Entrance Canopy installed for Mitchell’s Shopping

Bob from Mitchell’s Shopping Centre contacted us with a requirement of a entrance canopy and infill piece at his site in Sutton Coldfield. Bob already knew that we were the best company for the job due to our affordable prices, high quality finish and our ability to build pretty much any type of canopy.


After suggesting various designs and providing Bob with some estimates that he was happy with, we sent our surveyor to site to take measurements and scans. Using our scans we are able to create a 3d visual for our customers, showcasing what their canopy would look like in the space if they were to go ahead. Our customer Bob loved the video, expressing to us that it was exactly what he had in mind.

After the survey:

Our final price was accepted, therefore Bob’s entrance canopy was added to our production line.  The CAD drawings produced by our engineers matched the design so we were happy to sign them off straight away. Bob asked for the structure of the entrance canopy to be powder coated in RAL 6009 Fir Green to match the cladding on the building. Clear polycarbonate was most appropriate for the roofing material as we wanted to ensure that the space underneath the canopy was light, bright and airy.  

Furthermore, Bob wanted an infill section to fill the gap above the canopy. We were able to provide Bob with exactly what he wanted. We attached the custom posts to the inside wall of the building and enclosed it with Clear 4mm Solid Polycarbonate.

Once a manufactured delivered date had been confirmed, the installation team arranged a suitable date for the canopy to be delivered and erected.

Finally, installation of the Entrance Canopy was fairly straightforward as the main structure was just a simple curved canopy, concreted into the ground. By the end of the first day, the canopy and infill structure was in place. The second day was spent installing the 4mm solid polycarbonate.

After a final wipe down and inspection with our customer, the job had been completed and expectations were met.
