Price is a big deal when you aren’t sure how something will look. So when The Beacon School got in touch looking for a canopy for the patio area outside the art rooms we were able to give them a little peek into their future. Utilising photorealistic visualisation software, we showed The Beacon School an image of exactly how their new canopy would look. Which meant by the time we installed this Motiva Wave™ Monopitch Canopy in striking red steelwork with opal roofing, they already knew what it would look like. The day they saw it for the first time must have felt just a little like déjà vu.
The result is a robust, attractive and quite striking design. Completed with a polycarbonate panel front that works with the stepped area outside the art rooms. A gorgeous addition to the space.
If you’re interested in outdoor shelters for schools but have also spent time googling ‘playground canopy prices uk’ then know this – as part of the design process, we produce outstanding, high-quality visualisations that mean you get to see the finished design before there has been any construction at all.
Brushwood Junior School in Chesham, Buckinghamshire needed two canopies to improve their facilities. They wanted a wash area canopy to adjoin the building so their pupils could easily keep up good hygiene in any weather, as well as a picnic area shelter so everyone could eat outdoors throughout the year. A&S Landscape was pleased to be contacted and endeavoured to make this project as beneficial as possible for all involved.
After discussions about various models, Brushwood Junior School chose the Motiva Mono™ for the covered wash area. Built to measure 5000mm X 3000mm and sporting Ultramarine Blue steelwork and an Opal roof, it was large enough to allow several children to wash their hands at once before entering the school – even in wet weather. Plus, the model was well-suited to being placed next to the building due to its asymmetric design. The staff decided on a 5000mm X 5000mm Maxima StarSail™ for the picnic area canopy, because they loved its modern look and its durability that would encourage more outdoor dining for years to come. It was installed with a Midnight Blue roof and Squirrel Grey steelwork to bring more colour to the school grounds.
Brushwood Junior School loves the new shelters. The wash area canopy helps everyone to maintain good hygiene and the picnic area canopy provides space for eating outside in all weathers. This institution – which strives to develop a passion for lifelong learning in its pupils – can now enjoy having wonderful new facilities, thanks to A&S Landscape.
A&S Landscape specialises in working within the education sector, and have worked on a number of projects where coloured polycarbonate has been used to great effect, these can be seen here. A&S Landscape added a smart new entrance canopy using a Motiva Linear straight roof canopy, installed at 5000mm x 5000mm, with Marine Blue (RAL5002) steelwork and ALU-Tuff (aluminium box profile) guttering and downpipes in a matching Dura-coat finish and coloured polycarbonate roofing.
It was the roofing choice that really pleased the children, they chose Mint, Lagoon and Moondust coloured polycarbonate roofing which gave the area a sense of fun. The result is a sheltered area which has the added benefit of generating bright stripes of light on the floor on sunny days. What fun!

Working alongside a leading builder our team constructed a straight polycarbonate roof canopy for Beechview Academy High Wycombe. The job involved the supply and installation of one Motiva™ monopitch straight roof canopy measuring 13000mm X 4000mm and included for our Alu-Tuff™ aluminium box profile guttering and downpipes and for coloured polycarbonate.
A large curved roof canopy was installed at Chesham Grammar School, measuring 15000mm X 15000mm. The Motiva Duo shelter was finished in Anthracite Grey steelwork, which complemented the surrounding buildings perfectly. The Opal polycarbonate roofing also provided protection from harmful UV rays, while allowing some sunlight through.

In combination with a leading builder A&S produced a straight polycarbonate roof canopy for Millbrook Combined School Mill End Road, High Wycombe. The full contract involved the supply and installation of one Motiva™ monopitch straight roof canopy measuring 8280mm X 3890/2000mm and included for our Alu-Tuff™ aluminium box profile guttering and downpipes which were coated in a matching Dura-coat™ colour finish.
Monkston Primary School had an area outside one of the classrooms which needed a replacement sail. They already had steelwork, so we were more than happy to provide them with a high-quality, waterproof shade sail to fit, measuring 7300 x 5220 x 7220 x 5120 x 6270 mm. A&S Landscape also offer a complete product; our Maxima range has a shade sail which can be configured in triangle or square designs.
Now, the children are even more keen to be outside. They can shade from the sunshine under the bright new canopy, or they can seek refuge from the wet weather and still have some outside playtime. The whole outdoor area has benefited from this new canopy. It looks smart, adds a new option for play and learning and means that the space can be used all year round.
