Testimonials

Opera Bar, East Circular Quay, Sydney

We have worked successfully with Darren Crabb & his team on a number projects at our venues over the years, each time we have been successfull in creating functional outdoor areas that have exceeded our expectations in terms of quality and service provided each time.

The Opera bar project was no exception, the Architectural Umbrellas provide complete weather protection while also integrating heating and lighting to extend our trading period through night and the coller months. We have had the first umbrellas installed over twenty years ago now we have changed the fabric due to a request from authorities but could have easily had the same fabric still shinning like new, the frames we polish and they look the same as the day we had them installed.

The overall look and feel of the area is casual while we have great flexibility and functionality to this space.

I would recommend the Darren & the team at Street Umbrellas Australia as they have been providing many our venues with creative outdoor solutions & good service for many years.

Cheers

To Whom It May Concern

I collaborated with Mr Darren Crabb on a umbrella concept for the outdoor areas on two projects a number of years agow now. Our first project was the outdoor eating areas at Australia Square, we developed a portable umbrella to be installed through each of the tables. I ended up trialing this for a number of months and they had been well received so we installed over 130 of these small architectural umbrellas to Australia Square over the next year.

After some years of these architectural umbrellas being very successful at the Australia Square project I contacted Darren again and asked him to develop a similar concept for the MLC Centre in Sydney CBD.

On this project we ended up using some 30 larger architectural umbrellas and again this was very well received.

So after working with Darren and his team on thee projects I can safely say the service and end product was very refreshing to past experiences with this type product .

Kind Regards
