"The installation of our school canopy went smoothly and to timescale. As the school was open to pupils at the time of installation, every care was given to their safety and well-being. The site area was kept clean and tidy and disruption to the school was minimal. The workers were polite when spoken to. Communication between the school and Inside2Outside was excellent. We would recommend the company to other schools"
