To discuss your next project

"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."

Jeannie McLean, Business Manager - Waitakere College

Waitakere College

First COLA project for Shade Systems

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.

The Waitakere College job was a breakthrough for Shade Systems as this was the first COLA (Covered Outdoor Learning Area) project to be completed by the company. 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.
