A Café ready to embrace its natural surroundings
Client: Hazlehead park
Hazlehead Park is situated near Aberdeen. The park encompasses both city and countryside with its formal garden layouts, woodland walks, nature trails and bridleways and is a popular relaxation area. The Park Café is situated within the site and overlooks stunning parkland and is a place for visitors to stop. At the front of the Café is a large terrace which is a perfect spot in the sunshine, however the space was unused during the winter months. The client wanted to use this space throughout the year and sought the help of Zapp. We proposed covering the terrace with a Novo roof completed with Cristal side awnings, lighting and heating.
Team Comments on the project:
The Zapp Installation Team had a few hurdles to overcome whilst working on this project including the short daylight hours due to it being November. It was therefore essential we worked smart and planned out exactly what needed to be achieved on each day of the project. The weather conditions were also challenging during the installation but our team handled this like pros.
Due to Zapp’s fantastic work, the Café has more than doubled its useable space during inclement weather. Due to the size of the single roof we choose to use our patented storm channel joining system which means 100% waterproof joining every time.
The roof also had to be set up to ensure it could cope with the weight of snow. So now customers can enjoy the spectacular Aberdeenshire parkland rain or shine (and indeed snow).

The Chippenham restaurant had a full refit both inside and out, Zapp installed 3 large Vortex Umbrellas, branded with the McDonalds logo. The brand new alfresco dining area was enclosed with our new LED illuminated glass screens. These really do raise brand awareness, and the McDonalds logo looks stunning, especially when lit up at night.

Protection from the rain or as currently the UK is experiencing a heatwave shade from the sun.
