Poltair School in St Austell, Cornwall wanted to have a dining canopy installed in order to increase their lunchtime capacity. Their perfect model needed to be robust in the face of Cornish weather and be a functional facility all year round, from winter to summer months. A&S Landscape was thrilled to be contacted by this institution to take on this project and endeavoured to provide them with the ideal product.
The team at Poltair School had many options to choose from our huge range of products, but eventually settled on the Motiva Duo™. An Opal polycarbonate roof, Brown Red steelwork and Slate Grey guttering came together to create an attractive design, while the curved roof of the Motiva Duo™ canopy could withstand the unpredictable weather and allow the shelter to be used throughout the year with the help of handy side panels. What’s more, the 10000mm X 10000mm measurements offered the opportunity for many students to eat and socialise outdoors, as well as opening up space in the other facilities.
The children and staff love the new dining canopy. Lunchtime capacity is no longer an issue at this institution – which encourages learners to make positive contributions to the community – and they now have a versatile facility that could also be used in other ways, including providing some fantastic outdoor classroom ideas for outdoor learning! A&S Landscape was pleased to hear that their outdoor canopy would benefit this dedicated school for years to come. Get a quote for your project and use our online enquiry form or call 01743 444100.
Falmouth School in Falmouth, Cornwall faced the issue of typical Cornish weather and students not getting to spend enough time outside because of it. Situated in a town of natural beauty with fabulous coastal views, staff of the school were eager to increase opportunities to experience them. They decided to investigate adding a dining canopy to their outdoor areas in order to allow everyone to enjoy the fresh air, even in less desirable weather.
The Motiva Duo™ was chosen as the perfect solution, because of its modern, curved design and the fact that it would provide shelter for students all year round. The model was built to specifications of 10m X 6m, with grey steelwork to compliment the school buildings and Opal polycarbonate for the curved roof that they so liked. The latter would let in lots of light to benefit the students’ wellbeing while also offering UV protection in the summertime, as well as shielding them from the ever-present rain!
This design looks wonderful in the lush school grounds, and students are excited to enjoy breaks outdoors, no matter the season. Benches were installed beneath the dining canopy, which had the brilliant effect of increasing the number of children watching their friends compete in matches on the opposite sports field.
