Park Gate Primary School in Coventry Cover Parent Waiting Area
Imperial College London didn’t have an area where pushchairs could be stored at their early years centre. A&S Landscape worked with the staff to design a shelter which would provide protection from the weather.
Anthracite Grey - RAL NO. 7016
A Cyclo Buggy was installed at the nursery, outside one of the buildings. Measuring 6000mm X 2800mm, there is plenty of room for multiple pushchairs to be stored at once. The opal polycarbonate roofing works perfectly with the anthracite grey steelwork to create a subtle, modern effect. You can download the Cyclo Buggy brochure to see more information about this popular shelter.
From wet wintery mornings to hot sunny afternoons, the shelter will provide protection from the elements. The hinged doors allow the staff to fully close off the store, so no rain can get inside and no prams can be blown around in the wind.
As we know, the school-age population has been expanding. The count of five to ten year old children in primary schools increased by 446,000 (13%) between 2010 and 2016.
The Department for Education has the difficult task to create the 420,000 new school places that are needed between 2016 and 2021 and there are lots of ways that this can be completed. New schools are being created, free schools are being funded and existing schools are being given capital funding to preserve, improve and enlarge facilities. With funds being overstretched, one way that schools are using this capital funding is to make the most of their outside space. Whether to build additional classrooms or to add sheltered spaces which can have no end of different uses.

Already the store has been a hugely popular addition to the centre, as parents can now leave their buggy there during the day knowing it will be safe and secure. Over the holidays, the shelter could also be used to store play equipment, saving valuable storage space inside. The early years centre prides itself on how they nurture and inspire their children, and so they only want the best facilities for their grounds.
A&S Landscape has worked on a range of projects across the UK, from nurseries to universities. We also installed a large buggy store at Rocket Pool Nursery in the West Midlands and at Alverley CP School in Shropshire. Our products can be used for a variety of purposes, including covered entrances and walkways, dining areas and bike shelters.
