Our first consultations on this project had come about shortly before the first Covid lockdown and subsequently progressed following as best possible during the course of over a year.
As the build was just across the Auckland boundary of Mangawhai we could not access the site for the majority of the build and alterations. We overcame this by regularly meeting with everyone involved via online conference calls and continually discussing progress with the clients.
Following our initial trial installation the clients were concerned but the engineers remade the mounting plates and we finally managed to install the awnings when the Auckland lockdown was lifted.
Much to everyones delight all the awnings fit correctly and the new mounting plates were much stronger with no flexion.
The awnings complimented the homes aesthetics very well and the minimal design of the cassettes and colour matching of paintwork kept in keeping with the homes look.
The clients were extremely happy with the look of the awnings and the extensive shade they created to the outdoor areas. Internally the heat build up had been reduced dramatically and glare and u.v could be easily controlled.
The awnings cassette coverings coupled with automation and sensors gave the clients the confidence that their investment was protected and worked safely as well as efficiently.
