Outdoor Dining Canopy at The Coopers’ and Coborn School in London
Posted on 03/12/2018
The area created allowed for lots of seating and the students can use the area flexibly, for dining, studying or socialising as they wish.
Project – Large covered school outdoor dining area at Upminster school
Product – Motiva Duo
Requirement – The Coopers’ and Coborn school recently celebrated their 475th anniversary. A fantastic school with a rich and interesting history. Pupils wanted to have an outdoor seating area to expand the dining provision so A&S Landscape was delighted to help out with some design options.
Solution – A large underused space was identified and a curved roof canopy from our Motiva Duo range was measured. The final size was 16000mm x 8000mm and the chosen steelwork colour was White (RAL 9010), with an Opal roof. The area created allowed for lots of seating and the students can use the area flexibly, for dining, studying or socialising as they wish.
Result – An outdoor canopy can create a year-round space for pupils and take the pressure off communal areas such as dining halls when schools grow. This canopy had a polycarbonate roof which offers both shade and shelter. Fabric roofs are available in two materials, shade cloth, which will protect from UV rays, and PVC, which will offer shelter from the rain as well as shade. This canopy looks fantastic and has made a big difference to students at The Coopers’ and Coborn School.
