Fordingbridge has provided a striking curved canopy, covered with Opal 60 fabric, for Squires Garden Centre in Long Ditton. Having built Squires’ Long Ditton site in 2003, the popularity of the centre meant a need for increased retail space.
Working with Pleydell Smithyman, an additional 50% of retail space was achieved by converting the original canopy with the addition of curtain walling and replacing the fabric roof with an insulated roof to match the existing building.
To maintain the external covered retail area, a new canopy, covered with Opal 60 fabric in the same style, was connected onto the newly converted area. The result is a stunning garden centre totalling 1504m2 of retail space, seamlessly blending the old with the new and working perfectly to guide customers from the newly revamped internal shop and café to the beautifully landscaped external sales space.
Paul Pleydell, director at Pleydell Smithyman, said "Fordingbridge were a great partner for this project, delivering a good looking and well executed technical solution, on time and on budget - what more could we ask."
