Wheelers Lane Primary School were looking for a space they could use as an extra learning and play zone and when they contacted A&S Landscape, we had exactly the product in mind.
Project – Canopy with coloured fence – Wheelers Lane Primary School
Product – Motiva Linear
Requirement – Space can be hard to come by when all of your walls are solid.
Which, thankfully, is the case with most buildings.
The problem then is how to gain quality space for learning and play without building full extensions. The answer is simple, because you probably don’t need more space, you just need to find a way to use the space you already have and haven’t even considered.
That’s right, outside. We mostly forget the immense opportunity that our outside spaces offer us and treat them as luxuries, only truly available during especially good weather. But the benefits of spending time outside are so great that finding a way to utilise this space year round is very important.
Outdoor covered shelters can take otherwise unusable space and give it purpose, opening it up for use as an additional area for learning, play and storage.
Wheelers Lane Primary School were looking for exactly that, a space they could use as an extra learning and play zone and when they contacted A&S Landscape, we had exactly the product in mind.
Solution – Installing a Motiva Linear canopy with a smart green steelwork and opal roofing has given Wheelers Lane Primary School a fantastic new option for year round useable space.
The Motiva Linear provides not only a wonderful shelter from poor weather but also shade from direct sunlight. The inclusion of a colourful fence has also added a spark of fun and imagination that truly complements the identity of the school.
Result – The result is simple. Wheelers Lane Primary School just got a bigger useable footprint without us having to build a single wall. By taking space outside that was unavailable during imperfect weather conditions A&S Landscape have ensured that Wheelers Lane is now home to a superb new area for learning and play.
