Warren Wood Primary School, Stockport add Entrance Canopy
Gentian Blue - RAL NO. 5010
Everybody knows what a large drain on space a host of pushchairs can be, but leaving them outside it not a great option when the weather is so unpredictable. That’s why the architect chose a Cyclo Buggy at 4000mm x 2500m in a smart Blue (RAL5010) with clear roofing and sides, with a robust, lockable door that means everything inside is both safe and dry.
Often nurseries struggle with space for prams and pushchairs when there is a surprising and smart solution. An outdoor shelter for prams and pushchairs can relieve congestion inside and gives parents the peace of mind that everything is secure.
The Department for Education has the challenge to create the 420,000 new school places that are needed between 2016 and 2021 and there are multiple ways that this can be achieved. New schools are being built, free schools are being funded and existing schools are obtaining capital funding to support, improve and expand facilities. With allowances being overstretched, one way that schools are using this capital funding is to make the most of their outside space. Whether to build more classrooms or to add sheltered spaces which can have a great deal of different uses.

“The installation of the Buggy Store at the Nursery is a good asset and looks great. All the parents can store their prams and pushchairs in a safe dry area whilst visiting the Nursery. A&S Landscape was excellent from inquiry to installation. A top-notch service.”
Architect, Shropshire Council – Alverley CP School
