The Student Village Co. approached us to help design and manufacture a canopy that would provide a light, sheltered walkway between the student accommodation cabins.

Pontarddulais Garden Centre Trellis Arch Canopy

Plant sales have risen by 34 per cent at Pontarddulais garden centre in Swansea since the extension to its planteria opened in April 2013.

The 400sq m extension is a steel construction, with part glass and part PVC covering. It creates a new entrance to the store and is mainly used to house plants.

Malcolm Scott consultants was working with Pontarddulais to design and build the extension.

Pontarddulais owner David Evans said: "My planteria has been greatly improved by this undercover extension. It gives me an opportunity to sell during adverse weather conditions."

He added: "The development gives a warm ambience that customers are happy to dwell in for longer, spending time on choosing plants that perhaps they wouldn't have done if they were standing outside in poor weather conditions."

"I would say it's taken the centre up a couple of notches in public perception. It's given us a nice modern feel in a 45-year-old garden centre."

Pontarddulais has more plans for improvements in the next 12 months, including recovering the patio area outside the restaurant. It also plans to open a 3,000sq ft outdoor living centre that will stock garden furniture in an on-site building that used to house a pet shop.

Evans said: "I've noticed that the numbers of repeat visitors are going up, with customers returning on a more regular and frequent basis. The response we've had from the extension has been positive. People are really enjoying it." *

Booths Garden Centre

From the Ashes…a Garden Centre Humbly rises. In January last year Booths Garden Centre in Royton, Oldham suffered a devastating blow when fire destroyed the buildings, sadly killing many of the animals on site. Mr. Booth commissioned us to re-construct the Garden Centre with a 4 bay-curved box structure. Since then we revisited the newly re-furbished Garden Centre and were thoroughly impressed with the ambience that had been created. Under the translucent cladding of the canopy a combination of white washed and reclaimed wood surrounded by shades of green give a light and airy space. To the back of the structure we were shown a large selection of live free-range poultry, which will provide daily fresh eggs for sale.

The satisfied look on Mr. Booth's face as he gave us the guided tour made all the hard work worthwhile.



 The Garden Shed!

We were commissioned to design and build a new home for a customer’s JCB. The structure had to be high enough to hold the JCB with an added area for growing. Our in house team of designers and structural engineers set to work designing his dream ‘shed’, which is a single bay curved box canopy. The framework has been designed to withstand all local wind speed and snowfall calculations. With a canopy clad with translucent PVC and the sides with British manufactured Visqueen Luminance 800g polythene, the structure gives natural light to the area for working and growing. The structure was then manufactured in house and constructed by our team of experienced engineers.

The customer is “delighted” with the result of the design and build and is looking forward to many years in his ‘Shed’ at the bottom of the garden. Unfortunately his daughter has already taken a liking to the structure for her forthcoming wedding!





NP Structures gives Ball Colegrave the Tree of Life...

 Ball Colegrave opened its doors to its trial grounds in West Adderbury in an exciting and innovative display that NP Structures are proud to be a part of.

One of the highlights at Ball Colegrave is the display gardens. Designed by landscape architect Tiernach Mcdermott and Ian Cole the Hanging Basket Wave, The Tree of Life and Man (recently named Bruce).

Manufactured by NP Structures, the Tree of Life stands at 18 feet tall and displays an array of colourful hanging baskets. Alongside the tree is Bruce, a 12ft tall man who appears to be selecting his own basket. NP Structures also manufactured the Wave, which displays more colourful baskets.

A video of the display can be seen here…




Leeds University – Roll of Roof

Effects of environmental change: increased nematode pest status on UK crops

Due to the predicted UK climate change in the near future, Leeds University has created a research facility where they can impose strict environmental conditions on to their potato crop. This includes anywhere from drought through to extreme wet. NP Structures designed and manufactured a bespoke ‘polytunnel’ with a roll off roof. A rain sensor controls the polytunnel's roll off roof. When it rains, the roof rolls down. When fine, the roof is open.

"The structures are superb…really good!" Urwin
