shelters •  gazebos •  pavilions •  trellises

In addition to providing protection from inclement weather, shade structures are also becoming increasing popular in the protection against harmful UV rays.  These structures can be designed to follow along with surrounding architecture, or lead the way with a bold direction of their own. 

Just as each project site is distinctive, there are no 'stock' buildings.  Each structure is made one-at-a-time to customer requirements.  Customers select the shapes, coolours, ornamentation, roofing and special features.

  • designs that will complement surroundings and draw attention
  • structures that are engineered specifically for each site
  • architecturally appealing
  • built to last


"When we build, let us think that we build forever."

John Ruskin, Art & Architecture Essayist

1819-1900
