building, and not 'stick out like a sore thumb'. I would recommend Able Canopies to any school or business, and while they will not necessarily provide the cheapest quote, they will definitely provide an end product that exceeds your expectations. Thank you!"

St Nicholas Primary School - Oxford, Oxfordshire - View Installation


"We started our project of having a new shelter installed at our Guiding Centre back in 2010. Since our initial enquiry Able Canopies have stuck with us all the way. We have had a few ups and downs along the way (with regards to needing planning, raising funds and having a tree nearby which is protected etc.), and Able Canopies have always been there to answer our enquiries. There were moments when we thought we would never be able to have our shelter.

Able Canopies always kept in touch with us to see how we were getting on with the project, and were not once pushy in any way. We really would like to thank Paul Townsend and his team in particular. They were always at the end of the telephone, were really understanding, motivating us to keep going.

We now have our dream shelter which is better looking than we ever thought, is fit for purpose and fits in really well with the surrounding environment. We have had lots of positive comments about it and we are really proud of it.

A Huge Thank-you to Able Canopies for our amazing new shelter for mobility scooters and bicycles, and for being such a wonderful team."

"Fantastic product, great service. Installers were a credit to your company. The customer service from Able Canopies was excellent. They were very helpful and efficient. We were very happy with how quickly we had the canopies installed.

We are an ever growing school and the new canopy provides us with a space for outdoor learning and play, come rain or shine! The parents are delighted to have a dry area to wait for their children at the end of the day if the weather is unsettled! Overall, the canopies are an excellent addition to the school."

In July this year we are planning to add a further 6m x 6m structure which will give us an outdoor restaurant area for 60-70 diners."
