There are many factors to take into consideration when installing a structure suitable to providing shade and shelter within an outdoor environment. These are…​

  • Ground support

  • Measurements

  • Attachment to buildings

  • Electrical Requirements *where applicable

  • Levels

Each of these points are factored into our site survey, providing you with an insight into our extensive industry knowledge, ensuring your purchase meets your requirements and advising you on what groundwork is required to enable a stable build of your structure.

Site Survey

We can then advise on…


Pre-assembled sizing of structure, how this is delivered and entry points to site

Ground Support

A visual look at your current ground to identify what footing are required to ensure the required group support for the structure


Checking and advising on the structural dimensions within the desired area of installation, whilst identifying any possible obstructions and where applicable, advising on actions to eliminate obstructions.

Attachment To Buildings

Assessing the building that the structure will be attached to and making recommendations on work required, or flashing required, to ensure watertight fitment.


Assessing ground level and determining any work required to achieve a level surface which is strong enough to support the structure to the manufacturer’s specification.

All the above can then be carried out by yourself or sublet to your choice of trusted traders with experience within the various fields, giving you the peace of mind to purchase with confidence.
