Outdoor shelters in Preston
Posted on 15/02/2017
When A&S Landscape were contacted to install some outdoor shelter at Weeton County Primary School we knew the impact it would have.
Project – Motiva Linear adds outdoor shelters to Weeton Country Primary School
Product – Motiva Linear
Requirement – Do you ever just look around and think ‘if only I had a little extra space’.
Our experience is that space is the number one resource that schools would love to have access to but the cost of extensions is high which can rule it out as an option.
But with restrictions comes creativity and there are solutions that can make a powerful impact on your school without costing the earth.
An outdoor playground canopy will extend the reach of a classroom by offering shelter from the rain that makes it accessible all year round. There are also certain types of activities that benefit from being run outdoors, from messy art work to loud and entertaining music sessions.
So when A&S Landscape were contacted to install some outdoor shelter at Weeton County Primary School we knew the impact it would have.
Solution – Installing generous outdoor shelters to three elevations at Weeton County Primary School meant that several classrooms were extended to have useable outdoor space.
Installing Motiva Linears in a range of sizes, from 2870mm x 2000mm to 33700mm x 4000mm, we finished each shelter in white steelwork (RAL 9016) with Alu-Tuff™ box profile guttering in matching Dura-Coat™ paintwork. Opal roofing also means that direct sunlight is cut down, helping with temperature control in the classrooms during the summer.
Result – The result is space. Space that already existed but has been repurposed to offer a useable option all year round.
This gives Weeton County Primary School the opportunity to run a whole host of sessions that might have been difficult to run in the past and makes sure their children can spend more time outside, whatever the weather.
