Covered Walkway and Play Areas At St Mary’s Centre in London
Posted on 27/02/2020
St Mary’s Centre wanted to add more sheltered areas to their outside space. Without any cover, the pupils couldn’t spend play times outside in poor weather conditions.
Project – St Mary’s Centre install three straight roof canopies in London
Product – Motiva Linear
Requirement – The excellent team at St Mary’s Centre in London, wanted to make better use out of their outdoor space. The staff decided to add a series of shelters around the site, which would make the area more accessible throughout the year. But it was also important to the school that the covers worked well the look of the rest of the site and were safe for the pupils to play under too.
Solution – Three straight roof canopies were installed at the site by A&S Landscape. The Motiva Linear shelters all featured brightly coloured Signal Green steelwork, which added a splash of colour to grounds. The Opal polycarbonate used on the canopies also protects against harmful UV rays, while allowing a safe amount of sunlight through. As a finishing touch, St Mary’s Centre also decided to add dark green post pads to the canopies too.
Result – Now the outside space at the school can be used all-year-round, regardless of the weather. With two sheltered play areas and a covered walkway, everyone can move around the site protected from the elements. The pupils can also spend more time outside in the fresh air during their breaks, which will have many benefits on their health and wellbeing.
