Seven Matching Shelters Installed at the Haughmond Federation Site in Shrewsbury

The Haughmond Federation was looking for a company to install a set of outdoor canopies at its new build in Shrewsbury, combining its sites of Harlescott Junior School and Sundorne Infant School and Nursery. They needed to allow the children to get outside and play throughout the year, no matter the weather, and have matching designs that reflected the wonderful, modern school buildings. We were thrilled when the team got in touch with us as they were local to our A&S Landscape headquarters.

After discussing some of our product range, the Haughmond Federation picked out our Motiva Linear™. This model was a great choice for matching shelters to enable outdoor play, as it offers effective coverage in wind and rain and has many design options. The staff made the most of this by selecting sleek, Squirrel Grey steelwork and Opal roofs for seven canopies across the new site – in their explorers hard play area, nursery play space, reception playground and Key Stage 1 hardstanding area.

The staff and pupils think the set of outdoor canopies is wonderful; they can now fit getting more fresh air into their school days, even in the winter or the rain. Wet playtimes are a thing of the past and the modern custom canopy structures have made the outside spaces welcoming, as well as efficient. Call us on 01743 444100 to discuss your canopy needs now.

Three Bright Outdoor Shelters Installed at Allscott Meads Primary in Telford

Allscott Meads Primary in Telford, Shropshire was hoping to find a trio of outdoor canopies to brighten the areas outside its newly built school. The team wanted products with attractive rainbow designs that offered great coverage so children could enjoy the fresh air at break time whenever they liked in cheerful spaces. The site was near our headquarters so this was a special project for us to complete.

We discussed our product range and its possibilities with our client and they asked us to supply three Motiva Linear™ canopies with Slate Grey steelwork. Being snow-safe and wind-safe, this model can stand up to all kinds of weather and shield those beneath it. The matching multi-coloured roofs in Daffodil, Poppy, Mint, Lagoon Blue and Mandarin brought a lively atmosphere while providing excellent protection from the elements for pupils when getting outside during their breaks.

The outdoor shelters were a hit with our customer’s community. The vivid structures encourage positivity and play and their reliable construction means that rain won’t stop the children from fitting time outside into their busy days at this brand-new school. Plus, they create fantastic focal points in the grounds. Contact us at [email protected] or on 01743 444100 today to talk through your shelter ideas.

Range of Modern Canopies Installed at Bowbrook Primary School in Shrewsbury

Bowbrook Primary School in Shrewsbury reached out to design a range of canopies to be installed at their newly built facility. The team at this school – who aim to build accomplished, resilient, and compassionate children – wanted to source a covered area for their playground as well as various canopies around the perimeter of the school to provide shelter for the playground and entrances.

After getting in touch with A&S Landscape, the school and our team began to design the canopies to ensure that they were durable, in keeping with the modern architecture, and would have a bespoke fit to each area. Upon discussion, our popular Motiva Linear™ was chosen for multiple locations around the school, with the addition of our Maxima Sail™ to cover a seating area on their playground. Both products take full advantage of our solid steel framework, with the Motiva Linear™ sporting an Opal polycarbonate roof that provides shelter from both rain and sun. Meanwhile, the Maxima Sail™ boasts Black Grey steelwork and a fabric roof in Hemp which is highly durable and easily adaptable.

Bowbrook Primary School loves how the new canopies compliment the modern architecture at the school and provide shelter to ensure that the children can take full advantage of their outdoor space throughout the year. To find out more about our products, call A&S Landscape today on 01743 444100

Outdoor Shelter Chosen by Apley Wood Primary School in Telford

Apley Wood Primary School in Telford needed an outdoor canopy to offer additional shelter in its Year One area, for everything from dining to play. They wanted it to have a fun, colourful design and enable pupils to enjoy time outside in all sorts of weather. It was also important that the canopy created a safe space for the young children to run around in. A&S Landscape came highly recommended to the school, so they contacted us about this project.

Apley Wood Primary School chose to have a Motiva Mono™ installed to create their ideal Year One shelter. This model’s popular applications include covered dining and play areas, so it was a good fit for the staff’s vision. The 13000mm X 3000mm measurements provided room for everyone to get creative, play and even learn in the great outdoors, year-round. Plus, with a Clear roof and Ultramarine Blue steelwork, the canopy created a bright and exciting area for the children to spend time in. Three post protector pads ensured their safety in the new facility too.

Everyone at Apley Wood Primary School was impressed with the outdoor shelter. They said, “Fantastic finish on the canopy, very happy with the installation.” It’s a wonderful place for pupils to enjoy breaks between lessons playing, eating, learning or chatting with friends, and the rain now never puts a damper on their plans. The children love the colourful design that has transformed the outside space. Call us on 01743 444100 to explore our shelter solutions.

Sophisticated Shade Sail Added to Telford College in Wellington

Telford College in Wellington, Shropshire had the idea to buy a shade sail for its students to relax and eat underneath outside in all weathers. The staff there wanted it to have a modern, stylish design that blended into the grounds and would impress current and potential learners alike. They got in touch with us and we were more than happy to work with them to build their ideal canopy, especially because they were local to our office.

Following talks about their vision with our canopy and shelter specialists, Telford College requested a Maxima StarSail™. Full of aesthetic appeal and innovation with its fabric roof, this shade sail always makes a great impression and increases outdoor areas’ usability. We designed this particular 4000mm X 4000mm model with a stunning Moss Green roof, complemented by Squirrel Grey steelwork, which made for an overall sophisticated look and a functional place for students to spend time on breaks.

The community at Telford College has fallen in love with its new shade sail. The young learners now have somewhere to enjoy time away from their classrooms in the fresh air, whether it’s rainy or sunny and whether they want to eat lunch or chat with friends. Plus, the sleek green shelter has lifted the atmosphere in the grounds. It was a pleasure to see a local client so happy with our project.

A smart, bright canopy which adds to the overall aesthetic of Weston Rhyn Primary School. It is a smart way to shelter people from the rain as they enter and leave the building.

The children have more opportunities for outside play and even to have lessons under their new school canopy. Almost like a classroom extension but without being a permanent structure which would require planning permission. A great result, thank you for choosing A&S Landscape.

Curved Roof Breaktime Canopy Installed at The Corbet School in Baschurch

The Corbet School in Baschurch operates a busy and thriving secondary campusCurved roof shelter we designed for The Corbet School. With lots going on throughout the school day, they have the same challenge as many other secondary schools of balancing the logistics of hundreds of school pupils vying for quality space to enjoy break and mealtimes.

It often isn’t until all the school’s pupils are wanting to find somewhere to sit and catch their breath that the full impact upon dining and breakout areas is apparent. The Corbet School recognised that somewhere that students could go to and find shelter outside of the school building would help this challenge in many ways.

Approaching A&S Landscape with this brief in mind, The Corbet School worked with us to devise a scheme to target this issue. The end result was the installation of a Motiva Duo™ canopy cover measuring 14000 mm X 8000 mm. Large enough to provide shelter to a number of students during busy break times, it came with a range of other additional benefits to the wider school community too. These benefits included offering a breakout space for group work on projects, as well as the potential to offer an outdoor classroom setting. This impressive shelter was completed in Sapphire Blue steelwork and an Opal polycarbonate roof cover. With the Sapphire Blue fitting nicely with the school’s emblem, the end result was a fabulous resource for the whole school to enjoy.

Outdoor Dining Shelter Added to Grounds at Lacon Childe School in Cleobury Mortimer

Lacon Childe School in Cleobury Mortimer needed a dining canopy so students could spend break times in the fresh air, have a choice of facilities and have more space to eat and relax compared to in existing areas. The staff at this institution – which ‘provides a secure, safe and caring environment’ – also thought their ideal shelter would have a straightforward but sleek design that didn’t detract from the architecture or grounds.

Lacon Childe School got in touch with us and we manufactured a 16000mm X 8000mm Motiva Duo™ for them. This model features a symmetric curved roof that many schools find appealing and makes it an effective canopy for outdoor dining. The team chose Opal polycarbonate and Slate Grey steelwork to create the unobtrusive, modern look they desired, and this made for a fantastic shelter that could easily withstand rain, wind and run.

Staff and students at Lacon Childe School love the new dining canopy; break times are no longer crowded and queues have been reduced, so students have more time to enjoy eating and catching up with friends. The shelter will also help them to get outdoors more often, which will boost their wellbeing. Want to know more about how you can find the perfect custom canopy?

Curved Roof Playground Canopy Added to Idsall School

At Idsall School, A&S Landscape installed a long covered walkway with our trademark Motiva Mono™. Measuring 10000mm x 4000mm this generous entrance canopy design creates a strong, yet attractive statement. It says, ‘we’re in charge here, we’ll look after you’ Finished in blue steelwork (RAL 5002) with opal roofing this entrance canopy works as a successful waiting area as well as giving a striking run to the reception.

The different sizes and lengths of entrance canopy can project a very different personality. A long, statement walkway like Idsall School now have, gives a real sense of confidence, you are protected and surrounded by this canopy far before you reach the actual entrance. Larger canopies like this can help project a strong and memorable image of the school before anybody has even stepped foot inside.

You are the story you tell people about what you do but you’re not always telling it with words, you often tell that story with imagery. A strong entrance canopy design will keep people dry but also tell them a lot about who are you and what you do. What does your building entrance say about you?

Welshampton Primary School in Ellesmere Add Fabric Tepee Canopy

Welshampton Primary School has lovely playing fields, but this outdoor area couldn’t always be used when the weather was poor. To help the school get more use out of the space, they wanted to add a canopy. The staff came straight to school shelter experts, A&S Landscape, who designed, manufactured and installed the canopy.

A fabric Maxima Tepee™ shelter was added to the playing field, measuring 6000mm x 6000mm. In order to help the canopy, blend in with the surroundings, an Opal Green colour was used for the fabric roof. This works perfectly with the subtle Slate Grey coloured steelwork and guttering. So that the school could get as much use out of the shelter, a waterproof PVC fabric was used.

Now the lucky pupils can play outside all year round, come rain or shine! This allows them to let off some steam and refresh ahead of their next lessons. The covered space could also be used by the teachers as an outdoor classroom, which would help to engage their classes and lead a memorable lesson. We always love getting to work with local schools and knowing that we have played a part in giving the pupils a fantastic educational experience.

Shade Sail Canopy at Sir John Talbot’s School

The Shade Sails are available in triangle or square fabric, overlapping or single layer, different colours, shade cloth or PVC, so the choices really are endless.

Hollinswood Primary School White Shelter

John Fletcher Primary School in Telford Create Cover in Play Area

That’s where outdoor shelters come in, being able to spend time playing outside, even when it’s raining. You won’t catch anybody frustrated at that idea. So when A&S Landscape was approached, it was to add some of that outdoor shelter magic to John Fletcher Primary School in Shropshire.

A Motiva Mono™ at 10450mm x 2600mm has made a huge difference here, adding a gorgeous canopy to an outdoor play area that means it can be used all year round. Finished in a dark forest green steelwork (RAL6005) with matching Alu-Tuff™ box profile guttering in Dura-Coat™ paint, this shelter looks smart and fits in with the buildings around it.

The truth is, no matter how well we hide it, it is frustrating when we are restricted. Having to stay indoors because of a little rain can be deeply annoying because as human beings we thrive on changes in scenery and access to natural light and fresh air. We crave variety but also need the benefit of the Vitamin D we receive (even on cloudy days). A good 20 minutes of access to natural light can have a powerful impact on our mood and it really is not the same just being near a big window!

To give more access to the outside, think strategically. Adding an outdoor playground canopy will undoubtedly provide opportunities for students to spend more time outside than they would without it. Unsure about what kind of design to go for? That’s ok, just take a look at our gallery of finished projects for some inspiration and if you have any questions just get in touch by filling out a contact form online.
