Carnfunnock Country Park, County Antrim

Project: Carnfunnock Country Park, County Antrim

A contractor contacted Able Canopies on behalf of Carnfunnock Country Park, Northern Ireland as they required a bespoke, colourful canopy that they could use for concerts and events.

The contractor submitted tender documents to Able Canopies to show what they proposed. Able Canopies completed a full site survey with the parks deputy manager and the contractor so they could assess the requirements in more detail.

Able Canopies submitted their quote for an array of shade sails. A month later they were informed that they had won the job. Plans were submitted to the council as planning permission was required. The colour, layout and design were all issues which had to be resolved through a second site survey.

A month on and planning permission was granted which meant Able Canopies could prepare the delivery and installation of the shade sails. The Shade Sails were installed in two phases: first of all the posts were installed and then the sails were attached and tensioned a week after.

The managers at Carnfunnock Country Park were very satisfied with the installation and the product
