Outdoor Play Canopy in Wolverhampton
Posted on 10/03/2017
St. Bartholomew's Primary School in Wolverhampton had a large space between two buildings that became a ghost town during the winter months, so they contacted A&S Landscape to do something about it!
Project – Motiva Mono creates outdoor canopy at St. Bartholomew’s Primary School
Product – Motiva Mono
Requirement – It’s the holy grail of space planning, finding a way to make a small and simple change that creates more space than you thought you had.
The truth is, we all have a little extra space that we don’t considered because when the weather is as unpredictable as it tends to be we find our outdoor spaces are rarely considered as genuine places for learning and play.
However, whilst they may not be ‘indoors’, that doesn’t mean we can’t put a cover on these spaces and make them available all year round.
St. Bartholomew’s Primary School in Wolverhampton had a large space between two buildings that became a ghost town during the winter months, so they contacted A&S Landscape to do something about it!
Solution – The solution was simply to bring that space back into play by putting a long-lasting and effective cover on it. We added a Motiva Mono curved roof canopy at a size of 8400mm x 5450mm to slot neatly between the two buildings. Finished in a brown (RAL 8007) steelwork, we also added matching Alu-Tuff™ box profile guttering in Dura-Coat™ paint along with opal polycarbonate roofing, giving a partially opaque look.
Result – The result is the resurrection of a previously unusable space that can now have children playing no matter what the weather whilst also providing additional space to host groups of students all year round.
Find Out More – If you’re looking around for more space for your students then it might be you’re looking in the wrong place. We have a range of outdoor learning canopies that can be customised to work perfectly for you, creating outdoor space that was not available before and meaning students can spend more time outside the whole year round.
