Treloar School in Hampshire Add Outdoor Canopy for Staff Breaks

  • Size: 10000mm X 5000mm
  • Steelwork:
    • Squirrel Grey - RAL NO. 7000

  • Roof:
    • Opal

Motiva Duo™

The project resulted in an attractive canopy cover that added something meaningful to the school. Staff can now enjoy their well-earned breaks outside, even if it’s raining, and multiple people can socially distance beneath the shelter.

What was the project brief?

Treloar School in Holybourne, Hampshire decided to add a canopy to their facilities in order to create a new outdoor rest area that could be enjoyed in all weathers. It would be used primarily by staff relaxing and eating snacks outside on their breaks, and it needed to allow them to socially distance while undercover. They also wanted the canopy to have a sleek design and be used similarly by students eager for some fresh air.

A&S Landscape was contacted by the school and was determined to provide them with the right shelter for their needs.

What was our canopy solution?

Freestanding canopy we installed at Treloar's SchoolA&S Landscape installed a large Motiva Duo™ on-site at Treloar School, following discussions with the team there about their requirements and vision for the project. They chose Squirrel Grey steelwork and an Opal polycarbonate roof for a modern look that wasn’t too obstructive next to their existing buildings. The Duo™ has a duopitch (symmetric) roof where both sides are at the same height, which is ideal to cover a rest area. What’s more, the curved design looks aesthetically pleasing and offers practical protection from the elements throughout the year. The outdoor shelter was built to measure 10000mm X 5000mm to provide plenty of space for staff to safely distance from each other while taking their breaks outdoors, or for students to spend some time outside.

What was the result of their new curved roof shelter?

The project resulted in an attractive canopy cover that added something meaningful to the school. Staff can now enjoy their well-earned breaks outside, even if it’s raining, and multiple people can socially distance beneath the shelter. This is a fantastic example of how school canopies can help teachers and students alike to fit more fresh air into their days all year round. The team at Treloar School loves the subtle design and the canopy could even be used as an outdoor classroom gazebo. A&S Landscape is glad that it will help them to take a breather from teaching and looking after their students.

How can spending time outdoors help school staff to relax?

Curved roof shelter we installed at Dean Trust ArdwickTeaching can often be a stressful job, so it’s essential to find ways to relax every day. Installing a shelter at your school so staff can have a place to unwind or eat their lunch in the fresh air year-round is a fantastic way of working towards this, but how does being outside help?

  1. Stress – natural scenes such as rolling countryside or birds flitting from tree to tree gently capture your attention and calm your nerves.
  2. Mental fatigue – teachers frequently have to balance many tasks at once in the classroom, which can be exhausting for the mind. Spending time outdoors has been shown to restore mental abilities like short-term memory, so fitting ten minutes of fresh air into your day can help to revive you and contribute to your work performance.
  3. Connection – nature can remind you of a sense of belonging within the wider world that can be incredibly comforting, especially on difficult days. Something as simple as feeling the wind on your face or watching wildlife can give you a better perspective on your troubles and help you to relax.

Spending time in the great outdoors – whether it’s a hike in the woods or just sitting outside on your lunch break – can be really beneficial for wellbeing and encouraging you to relax.
