Posted on 15/06/2014

Project – Canopy with post pads – St Alphege C of E School
Product – Motiva Mono
Requirement – Like most things in life, there are items that you would really benefit from but you could just about survive without them.
However, if you take that to the extreme, you can just about survive without needing an Umbrella. It doesn’t rain all the time and you can always get away with a little downpour here and there.
But when you say it, it sounds kind of silly, doesn’t it?
And yet that’s the same situation that many buildings have with outdoor shelters. Your building will stay standing without them, but you instantly lose the ability to spend time outdoors and are dictated to by the weather. If you really didn’t have an Umbrella, you may well change plans when the first raindrop landed.
And that’s what happens with schools that don’t have suitable outdoor space. They are dictated to by the weather and are unable to either plan for sessions outside or offer those who do venture outside some shelter from the rain with their fresh air and natural light.
This is exactly why St Alphege C of E School got in touch with A&S Landscape, they wanted a suitable outdoor shelter to provide shelter from the rain and ensure that the area at their entrance was suitable for any weather, all year round.
Solution – A Motiva Mono canopy was installed with opal roofing to give shelter from the rain and direct sunlight too. To complete this structure and make it suitable for little adventurers 1800mm post pads in a smart contrast red were added.
Result – The result is a bright, playful entrance and play area that means nobody has to compromise due to the weather and means St Alphege C of E School has a brand new canopy that will last them for many years to come.
