Saddleworth School needed to find a solution to the massive queues they were having in their dining hall during lunchtimes. A&S Landscape helped the school find a cost-effective shelter solution.
A straight roof canopy was installed, measuring a total of 11000mm X 9000mm. The Motiva Linear features mid blue steelwork with opal polycarbonate roofing. In addition, a fabric umbrella canopy was also added to the school site. The white steelwork on the Maxima Umbrella contrasts with the striking victoria blue fabric colour.
The new shelters are used as an alternative seating area, giving the students more options during lunchtimes. They can now enjoy some fresh air outdoors, leaving them refreshed ahead of their next lessons. The canopies were also built near the food kiosks the school added, encouraging the use of these additional serving areas. These outside areas can be used all-year-round, no matter the weather conditions.
Now the existing dining hall has been greatly relieved of pressure and strain, and the students of Saddleworth School can get their lunch much quicker. This has meant that the school has been able to reduce the time of the lunch break, dedicating more time to lessons.
With intake figures rising, more and more schools are choosing to install canopies to create new dining areas. A&S Landscape offers a range of designs and our expert team can help you to choose the right option. Browse our gallery for inspiration or get in touch today on 01743 444100.
