What was the project brief?

Trinity Academy Halifax in West Yorkshire wanted to install a dining canopy in one of their outdoor areas. This was because children were struggling for space in their existing dining hall and they were planning to take on even more students. The school also needed the dining shelter to be enclosed; their West Yorkshire location encounters large amounts of both snow and wind, so anyone enjoying lunch outside would need to be protected from the elements. Plus, an enclosed canopy would enable the space to be used throughout the year. This thoughtful institution got in touch with A&S Landscape to find a shelter that was practical and good value for money.

What was our dining shelter solution?

Dining shelter we fitted at Trinity Academy HalifaxAfter carefully considering all the options, Trinity Academy Halifax decided on a bespoke version of the Motiva Linear™ model as it best met their range of needs. A&S Landscape’s impressive capacity for everything from design to installation meant that they could accommodate the school’s specific requirements with such a shelter, and they could choose from hundreds of configurations. The canopy was built to specifications of 20600mm X 8800mm with side panels and door to end elevation to create the enclosed space that the students so needed. The monopitch (asymmetric) straight roof was ideal for the dining area because it has one side higher than the other, and the shelter was large enough to reduce pressure on existing dining facilities while shielding those inside from the Yorkshire weather. Trinity Academy Halifax also chose to top their new canopy with an Opal roof and to colour the steelwork Anthracite Grey. This was a great decision as the resulting design was aesthetically pleasing and blended into the other school buildings.

What was the result of the enclosed canopy?

Everyone at Trinity Academy Halifax adores their enclosed dining area canopy. There’s enough space to accommodate the rising number of students and it looks fantastic! Now children can enjoy lunchtimes and break times in a new enclosed outdoor space during any season without worrying about wind, rain or snow. The school team thought that their bespoke model was fantastic value for money and they love its functionality. It could even encourage some outdoor classroom ideas when not being used as a dining facility. A&S Landscape wishes Trinity Academy Halifax all the best for the future and was thrilled to hear that the shelter had gone down so well with children and teachers alike.

What are the benefits of installing an enclosed canopy?

Shelter with sides we designed for Avon Valley SchoolThere is a whole range of reasons why you should consider our enclosed shelters. Here are just a few.

  • They are a cost-effective method of adding an enclosed area to your facilities – you can simply add side panels and doors to your shelter instead of buying a more expensive, purpose-built enclosed structure.
  • They are multi-functional – these canopies are popular with schools because they make fantastic outdoor dining areas that can be used in all weathers, and they reduce pressure on other lunchtime facilities. However, enclosed shelters can also be used to store equipment, as an outdoor classroom uk or as a new play area.
  • They provide many options for personalisation – you can cover the sides of your canopy with polycarbonate or glass, install electrically operated roller shutter doors, and choose from a variety of colours including printed polycarbonate for which you can make your own design!
