What was the project brief?

Abraham Moss

Abraham Moss Community School in Crumpsall, Manchester, were in need of additional dining space, and reached out to A&S Landscape for an outdoor solution. The school had a large space to work with and were looking to cover over 150 pupils, so they were excited to collaborate with our consultants to build an Exceptional Covered Space™.


What were our shelter solutions?

The final design features our expansive Motiva Duo™ canopy, measuring 20000mm X 10000mm. The school opted for a simplistic look, using an Anthracite Grey Duracoat™, for a chip-resistant colour that also protects against rust and corrosion. For the roof, our popular Opal polycarbonate roofing was used, which is extremely durable, and amplifies light. The finished design provides ample shelter for up to 240 students to socialise and dine, and the space could also be used to host events for the school and the local community.
