Queen Eleanor’s C of E Junior School wanted to create more seating options at lunchtimes and make better use of the school grounds. The staff decided to install a dining area canopy and chose A&S Landscape to complete the project.
A large Maxima Tepee structure was added to an area of the school, measuring a total of 10000mm x 10000mm. The canopy was made with a waterproof PVC fabric roof, so the school could use the shelter in all weather conditions. The ivory coloured roof complemented the opal green steelwork to create a very striking effect. Queen Eleanor’s C of E Junior School also choose to include green post pads to offer extra protection for the pupils.
The tepee structure has been a huge success and made a positive impact on the entire school. At lunchtimes, pupils can sit outside to enjoy their food in the fresh air. This not only relieves pressure from the dining hall but allows the pupils to relax and refresh properly. Because of the size of the canopy, the school has added several dining benches to the area.
The shelter could also be used as a study area, or a place to socialise during break times. Teachers could even take lessons outside without having to worry about the weather.
A&S Landscape offers a range of dining area canopies, with curved, straight or fabric roofs. Our team will help you every step of the project to ensure you get the best results. Browse our gallery for inspiration or get in touch today on 01743 444100.
