Severndale Special School in Shrewsbury was established in September 1995 following the reorganisation of provision for children with special educational needs in Shropshire. In September 2008, a large scale development was completed at the site on the Monkmoor Campus. The children and young people are aged 3 to 19 and have a range of learning difficulties.
A&S Landscape has carried out many other schemes including cycle storage at Severndale school over the past few years so we were the preferred choice when it came to designing a solution for one of the play areas. The unusual shape of the area was no problem to the bespoke Maxima Sails which can be manufactured to suit any configuration. A mixture of independent uprights and wall brackets all in galvanised and PPC white finish and fitted with high-quality stainless steel tension fittings were used to support the sails. The staff at Severndale School were involved in choosing the colours for the sails which complement the area perfectly. Posts pads were considered essential and in navy blue are a smart contrast to the white steelwork.
