Covered Walkway at Sycamore Academy, Nottingham

Posted on 14/06/2018

Sycamore Academy
The canopy was designed and installed with Marine Blue (RAL 5002) steelwork and clear polycarbonate roofing. It links the two school buildings well and benefits from post pads for added safety. The children, staff and visitors at Sycamore Academy are no longer exposed to the elements as they move around the school. Whether shade from the sunshine or shelter from the rain, the canopy is doing its job and looking very smart at the same time.

Project – School walkway links buildings at Sycamore Academy, Nottingham

Product – Motiva Linear

Requirement – Sycamore Academy in Nottingham take pride in all they do and they demand exceptional commitment from staff and pupils alike. They wanted to add a shelter to a space on campus between two school buildings. The covered area would ensure that people were protected from the elements as they moved around school.

Solution – Sycamore Academy contacted A&S Landscape and we were pleased to discuss the different options available to them. We have a Motiva range of canopies which are steel and polycarbonate and these come in a number of different designs; straight roof, curved roof, cantilever to name just a few. The decision was taken to go with the Motiva Linear monopitch canopy at 9300mm x 4500mm. This benefitted from aluminium gutters and downpipes to manage rainwater.

Result – The canopy was designed and installed with Marine Blue (RAL 5002) steelwork and clear polycarbonate roofing. It links the two school buildings well and benefits from post pads for added safety. The children, staff and visitors at Sycamore Academy are no longer exposed to the elements as they move around school. Whether shade from the sunshine or shelter from the rain, the canopy is doing its job and looking very smart at the same time.
