What did the client request?

Easily summed up – a makeover! The building was being given a spruce up, a fresh lick of paint and freshly skinned awnings with refreshed branding was called for to give the Italian Restaurant a fresh new look, all in time for it’s re-opening.

What makes this project unique?

We were contacted to assist with developing the front face of their new building to tie in with their fresh new look, aiming for authentic shades of Italy. Three awnings were recommended to tie in with the look they were trying to achieve ranging from 3.4m to 4.8m all with a 1.4m extension.

Transportation of the awnings was a challenge, upmost care was needed to securely fit the awnings on our trailer without damaging the skins. Then there was the installation…the building is located on the bustling Blair Street in Wellington, requiring 7 staff to safely fit the awnings onto the building and ensure all health and safety requirements were being met.

The awnings were covered in a shade of blue PVC and branded with their refreshed new logo, a large scalloped valance was fitted which tied in perfectly with the look of the building.
