Commercial Introduction

With our expertise in creating stunning themed structures we can offer an extremely wide range of services to commercial partners. This can range from a simple thatched umbrella all the way up to a fully constructed and project managed 100 seat African Restaurant. Our Lapas, Gazebos, Outdoor Kitchens and associated products have been used in many commercial applications such as Zoos, Theme Parks, Bars, Pubs, Restaurants, Hotels, Wedding Venues and Schools throughout the UK and Europe.

In addition to Cedar Shingle finishes, we also offer the widest range of thatch structures and thatch styles available in the UK. Our knowledge of thatching styles and techniques allows our master thatchers to create African, Asian, Tropical and traditional thatch finishes. We source genuine thatch materials from all over the world and are the European distributor for Endureed Synthetic Thatch products. These are particularly suitable for commercial applications due to their low maintenance, longevity and fire retardant properties. Find out more about Endureed here.

We will always use the services of a chartered structural engineer to check your building before handover where relevant. Our commercial service can include the complete design, construction, landscaping and project management of your build, or we can work in collaboration with your planning or landscaping team.

To view a range of our projects please visit our case studies page. On our case studies page, and below, we have also provided detailed case studies for you to view. We are proud of our relationships with some of the largest Zoo and themed corporations in the UK. We always deliver our projects to the highest standard and this is reflected in the ongoing relationships and projects with these customers.
