John Rigby & Co Gunmakers London We can support your planning application process with CAD produced plans and fabric samples for all our structures, and we often work directly with your planners to provide the necessary information needed to gain successful planning permissions.
De s i g n & P rod u c t i o n The process starts by understanding our clients ideas, requirements and any technical issues that need to be solved. Whether it’s a huge bespoke canvas structure for an event venue, or glamping tents on a working farm; we treat each project with the same drive and commitment. Site surveys are often required and clients are always welcome to visit the factory too. Once we have an established all of our clients needs we get to work on the design. Bond have been designing canvas structures for over 35 years and our team have a wealth of experience. Using our CAD tools we can not only create the perfect fit but also provide our clients with that all important visual tool to understand both the design style and also the scale and proportions both inside and out. Both our smaller glamping safari tents and also our large structures can be secured to either a hard standing or a bespoke built wooden deck. We can either provide our clients team with the decking plans, or our own skilled carpentry team will build the decks. Our team also provides bespoke built carpentry elements for the interior fit out of our tents. Since we manufacture all structures in-house, we have complete control of the materials used which is most important for the frames. Our structural engineers ensure that we use the correct frame type for the location, size and use. We use either premium structural-grade steel frames, aluminium profile clearspan frames or tubular aluminium … all are designed by us and manufactured here in the UK.
The Bond production process relies on technology, automation and also the experience and skill of our dedicated team. All materials are inspected throughout the process to maintain the quality we are renowned for. Our team work collaboratively throughout the design and manufacture process, meeting design requirements and improving the process continuously. When the time arrives for installation we have everything covered and always involve our clients every step of the way. Our team can take care of the complete installation or we also offer the option for us to lead your own team. For larger projects and complex structures we also work with various specialist installation crews across the UK, though we remain in complete control of the project. Due to the nature of our canvas structures there are many elements that are handmade, thus requiring both skill and an eye for detail. Our team of machinists are committed to quality and style, and are heavily involved in the development of projects that require their knowledge and expertise, particularly if a prototype is required. This is not the end of the journey though … at Bond we pride ourselves on the many lasting relationships we have with our clients.

Many clients will go years without the need for a repair … but we are always here to respond.
