Project Brief

After a long history of working together on Ged Lynch’s portfolio of North West restaurants, Ged appointed James Robertshaw to install the awnings at his new £1.5 million refurbishment project in Sheffield, The Pointing Dog Clubhouse.


A requirement of two folding-arm awning systems were specified to add both presence and shelter to the landscaped patio areas to the fron and side of the venue. Having an exisiting relationship is always helpful as the client's expectations were already met.


Installation was scheduled and took two full days to install, test and comission all product.


Ged wanted to optimise the capacity for customers to enjoy the outdoors all year round by creating protection for up to 50 people on a platform area leading straight from the bar. James Robertshaw met the specification with a whopping 2 x 24.5m2 Tiger (Storbox 400) folding-awning systems, two Solarmagic heat and light bars and four Solarmagic heaters.

I always get a couple of prices just to check, but James Robertshaw are really competitive. They always are. All of our awnings are automatically retractable. A built-in wind vibration sensor protects them from being damaged and, at the same time, protects us from large repair bills.
