Slide “Whats amazing about having this resource for our kids is that they can use it 24/7. They can use it in the pouring rain and searing heat, and that’s going to be an amazing ability for them to be able to do sports in here." Iain Taylor, Principal - Manurewa Intermediate School Slide "Just a short note to say the canopy was unaffected by the storm despite trees at the school giving way left right and centre and the school closing for 2 days! All credit to your design and construction team! Thanks again."
Paula Vitali - PTA Member, St Joseph's Catholic School Takapuna
Slide "We happily recommend Shade Systems as an innovative and progressive company to work with, who understood our requirements from the outset and delivered exactly as their proposal, on time and as per quotation." Ross MacKenzie, Managing Director - Hansells Foods Group Slide "The construction process itself was very well-managed, and as a result the COLA structure just fits so well." John Robinson, Principal - Everglade School Slide "Shade Systems a company no problem to have working on a very busy college site. The senior staff and construction staff bend over backwards to make the least impact on the daily running of the College. The finished product a canopy over a multi turf sports surface has been in full daily use since completion." Tim Plank, Property Manager - Otumoetai College
