Djanogly Northgate Academy, New Basford, Nottingham, add Colourful School Canopy
Sycamore Academy wanted to encourage their pupils to cycle to school more regularly, so they improved their existing bike storage facilities. A&S Landscape worked with the school to design a shelter which met all of their requirements.
Ultramarine Blue - RAL NO. 5002
A straight roof canopy was installed at the campus, measuring 8000mm x 2000mm. Two cycle racks were added to the Motiva Linear, accommodating 20 bikes. The marine blue steelwork gives the shelter a pop of colour and works well with the clear polycarbonate roofing.
The bikes stored under the canopy can now be securely fixed to the racks and stay protected against the weather conditions too. This is a great way of encouraging the pupils to cycle to school, as they know their bikes will still be in the same condition at the end of the day. Already the shelters have been a very popular addition to the academy.
With calculations that by 2050 70% of girls and 55% of boys will be overweight or obese, there has never been a more pivotal time to cycle to school. Still, more carers than ever are driving their children to school. A Sustrans survey showed that whilst 12% of parents were driven to school when they were young, now 35% of children are driven to school, so what has changed?
As well as helping the environment, cycling to school promotes a healthy lifestyle and wellbeing and will have a huge positive impact on the whole of Sycamore Academy and the local area. It’s great that so many schools are recognising the importance of providing secure bike shelters. We’ve installed many cycle shelters at schools around the country, including St Mary’s Catholic Primary School.
