Sycamore Academy in Nottingham is a school where standards and expectations are very high. They take great pride in all they do. They needed to add some shelter on-site to a space between two school buildings. The sheltered area would offer protection to people as they moved around school.
A&S Landscape was delighted to discuss the canopy options available. Our Motiva range of canopies are steel and polycarbonate and they come in a number of different designs; straight roof, curved roof and cantilever. The canopy chosen was a Motiva Linear monopitch at 9300mm x 4500mm. This included aluminium gutters and downpipes which will manage the rainwater effectively.
The canopy has Marine Blue (RAL 5002) steelwork and clear polycarbonate roofing. It also has post pads for added safety. The children, staff and visitors at Sycamore Academy are no longer exposed to the elements as they move around school. Whether shade from the sunshine or shelter from the rain, the canopy is doing its job and looking very smart at the same time.
