Shield Canopy™ for temporary dry storage & welfare facilities for a construction business

R E Butler is a family-based company based in Essex with a history of residential construction dating back to the 1920s. They have a strong track record of constructing residential estates across the South of England. In 2014 they established a consultancy business for super prime residential developments in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

They approached McGregor Fabric Structures because they needed an outdoor covered area as part of their site facilities for an 18-month construction project.

The main two requirements were for a dry storage area and welfare facilities for onsite staff. Most importantly, this structure needed to be dismantled and moved to their next construction project.

Combining Strength With Mobility
Shield Canopy™ is the best choice because it creates temporary storage without sacrificing durability. The 12m x 20’ canopy provides ample interior space for both dry storage and a rest area. Self-installation is straightforward and comes with detailed instructions for assembly.

We met their lead time of two months. And just like R E Butler, we are a family-run business and manufacture Shield Canopy™ in the UK.

Shield Canopy™ Protects Material And People
In November 2021, R E Butler completed the self-build of Shield Canopy™. The canopy stood strong through the named storms throughout February 2022. To date, Shield Canopy™ covers insulation materials and a staff rest area. In the future, R E Butler plans to relocate the canopy once the project is complete.

The canopy has performed through the tough storms earlier in the year and have been a fantastic addition for on-site staff and keeping materials dry.
