Single Carport installed in Melksham, Wiltshire

Our customer, Steve, approached us with a requirement for a freestanding single Carport Canopy to cover and protect his vehicle. Steve already had an existing garage in place, but it was contaminated with asbestos. Steve had his garage removed by specialists and opted for a Carport, as it was the only logical option. Steve’s previous garage wasn’t very wide, therefore he had no place to store his vehicle.


The initial visit with Steve was to discuss the size of his carport, the leg positions and for us to check over the ground level. We used our BLK360 Leica scanner to determine the exact sizes for the carport. Our scanner captures a detailed scan of the desired area and transfers them into little points, we then open the scan into a point-cloud file and begin designing the carport for our customer.

Shortly after our survey and final quote, the deposit was paid and therefore the CAD drawings were then raised. Once the final revision had been signed off, Steve specified that he wanted the structure to be powder coated in Anthracite Grey (RAL 7016). Bronze polycarbonate was chosen for the roof, which therefore would allow light transmission into the carport area.

After the canopy had been manufactured to Steve’s requirements, our team organised the installation date to suit him and his schedule. The canopy installation got off to a swift start and our guys experienced no problems.  As Steve’s carport is fairly small in comparison to our other installations, the carport was fully installed in 1 day! The framework was secured, squared off and cemented in place by late afternoon, allowing our guys to fix the polycarbonate, clean up and leave site at the end of the working day. 

Once completed, our professional fitting team handed over to Steve, allowing him to take a final look around ensuring he is happy with his carport. Steve was ecstatic with his new carport canopy which provides him all year round protection for his vehicle, providing a low maintenance canopy as opposed to a timber pergola, which would require regular treatment/painting.
