Recent Structure Testimonials

We’ve recently completed a couple of beautiful shade structures for Pulteney Grammar School and Gleeson College in South Australia. A large Barrel Vault Shade Structure was built over a basketball court at Pulteney Grammar School, to increase the usage of the court during all seasons, and a contemporary Walkway Membrane Structure was constructed at Gleeson College to protect students as they made their way to their classrooms.Here’s what the schools had to say about Weathersafe Shades:”I wish to send a note to the staff of Weathersafe Shades congratulating them on the great job in installing the shade structure to our Junior basketball court with the subsequent overwhelmingly positive response from the school community.The whole process of design, documentation, gaining council approval etc with Andy and Tim and the co-ordination and supervision of works with Dave was excellent, particulary in the tight time frame the school had open to it. The unexpected discovery of underground services upon construction as well as ensuring total safety to the work site while the school conducted a national conference of teachers was dealt in an extremely professional and timely manner.We have already been able to use the site for outdoor assemblies, dance and physical education in weather conditions which would have otherwise precluded such activities. Like most schools, education space is at a premium and the installation of this structure has allowed us more flexibility in the provision of teaching and meeting areas. An unexpected benefit will also be a sheltered outdoor cooking area for our major fund raising event this weekend…The Long Lunch!As a result of the transformation the shade has given to the basketball court, the school is now considering options for further installations to other play areas. Based on this experience, the ease of the whole process from start to finish has given me great confidence to invite Weathersafe Shades to be considered for future projects.”Kind regardsChris CartwrightProperty and Facilities ManagerPulteney Grammar School”We approached Weathersafe Shades to design and install a weatherproof structure between a new and existing building for the purpose of weather protection for our students.We had a design in mind and Andy and Tim worked with our concept, providing a design that was practical, aesthetically suited to the area, working within our budget requirements.During the preliminary, construction, and installation phases, the team at Weathersafe maintained a high level of communication with us, resulting in a structure that looks great and functions well for its purpose.Weathersafe Shades delivered on price, design and were helpful throughout the whole process. I recommend Weathersafe Shades for outdoor structures if you are looking for innovative structures and great service.”Regards,Paul OConnor| Business Manager | Gleeson College
