Product – Motiva Duo Double

It’s true! So when Kingsbury School in Tamworth called us in to replace an existing school walkway, we knew they were looking for the best outdoor dining shelter, one that would transform the space into a covered outside eating area fit for their school and we also knew the powerful effects it would have on students and teachers alike.
Kingsbury School isn’t just any school. Because they’re a smaller than average Secondary School they pride themselves on building close relationships with students and home, meaning they can help them develop their talents at a high level! That means they’re always looking for ways they can enrich their students education in and out of the classroom.
That being said, natural light is really important, boosting levels of Vitamin D, and after countless studies it’s been proven time and time again that people who spend more time outside experience lower chance of depression and anxiety.
Solution – Have you ever heard the expression, ‘you don’t buy a quarter inch drill bit, you buy a quarter inch hole?’ It’s the same here, when you buy our Motiva Double Canopy, it’s not really the structure you’re buying, it’s what it gives you. Kingsbury School weren’t really buying an outdoor dining canopy, they just wanted to give their students the chance to spend more quality, social time outside.
After researching the market and looking at their options they decided to go for a quality A&S Landscape covered area solution that would also look great.
After extensive design work and showing the school our proposals we got right to work, removing an existing walkway canopy and replacing it with a Motiva Double canopy at 18000mm X 12000mm, with Alu-Tuff™ guttering and downpipes in matching Dura-coat™ slate grey from our colours range which gave Kingsbury School exactly what they needed (and it looks really smart too).
Result – This work extended what had been a narrow walkway and provided a more expansive, more generous usable outdoor dining space for students, giving a chance to socialise outside and take advantage of all of those incredible benefits achieved from pupils eating outside.
