Outdoor dining area adds to school in Essex
Posted on 03/08/2017
An underused area outside the dining hall at R A Butler Academy has been given a new lease of life by the addition of a smart dining canopy.
Project – Outdoor canopy creates new dining area at R A Butler Academy in Saffron Waldon
Product – Motiva Linear
Requirement – An underused area outside the dining hall at R A Butler Academy has been given a new lease of life by the addition of a smart dining canopy. More space for students to eat their meals as well as and sit and socialise, has been created by adding a lovely Linear canopy to the courtyard area.
Solution – The Motiva Linear canopy was installed at 10.2x5m, with Mid Blue (RAL5010) steelwork and Opal roofing. The colours matched perfectly the blue of another one of the school buildings, meaning that this new addition went seamlessly in to the design of the area. The canopy is not completely enclosed but it provides the necessary shade and shelter to make it a usable space all year round. Just as R A Butler specified.
Result – Space is always at a premium in schools, never more so than at the moment, so if you can increase the footprint of your school and its facilities by adding a cleverly designed canopy then this has to be a great option. Where courtyard areas already exist, particularly when they are adjacent to dining halls or classrooms, what better way to extend your space than by building some shelter.
