Client Vision

Developing a new care home based in Ware, Hertfordshire, Lawrence Baker wanted to provide residents with an area within which they could really enjoy the outdoors. Their vision for this was a wooden gazebo with outdoor kitchen to provide a complete outdoor cooking and dining experience.

Why they chose us

At the initial enquiry, Lawrence Baker were pursuing premium outdoor kitchen equipment, to provide a long lasting and high quality outdoor cooking experience. They then realised The Lapa Company could supply more than just outdoor kitchen equipment, and that we could also design and build the bespoke gazebo they required, along with landscaping the surrounding area. Providing them a complete solution from one supplier.

Our proposal and value

To accommodate budget requirements, the accepted proposal was for a handcrafted hardwood structure complete with slab flooring, cedar shingle roof and BeefEater branded outdoor kitchen.

Project time

The initial enquiry was made in September 2016 with designs finalised in March 2017. The installation took place over three weeks in June 2017 and the project was finished on time and within budget.
