Drop off Canopy in Chester
Posted on 08/08/2016
The prestigious King’s School in Chester is a community were staff and pupils share common values and set some really incredible standards so when they contacted A&S we were excited to get involved.
Project – The King’s School Drop Off Canopy
Product – Motiva Mono
Requirements – Rain, rain, go away, come again another day.
But, of course, it won’t. We’ve conquered the skies, sent a man to the moon but we don’t yet have voice control for the weather. So when you have a large exposed area that you know staff and students will use, it’s wise to offer some kind of robust outdoor shelter, a place to gather when it’s raining cats and dogs (it’s never money, is it?).
The prestigious King’s School in Chester is a community were staff and pupils share common values and set some really incredible standards so when they contacted A&S we were excited to get involved and offer the best outdoor shelter for their particular problem.
King’s School had the challenge of a long pathway along a section of the building adjacent to the car park with no protection from the rain.
The walkway has heavy footfall at all times of the day and acts as a car and bus drop off point so staff and pupils of the independent school for boys and girls aged from 4-18 were often exposed to rain, snow, and other unpleasant conditions.
Solution – The solution was our Motiva Mono curved roof canopy in an attractive Marine Blue colour with a contrasting green roof framework and clear roof panels. Being able to offer this mix of colours in the same structure was a real bonus for the client. The covered walkway canopy extends over 15100mm (over 40ft) and provides ample cover during busy times.
Result – Being able to offer a robust steel canopy structure like this, whilst still implementing a mix of colours was a real bonus, meaning the outdoor drop off shelter looks smart and does the job.
So when the rain won’t go away, staff and students and Kings School don’t need to get drenched.
