Spring is in the air and Fordingbridge is buzzing with activity.
We have a long history of collaborative working within education, so we appreciate how important it is to factor in out-of-term-time and school holiday builds when upgrading school and college facilities. Like our clients, we want our canopy products to serve as an enhancement to the school and, while we acknowledge that there is an element of disruption with a new project, we always try to be as accommodating as possible to minimise disturbance.
Out of the projects our installation team are completing, we are delighted that two are from repeat clients. One Swindon based school have approached us to mirror our canopy installation from last year, covering an under-utilised courtyard area allowing for year round use. This effectively creates a new room in the centre of the school; one which has fantastic natural light and is not overlooked from public roads. A similar principle to demonstrate how we can transform the space can be seen on our atrium projects here.
The same is also equally important in healthcare, another sector in which Fordingbridge are setting the standard thanks to close collaboration with NHS Trusts and contractors alike. Our unique insight into working within a live hospital environment, coupled with an eye for detail and appreciation for patient experience, leads to successful and timely projects nationwide. The beams above are currently being worked on downstairs in our factory to shortly be installed as part of the new entrance canopy for Poole Hospital, a project increasing the hospitals usable space through a collaboration between Fordingbridge, the NHS Trust and a leading modular building company.
Once the Easter break is complete, our installation teams will move back into other sectors, including theme parks and garden centres among others, enabling us to enhance their retail and customer experience offerings in a quieter period.
While our lead times are favourable compared to others, thanks in part to our in-house design and manufacture facilities, we are always planning ahead. Whether you are considering a canopy to increase usable space in your school, offer weather protection for guests or increase the revenue from your garden centre with a cost effective modification, we are here to help throughout the year. We pride ourselves in installing structures that are inspiring, functional and safe. Our installations are structurally calculated for your site, ensuring that your Fordingbridge canopy will serve you for many years.
