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 2016. She explained that the School wanted to provide all-weather protection across an uncompleted outdoor area.

In our initial discussions with Carmel, we realized how urgently we had to turnaround the complete project, from the design to installation. The proposed outdoor area had been in planning for some time.  It was making fast progress and expected completion was set for early 2017. We had to have our COLA Canopy standing! The COLA Canopy is a shading and weather protection solution we offer.  It 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 informed the School of the work involved and the typical turn-around of 4 months but assured them we would do our best to expedite the process.

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

The project ran to schedule with completion on time. St Patrick’s School now greatly benefit from a multipurpose area protected from all weather conditions!
