J&C Commercial: Beyond expectations at the Nocton Woolshed
11 April 2023
Nikki Chamberlin was frustrated that the incredible views seen from the deck at her rustic wedding venue could only be enjoyed in good weather.
“We wanted to use the guest capacity the deck offered but, as you can never rely on the weather, we simply couldn’t guarantee that space would be usable,” says Nikki, owner of the Nocton Woolshed in Clevedon, Auckland. She decided to investigate some options from Johnson & Couzins and is delighted with the outcome.
“We actually had friends in Christchurch recommend the products to us, so that gave us a bit of confidence from the start,” says Nikki. Nikki needed something that would work in rain, hail or shine and throughout the year. They opted for the Silencio SkyLouvre, paired with J&C’s Calido Zip Screens.
“Adding the J&C SkyLouvres and Calido Zip Screens has given us an all-weather space. It’s expanded the space we can offer guests in wet weather, which is already making a huge difference to the function opportunities we can create.” Nikki says the J&C crew were great to deal with from beginning to end – quick, reliable and very tidy.
“Our site had a few challenges, so Andrew from J&C came out with his colleague so they could see what they were dealing with and to make sure it would all work.” Since the installation in March 2023, Nikki has experienced the difference the SkyLouvres and screens make, and she’s not looking back.
“Now we’ve seen how they work, I can truly say they’ve made a huge difference to our business. We used to have canvas shade sails but they were simply no match for the wild weather we can experience. If we wanted to have an all-weather space, J&C’s products were a great solution,” says Nikki.
“Without any hesitation I can say these products have exceeded our expectations They are excellent quality, and you can see that in the finish and the finishing touches.” Nikki says they can now make full use of the deck and take advantage of the amazing view.
“It’s made the venue a lot more flexible and will be excellent for our business into the future. We couldn’t be happier with our decision to go with J&C,” says Nikki.
