Project – Enclosed outdoor dining canopy with roller shutter doors at school in Lincoln
Product – Motiva Linear
Requirement – Branston Community Academy in Lincoln wanted to add not one but three covered areas to their campus. The largest would create an outdoor dining space to help ease congestion in the dining hall at mealtimes. The dining area needed to be enclosed to ensure it was secure and offered optimal shelter from the elements.
Solution – A&S Landscape worked with the school to design a bespoke outdoor dining shelter constructed from steel and polycarbonate. The canopy measured 19552mm x 9131mm and was fitted with polycarbonate side panels and 2 x 2.5m roller shutter doors. The steelwork was Traffic Blue and the roofing Opal polycarbonate. The canopy created the secure, sheltered area that the school was looking for and they completed it by adding picnic benches for the students.
Result – The outdoor dining area at Branston Community Academy has created a fabulous dining and socialising area for students. The perfect solution for a growing school who found crowding at lunchtimes a problem. Now students can enjoy more seating space whatever the weather. Not only does the area protect the students from the wet weather, but it also shelters them from wind and protects them from UV rays on brighter days. A real all-year-round solution.
“My name is Andrew Pell, I am the Assistant Caretaker at Branston Community Academy in Lincolnshire. Our canopy was built in term time, the A&S Landscape team were aware of all health and safety considerations and there was no disruption to the school. The children find it very useful, it is really busy at lunchtimes every day and it is a great asset to the school really. You can sit out here in all weathers, even in the rain and the wind. The build quality is absolutely superb.”
