What was the project brief?

Church of the Ascension C of E Primary School in Wall Heath wanted to find a canopy that could be placed next to their building and provide their pupils with a large, covered outdoor space in which to enjoy break times. The staff thought that it should be colourful, uplifting and durable, as well as safe for the energetic children when they were playing outside. They got in touch with A&S Landscape and quickly began discussing the best way to move forward with this project.

What was our multicoloured canopy solution?

Playground canopy we made for Church of the AscensionSeveral models suited their requirements, but Church of the Ascension C of E Primary School eventually decided that they liked the Motiva Linear™ the best. Built to spacious custom specifications of 17385mm X 5000mm, the shelter fit nicely along the length of the school building to offer immediate protection for those stepping outdoors. The Motiva Linear™ is perfectly suited to this placement, thanks to its monopitch asymmetric roof. Plus, the Traffic Blue steelwork and multicoloured polycarbonate that the school team picked out really made a statement and brought the space to life – the roof featured Lagoon Blue, Mandarin, Violet, Daffodil and Poppy Red! Along with post protectors, this model created a canopy cover that could guarantee safe, dry break times for years to come.

What was the result of the shelter?

The children enjoy getting more fresh air when they’re not in class – and even when they are, as the multicoloured outdoor canopy also provides an excellent place for alternative learning! The bright design adds something special to the look of the primary school and the reliable structure offers a new space that can be used in all weathers. A&S Landscape was pleased that Church of the Ascension C of E Primary School has discovered so many uses for their shelter and that it will bring more colour to the daily lives of their staff and pupils.

Communication between head office and ourselves was always effective and prompt.”

How can multicoloured shelters improve the facilities and appeal of schools?

Colourful roof shelter we installed at Zaytouna Primary SchoolWhen there are so many options available, it can be difficult to choose just one colour for your shelter design. However, thanks to the availability of multicoloured polycarbonate roofs, you don’t have to! You can combine several different shades to create the ideal look and complement your school’s colour scheme and buildings. This will lift the architecture and make a statement to parents about your dedication to improving facilities.

These canopies have many applications, from dining shelters that help to reduce pressure on indoor facilities to playground shelters that can stimulate youngsters’ imagination and socialisation. And, the options truly are endless when it comes to colour combinations to impress prospective pupils – whether you’re after a classic look of Opal and Mint, or a more vibrant design of Foxglove and Daffodil.
