The Co-operative in Warwickshire Add Glass Entrance Canopy

The Glendon Co-operative project was more out of the ordinary for A&S Landscape than our usual projects.

What was the project brief?

The Co-operative were partners in a brand-new development on the site of a former pub in Grendon, Warwickshire. Formerly The Boot Inn, the site was transformed into a fabulous community store and drive-thru coffee shop. The Co-operative was at the centre of this development which also included the building of 56 new homes.

With an already defined brand, well known throughout the UK, The Co-operative had a very clear idea of what they wanted. While the store would utilise an existing building, they wanted something that would welcome customers to the store and fit with their already well-recognised styling.

What was our glass entrance canopy solution?

Glass entrance canopy we made for The Co-operative Grandon StoreThe Glendon Co-operative project was more out of the ordinary for A&S Landscape than our usual projects. Typically, we work with fabric and polycarbonate coverings rather than glass canopies. However, understanding exactly what The Co-operative wanted, we were able to devise a glazed canopy design that met with their specifications exactly.

The solution involved a steel and glass porch canopy based on a wall-mounted design. While we do offer a range of products including the ‘Entro’ design in our Motiva range, the requirements of the Glendon Co-operative meant that their design was completely bespoke.

We are often called upon to help clients from different sectors who need very specific custom canopies. With our wealth of experience and craftsmanship, and our high-quality products that deliver on customer expectations, we are able to identify custom canopy architecture designs to meet even the most exacting specifications.

In the case of The Co-operative, we were able to deliver a door canopy supplied and fitted exactly to their requirements. Finished with silver-coloured steelwork and a clear, glazed canopy roof, it provided the store with an overhead shelter solution, and a splendid focal point at the entrance to the shop.

What was the result of the glass entrance canopy?

The final result was a completely customised contemporary glass canopy. Sleek in design, with bespoke wall-mounted fittings, it matched in perfectly with The Co-Operative’s existing branding.

For those now using the store, there is a welcoming entrance which signposts them to the shop inside. It is also a harbour from the elements, so that those entering the store have the chance to wipe their feet, put down their umbrellas, and shake off excess water on rainy days.

About the client

The Co-operative is a well-known UK brand with its roots based on people working together to deliver a benefit for all. They were the first to stock degradable carrier bags and were at the forefront of banning the use of some common pesticides in the production of fresh produce. In addition, they were at the front of the Fairtrade Foundation, being the first to introduce their own Fairtrade brands, including chocolate and tea.

The Co-operative’s ethics have been one of its major draws for many customers. As we become much more aware of where our food comes from, and the impact that it has on the environment around us, it isn’t difficult to see why movements such as Fairtrade are so attractive to its customers.

Why choose A&S Landscape for your glass entrance canopy?

The Co-Operative Entrance CanopyA&S Landscape works across a wide range of sectors, and each client that we help has something different that they want from their custom canopy solution. With your input and a clear picture of what you are envisaging from your canopy cover, we draw up a picture of what the end result will look like across a range of different options. From a glass door canopy to a timber structure with a very defined, stand-alone purpose, there are a vast number of ways in which to tailor your specific design.

The choice can seem overwhelming, but with the guided support of our experts, the right design for your project can easily be identified.

Why choose a wall-mounted canopy?

The shelter solution chosen by the Glendon Co-Operative was designed in a way that avoided the need for steel canopy poles. This modern approach to canopy installation delivers a sleek finish, with the overhead canopy suspended above. Finished in glass, this looks superb and does not affect the light entering the premises below.

This type of design is often seen in public shelters, for example at bus stops, where space on the pavement is limited. With supports for the steel shelter frame on one side only, this opens up the design and leaves the right of way clear for passing pedestrians. It is a design that works really well for a range of different uses.
