Building Together

Wates & Able Canopies

Building strong working relationships with contractors is something that we have always prided ourselves on. Being able to provide contractors with the high-specification design, materials and appearance they require that fits seamlessly with their standards is rewarding in itself.

We have worked with Wates for many years now with some large, impressive projects in the more recent years. Because you are such a great company to work with, we have created the newsletter ‘Building Together’ which is full of the jobs we’ve completed together along with all the information you need if you haven’t personally worked with us yet but would like to.

Recent Wates Case Study

School Canopies at Murray Park Primary School; a Wates Project
Wates Construction contacted us in October 2017 as they were tendering for the £7.8m development at Murray Park Community School in Mickleover, Derby. The project which was supported by SCAPE and funded by the ESFA, comprised of a brand-new building with a new reception area, 15 additional classrooms and office space.

When Wates first contacted us, they requested estimates for a number of Tarnhow timber canopies which are constructed from Glulam timber to provide shade and shelter around the new building. However, after being appointed the project by Derby City Council to carry out the works which were designed by Lungfish Architects, the canopies had been removed from the project to save on costs.
