Kristin School were looking to make their netball court area a more usable space, as it wasn’t much use when the weather was miserable. The Junior School came up with the concept of covering the court to provide an outdoor learning and playing space with weather protection all year round, not only for rainy days but sun protection throughout the summer.
Nigel Wilkinson, Director of Business Services, contacted Shade Systems early November 2017 to provide a proposal for a COLA (Covered Outdoor Learning Area) over this court area. Following a short analysis period, they selected us as the preferred option and the ball was rolling only 3 weeks after the initial visit!
Taking care of the complete project and Shade Systems expertise is what appealed to Nigel. Shade Systems team maintained regular contact to keep Nigel and his team updated throughout the project process. We faced a new challenge, with overhead high transmission cables near the site which required additional permits and planning, however, the project still ran to the initial timeline confirmed and was completed on time 4 months later.
The kids love it and the space is used continually for many activities!
