Covered Playground Area at Finlay Community School in Gloucester

Posted on 15/08/2019

Finlay School
Finlay Community School wanted to create a space where their pupils could play outside all-year-round. A&S Landscape designed, manufactured and installed a straight roof canopy in an area of the playground.

Project – Finlay Community School add straight roof playground canopy in Gloucester

Product – Motiva Linear

Requirement – Finlay Community School felt their fantastic facilities were lacking a sheltered space where pupils could play under throughout the year. When the conditions were poor, the pupils had to stay inside the school during break and lunchtimes, meaning they couldn’t get any fresh air. A&S Landscape worked with the school to find the perfect shelter solution.

Solution – A straight roof canopy was built alongside one of the buildings at Finlay Community School. The Motiva Linear shelter measures a total of 17500mm X 3000mm, so there is plenty of room for many pupils to play underneath. The steelwork was finished in a beautiful Blue Lilac colour, which adds a pop of colour to the site. What’s more, is that the Opal coloured polycarbonate roofing even blocks harmful UV rays too.

Result – The pupils can now enjoy their playtimes outside all through the year thanks to the new canopy. They can let off steam and refresh before their next lessons no matter the weather. Teachers can also make use of the canopy by taking their classes outside. This alternative and exciting learning environment will help to engage the pupils.
