Humberston Academy wanted to refurbish an area of the campus to create a dining and teaching area. A&S Landscape helped the academy to find the perfect canopy which met all of their requirements.
A large curved roof canopy from the Motiva range was installed in the internal quad area. The Motiva Duo canopy measures 10000mm x 10000mm, so plenty of covered space has been created. The opal polycarbonate roofing offers protection against harmful UV rays while allowing some sunlight through. Plus, the slate grey steelwork complements the surrounding buildings perfectly.
During lunchtimes, the dining area canopy is used by the students to eat their lunch. They can now enjoy some fresh air, which helps them to relax and refresh ahead of their next lessons. This also relieves pressure from the existing dining hall, as there is now more seating space which can be used all-year-round.
The headteacher also uses the new canopy to teach underneath. This alternative learning environment will help to engage the students as they get the opportunity to learn outside of the four walls of the classroom. There’s no need to reschedule lessons around the weather thanks to the shelter.
