Outdoor Shelter in Reading

Posted on 10/02/2017

EP Collier Primary
EP Collier Primary School worked alongside a local contractor who brought in A&S Landscape to provide some outdoor shelter that just happened to offer some unexpected benefits.

Project – Motiva Linear creates outdoor shelter at EP Collier Primary School

Product – Motiva Linear

Requirement – A great outdoor canopy can do a number of things.

It can offer shelter from the rain, shade from direct sunlight and create useable space where there was none before, making playground areas available all year round so that outdoor learning can take place.

Equally, a well placed outdoor classroom canopy can help with temperature control, stopping direct sunlight from blasting in through windows and keeping a school cool in the hot summer months.

But perhaps the greatest feature of an outdoor canopy is that it can do all of these things at once. Whilst adding a covered walkway, you’ve also created a new outdoor learning area. When adding a waiting shelter, you’ve also created a little temperature control. There are many benefits within one single shelter.

EP Collier Primary School worked alongside a local contractor who brought in A&S Landscape to provide some outdoor shelter that just happened to offer some unexpected benefits.

Solution – We installed a Motiva Linear monopitch straight roof canopy at 15909/11925mm x 2500mm in pale grey (RAL 7040) steelwork with clear polycarbonate roofing. Alu-Tuff™ aluminium box profile guttering and downpipes were provided in matching Dura-Coat™ finish.

Result – The result is an outdoor shelter that affords a little extra protection from the rain, a place to wait in inclement weather. It also offers an additional benefit; with direct sunlight being partially cut out the temperature of the classrooms inside is kept cooler on hot, clear days.

It can be a very useful exercise to work through our gallery of completed projects to get some inspiration and also take a look at the specs for the Motiva Linear here.
