The Chantry School in Worcestershire Add Large Dining Area Canopy
The Trust was thrilled with its three ambulance bay shelters; NHS workers no longer have to worry about the weather when dropping off or picking up patients in the rain, so they can stay dry and comfortable at the site and devote more energy respectively towards care and their health.
Anthracite Grey - RAL NO. 7016
University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust at Leicester Royal Infirmary needed a set of modern, functional ambulance bay canopies to protect patients and staff when arriving at or leaving the site. They had to keep out the rain and wind so the workers could focus on their jobs and not on protecting vulnerable people from the weather, and ensure the latter had as pleasant an experience as possible before or after their hospital visit. This customer is one of the largest and busiest NHS Trusts in the country, serving a million residents in Leicestershire and Rutland, so it was essential that the shelters suited their buildings perfectly and didn’t disrupt daily life at the facility while they were being installed. They approached us for help.
We worked closely with the client to create a bespoke canopy solution that worked exactly how they needed it to. The result of this was that we added three of our Motiva Cantilever™ shelters to their site, which had clever positioning of their uprights so ambulances could easily be driven underneath them. Anthracite Grey steelwork and Opal roofs provided a simple but contemporary feel and we installed the structures on live facilities by constantly keeping everyone’s needs in mind, meaning they could continue their hard work with minimal interruption. Also, the canopies were immediately ready for the tasks of shielding ambulances from wet weather on arrival in their bays or when staff were about to drive off to a new destination, making their life a little easier.
The Trust was thrilled with its three ambulance bay shelters; NHS workers no longer have to worry about the weather when dropping off or picking up patients in the rain, so they can stay dry and comfortable at the site and devote more energy respectively towards care and their health. The bespoke matching designs look smart and practical, and the team was grateful that we were able to both adapt them to their requirements and install them efficiently while they still did their essential jobs. We thoroughly enjoyed working on this project with this client and knowing that our products will assist life in their community for years to come.
Canopies can be incredibly useful at healthcare sites because they offer solutions to problems that such important and bustling clients need solving quickly and effectively. Covered walkways can create defined routes between buildings while making them usable in all weathers, so visitors can find their way more easily around more complex facilities. Our shade sails are wonderful for brightening up outdoor spaces, such as relaxation or green areas for improving wellbeing, and offering relief from the sun in warmer months. What’s more, cycle shelters can be of great benefit to locally-based staff as they can safely store their bikes there and the structures can encourage people to make their way to work in a way that is better for the environment.
