A bespoke Motiva steel and polycarbonate dining canopy structure was chosen and installed at the site. The steelwork was finished in a modern Iron Grey RAL colour, which complements the surrounding buildings perfectly. The Opal roofing lets sunlight through while protecting the students from harmful UV rays. A glass side was also included, to offer extra protection from the weather.
The finished canopy meets all of Whitecross High School’s needs. The students have a sheltered area where they eat lunch, socialise with friends and relax in the fresh air. The shelter has also relieved pressure from the dining hall, providing a cost-effective solution. Even during rain, wind or sun, the students can enjoy their lunch outside in the canopy.
Our design, manufacturing and installation process allows us to create bespoke canopies to suit your specific needs. We can manufacture to any given dimension and accommodate specific preferences. From covered dining areas to playground shelters, we can design a canopy for your exact requirements. View our gallery to get inspiration or see what past clients have said about us.
From time to time we come in and comfortably deal with the whole thing, from setting the table, right through to picking a movie everybody can watch when they’re too full to move. That means, flooring, canopy, fencing – everything. And we love these projects because it gives us the chance to install something that has our mark all over it. Which means we know it will last a long time and make a powerful impact.
So, when Ledbury Primary School got in touch, looking for dinner, we put our aprons on and got to work. From a full and thorough design process, through to manufacture and installation, we oversaw every single moment of this Motiva Duo™ canopy from the moment Ledbury Primary School decided they wanted it to the moment it began to be used.
Coming in at 9000mm x 6000mm in a blue steelwork with opal roofing, this canopy also benefits from the addition of rubber play surface (with A&S Landscape handling the full groundworks), to protect little limbs from scrapes and falls, as well as HDPE fencing in a bright colour scheme.
The result is a transformative space. That can be easy to say but just like that dinner we laid on can give you a heap of energy, so can space like these. Because when we give space to something, we give it importance and here we gave permission to play and learn outside. This outdoor learning and play space has made a huge impact on Ledbury Primary School and will last them for many, many years.

Infilling building recesses is about taking areas that already have walls to either two or even three sides and by adding a roof, making it into an outdoor room. It’s a lot less expensive than adding any other type of new learning space but ultimately can have the same effect. Year round, all-weather space you can use for anything you like. Installing a Motiva Linear™ Monopitch canopy in a complementary colour, in conjunction with the surrounding walls meant we were able to provide St. Peter’s Primary School with a smart and versatile sheltered area for them to use for a variety of learning and play activities.
The result is transformative, taking a space that was full of potential, we helped St. Peters to unlock it with just one simple addition. This gives them a versatile area that increases the size of the school footprint and gives new social, learning and play space for their students. Whether there is an unloved area on your campus that you’d like to turn into outdoor learning space or perhaps you would like to discuss some ideas, please get in touch.
