A&S Landscape worked with the school to design a bespoke outdoor dining shelter constructed from steel and polycarbonate. The canopy measured 19552mm x 9131mm and was fitted with polycarbonate side panels and 2 x 2.5m roller shutter doors. The steelwork and Alu Tuff guttering was Traffic Blue and the roofing Opal polycarbonate. The canopy created the secure, sheltered area that the school was looking for and they completed it by adding picnic benches for the students.
The outdoor dining area at Branston Community Academy has created a fabulous dining and socialising area for students. The perfect solution for a growing school who found crowding at lunchtimes a problem. Now students can enjoy more seating space whatever the weather. Not only does the covered dining space protect the students from the wet weather, but it also shelters them from wind and protects them from UV rays on brighter days. A real all-year-round solution.
“My name is Andrew Pell, I am the Assistant Caretaker at Branston Community Academy in Lincolnshire. Our canopy was built in term time, the A&S Landscape team were aware of all health and safety considerations and there was no disruption to the school. The children find it very useful, it is really busy at lunchtimes every day and it is a great asset to the school really. You can sit out here in all weathers, even in the rain and the wind. The build quality is absolutely superb.”

A Maxima Sail canopy was installed at the college, comprising of two square sails with six posts. The Peele Community College chose a Victoria Blue and Celadon colour for the fabric, which works perfectly with the slate grey steelwork. The college also purchased two benches from the A&S Landscape shop.
The students now have a dedicated area outside where they can go to relax, refresh or unwind. This space is sure to be popular during exam periods as an alternative revision area. It could also be used as a covered dining space, if the students want to enjoy an alfresco lunch. Because of the waterproof PVC fabric used on the sail structure, this area can be enjoyed throughout the year, no matter the weather.

A Motiva Duo™ curved roof canopy was added to the quad area. Measuring 10000mm x 10000mm, there is plenty of space for many students to gather underneath. The Slate Grey steelwork and Alu Tuff guttering blends in well with the surrounding buildings and the Opal polycarbonate roofing blocks harmful UV rays. With integral guttering and downpipes, the academy doesn’t have to worry about the canopy in poor weather.
Humberston Academy now has a covered dining space which can be used all-year-round. The students have a choice of where to sit at lunchtimes, which relieves pressure from the existing dining hall.

The requirement was two-fold, in that the entrance to The St Lawrence Academy required some shelter as well as a greater sense of identity. This was easily remedied by the addition of a striking Motiva Mono™ curved roof canopy, which shelters visitors, parents and students from the elements, as well as adding a smart first impression when people arrive.
The second requirement was for additional dining space. To give students the option to dine outside whatever the weather is just another way in which The St Lawrence Academy add to the learning environment for their pupils. The decision was to add two Maxima Umbrellas™ to the playground area. With waterproof fabric, these umbrellas not only shade the pupils from UV rays in the summer, they offer shelter from the rain in the wetter months too. More people can now dine outdoors and enjoy some welcome fresh air, even in the wintertime.
The result is a very smart outdoor area at The St Lawrence Academy. The entrance makes a striking first impression and many more children now enjoy eating, socialising and relaxing outdoors all year round. Overall, the school has added some lovely new areas to the campus. We love it!

A Motiva Linear™, straight roof canopy was installed on The St Lawrence Academy’s campus. The shelter is located just outside of the dining space inside, so students can make use of the area during their lunchbreaks. Measuring 7500mm X 6000mm, there is plenty of room under the canopy for the students to socialise and relax. The grey steelwork works perfectly with the surrounding buildings, and the clear roofing material lets the sunshine through.
Now when it is rainy or windy, the students can still go outside to enjoy some fresh air. This helps them to relax and feel refreshed ahead of their next lessons. Teachers can also enjoy the option to hold lessons outside, as the canopy offers an alternative learning environment.
As well as straight roof canopies, A&S Landscape offers curved, waved and fabric roof options. Take a look at our gallery to get inspiration or call our friendly team on 01743 444100 to discuss your options.
A Motiva Linear™, straight roof canopy was chosen for the Academy. The 6200mm X 2500mm shelter was installed alongside the school building to provide a valuable covered area. The Blue Grey RAL colour on the framework and Alu Tuff guttering blends seamlessly with the surroundings. The Opal roofing material also adds essential protection from UV rays, while still allowing sunlight through.
Now the students of Springwell Academy have a space where they can stand protected from the rain or sun. Whether they are socialising or waiting for a lesson, the canopy is the perfect fit. Parents, staff and students are all happy with their new canopy and it is a valuable addition to the academy.

A&S Landscape was asked to provide just such a service, installing a Motiva Mono™ in the space between two doorways at Pinchbeck East C of E Primary School, creating an instant covered walkway that meant, no matter how heavy the rain, the young pupils had dry access between classrooms. This Motiva Mono™ monopitch curved roof canopy was installed at 9137mm x 3000mm with Marine Blue (RAL 5002) steelwork and Alu Tuff guttering throughout, including the Alu-Tuff ™ guttering and downpipes.
The result is dry access, all year round and no more soggy exercise books being used as a temporary shelter. This Motiva Mono™ curved roof canopy looks smart and adds to the overall aesthetics of the building whilst providing protection from the weather that will last for many years. School playground equipment could also be stored under the canopy too, saving space inside the school.

It was agreed that the Motiva Linear™ straight roof canopy was the best fit for effectively covering the spaces outside the classrooms. The design has large, useable areas, kept posts to a minimum and was very aesthetically pleasing. The steelwork and Alu Tuff guttering was in Green (RAL 6005) and the roofing in Opal polycarbonate. The new canopies looked smart as soon as they went up.
The children at John Fielding Community Special School now have shade and shelter to enjoy more time outdoors without the weather getting in the way! For some of the children with additional needs, the option to have more outside space where they can go to have some ‘quiet time’ or space to reflect, is very important. Now they have more options and a smart canopy which keeps both the sunshine from glaring through the windows in the summer and the rain from wetting the playground in the winter.
