Dowdales School in Cumbria add Covered Walkway

  • Size: 21000m X 5000mm
  • Steelwork:
    • Squirrel Grey - RAL NO. 7000

  • Roof:
    • Opal

Motiva Mono™

Dowdales School in Cumbria wanted to provide protection for their students as they moved between buildings during the day. The school identified a curved roof canopy as a cost-effective solution and contacted A&S Landscape for help.

A curved roof shelter was installed at the school, measuring 21m x 5m. The Motiva Mono features subtle Squirrel Grey steelwork which works perfectly with the surrounding area. The Opal polycarbonate sheeting used on the roof blocks harmful UV rays, so the students can safely spend time outside during the summer months too.

The new covered walkway has greatly improved the student’s experience at Dowdales School. The shelter can also be used as a dining area too. With picnic tables added under the cover, the students have a choice of where to sit with their food, relieving pressure from the dining hall. They’ll also be able to spend time in the fresh air during the school day, which will benefit their wellbeing too.

The covered area is also being used as a social space during breaks. The students love their dedicated space outside they can use all-year-round and we’ve been told that it’s a very popular spot. Before exams, it could also be the perfect place to relax and stay calm, away from the busy classrooms and corridors.

“The students are loving the canopy. It is their new place to hang out.”
