Waitakere College

Our very first COLA Canopy.
COMPLETED January 2008
LOCATION Auckland
FABRIC TYPE  Laserlite 2000 Opal Polycarbonate
FINISHING HD Galv with Enamel Finish

Shade Systems were contacted by Milne Project Management to design a canopy so that the Waitakere College courts could be used in all weather. With help from Smith & Henry Engineers, Shade Systems came up with a curved polycarbonate roof design, with a simple galvanised steel structure painted in school colours.

This canopy was also the largest project Shade Systems had undertaken and all team members were on-site to install it. Since then, the design of the COLA has changed slightly and the use of PVC roofing is far more common.

“The new large canopy supplied by Shade Systems provides a shaded/dry outdoor space for students in all weather… Working with Shade Systems team during construction was a pleasure as they understood the demands of the school system and worked with us to minimise disruption.”
