Welcome to Shade Engineering

It was a pleasure dealing with Shade Engineering for this project – on site as well as in the office. There was excellent communication at all stages, efficient installation, very thorough as well as a handover.

We look forward to working with you again.


I would like to convey our thanks and appreciation for the professional manner in which you managed the recent construction of the large barrel roofed structure at our school. The project was handled proficiently at all stages from the original design process through to handover, with efficient communication and liaison throughout. The end product is practical, visually attractive and in line with the school’s overall architectural appearance. We believe that the height of the roof and its large span is in fact more impressive that we had imagined.

In particular, we were impressed with your ability to listen to our vision and provided various options, even to the point of suggesting an alternative contractor for portions of the work which were not within your company’s area of expertise.
