Project – New outdoor dining canopy at Brownhills School in West Midlands
Product – Motiva Duo
Requirement – Brownhills School is a community school where the focus is on providing the very best environment for pupils. Adequate space to have lunch and take a break with friends, ensures that pupils are refreshed and able to concentrate in the afternoon lessons. It was this requirement which drove Brownhills School to install a large canopy and create a courtyard dining area.
Solution – Brownhills School had a rather unloved outdoor courtyard area which had no shelter. This meant that it couldn’t be used all year round. A&S Landscape can offer a broad range of canopies and were consulted to come up with designs to cover the area. A Duo canopy from the Motiva range was selected and installed at 12202mm x 9976mm. The large canopy has Alu-Tuff (aluminium box profile) guttering and downpipes in matching mid-blue dura-coat and the roofing was opal polycarbonate.
Result – The courtyard area is now used by many more pupils as it has created an outdoor dining space. The new tables mean that children are more likely to sit and eat together as well as sit and socialise at break times. What was a bleak space with no purpose has been transformed in to a delightful dining area which offers shade in the hot months and shelter in the wet months. What a lovely new space for the children to enjoy. All without the need for a permanent extension. We think this is a stylish and cost effective solution to a need for more dining space.
