Quality, custom solutions for Architects, Developers and Commercial businesses

A successful architectural project provides users with a beautifully designed and highly functional outdoor space. We have been collaborating with architects, master planners, urban designers, specifiers, and builders for over 10 years to create quality shade solutions for commercial, industrial, and residential environments – be it existing, under construction or new. We know what regulations and compliances architects must adhere to. We understand tight budgets, short turnaround times and milestones under which they work. From the very first planning meeting to job completion, our expert team is hands-on to ensure our role in each project is efficient and excellent. It is preferred to get us involved in the early design intent to ensure the structures provide adequate shade and any potential issues with buildability are mitigated. We aim to make the entire project process from consulting to plan designs, approval management, engineering and more as easy as possible.
