SS Shieldhall I would like to say thank you to you and your fantastic installation team. You delivered exactly what we agreed and the team that installed the canopy couldn't have been more professional and helpful.
Manchester College The installation of the canopy was outstanding from start to finish, with minimal disruption during our busiest week of the year, enrolment week. Visually it works to provide an exciting touch to the building approach.
National Railway Museum The work carried out by J & J Carter was actually finished before the anticipated completion date, with minimal disruption to ongoing activity at the museum. The structure is impressive, reliable and fully functional in the purposes for which it was intended.
Stringer & Jones Architects The superb design has worked to enhance the terrace and assist in providing an idyllic surround for the residents of the development to enjoy the views of the ocean, which is a major selling point. The outstanding quality of work gives us confidence that the canopies will withstand the environmental conditions of the location. J & J Carter worked admirably alongside the builders to fit into the scheme.
Arup From a design point of view this was an extremely challenging piece of engineering design and we had to have complete confidence in the manufacture and erection - which we did get from J & J Carter. Also the programme was incredibly tight and from when we first approached them very late in the day they did deliver to the project deadlines.
Sandown Park Racecourse The canopies have modernised and improved the appearance of the racecourse. As well as providing adequate coverage for our spectators in all types of weather, the floodlit canopies have made the area multi-purpose as we are able to use it in the evenings.
Cricklade Theatre We are extremely pleased with the canopy - it is striking, contemporary and perfectly suited to our venue. From a functional point of view it provides adequate coverage and looks as good now as it did when first installed. We had to work to a very tight budget and J & J Carter proved themselves to be reliable by delivering on time and within budget, and the level of service we received was very reassuring.
White Pavilion Gazebos J & Carter have supplied us for many years - 100's of canopies and 1,000's of side screens for our luxury gazebos. Without exception, my customers tell me how much they appreciate the quality, the style and the robustness of their products. A big thank you to Robert and his team.
The Mill House Hotel We can’t thank Robert and Ollie enough for their tireless patience and professionalism from the planning stage through to installation. From minor adjustments, co-ordination of the work force to ensure we have a Marquee fit for purpose. The end result is fantastic.
