Play Area Shelter in Nuneaton
Posted on 08/07/2016
Our Motiva Linear with straight roof canopy was exactly what the school needed, but as often happens in real life they needed a few adjustments to make sure it fit to perfection.
Project – Our Lady of the Angels Catholic Infant School & Nursery
Product – Motiva Linear
Requirement – What price creating space out of nowhere? But also, what price to produce an additional classroom out of nowhere?
And yet schools always have this opportunity, it’s there, waiting. By adding an outdoor covered shelter or playground classroom extension they bring a whole range of benefits to their students.
Messy art projects and music lessons so loud they can’t always be conducted inside can have a new home instantly and outdoor play has a range of other benefits too. Fresh air, natural light and just the opportunity to change spaces can help to invigorate learning and keep students fully engaged.
It just requires a little imagination, something that is in abundance at Our Lady of the Angels Catholic Infant School & Nursery in Nuneaton who contacted A&S looking to create an additional flexible learning space with a canopy outside a classroom as well as a sizeable free-flow play area.
Solution – Our Motiva Linear with straight roof canopy was exactly what the school needed, but as often happens in real life they needed a few adjustments to make sure it fit to perfection. The Motiva Linear needed to be wider at one side to accommodate the recess into the school entrance, so we designed the playground canopy shelter 3000mm at its narrowest point and 5000mm wide to cover the recess and the result is a beautifully constructed outdoor teaching space shelter that provides the extra learning zone and play area they were looking for. And if you’re only here for the details then take note, the steelwork colour is Grey RAL 7000 and the roof colour is Moondust.
Result – The play area has since been fully resourced as part of the outdoor project and the School’s Business Manager was delighted with the results, saying in her review ‘The quality of the canopy is lovely, it’s very simple and exactly what we wanted’.
