St Patrick’s School

Signed contract within 9 days from the initial enquiry!

St Patrick’s Catholic School in Panmure Auckland, is a multi-cultural Year 1-8 school with approximately 220 students. Carmel Bullot the Principal lodged an enquiry with Shade Systems in November last year, she explained that the School was wanting to provide all-weather protection across an uncompleted outdoor area.

In our initial discussions with Carmel, we were made aware of the urgent nature in which we had to turnaround the complete project, from the design to installation. The proposed outdoor area had been in planning for some time and was now making fast progress and expected completion was set for early 2017. In which, in this time we had to have our COLA Canopy standing! The COLA Canopy is a shading and weather protection solution we offer that creates a Covered Outdoor Learning Area which blocks all harmful UV radiation yet does not block the light. It is also great in adverse weather conditions, making your outside area accessible in all weather.  We made it known to the School of the works involved and the typical turn-around of 4 months, but ensured we would do our best to expedite the process.

We arranged a design consultant to be on site within 2 days from the initial enquiry, and a formal proposal and final design was confirmed with Carmel 3 days later. She was understanding that approval was needed quickly to keep the momentum going, and she returned the signed contract within 9 days from the initial enquiry!

The project ran to schedule the desired outcome was reached. St Patrick’s School now greatly benefited from a multipurpose area protected from all-weather conditions!
