Maxima Tepee™

Hedgewood School caters for primary school pupils, the majority of which have Autism, so it was important that the large canopy created a safe space on the site.

What was the project brief?

Hedgewood School wanted in West London wanted to get better use out of their outside space by adding a weather-proof cover. A&S Landscape, school shelter experts, were asked to help with this project by designing a canopy to cover the area. As a large area was to be covered, it was important to the school that the structure would be aesthetically pleasing and work with the surrounding environment.

What was our fabric tepee solution?

Playground tepee we designed for Hedgewood SchoolAfter careful planning, our design team suggested we use our Maxima Tepee™ structure. At an impressive size of 10m x 10m, the shelter has created a large amount of covered space for the school to use. The tepee was the perfect option for this project as the design uses a minimal number of uprights. Hedgewood School caters for primary school pupils, the majority of which have Autism, so it was important that the large canopy created a safe space on the site. The school also choose to add post protection pads for an added layer of safety.

To match the school’s colour scheme, the steelwork frame colour was finished in a smart Moss Green. The fabric of the tepee was made from a Sky Blue material which works perfectly with the surrounding environment. So that the canopy can be used all year round, the fabric roof was made with a waterproof PVC material.

What was the result of their school shelter?

The young pupils of Hedgewood School love the new addition to the playground, and it has quickly become a very popular spot. The tensile fabric roof shelter has created not only the perfect playing space but the perfect learning environment too. Teachers can now take their classes outside in an alternative learning space, which will help to engage the pupils and create a memorable lesson.

The tepee has also provided a brilliant sensory environment which will aid the pupils with their learning and development. And the waterproof fabric means that the space can be used come rain or shine.
