What was the project brief?

University of Liverpool Entrance CanopyThe University of Liverpool wanted to find three reliable shelters to add to the entrances at its Chadwick Lecture Theatre. They wanted them to attractively signpost the ways in by promoting the institution’s dark blue colour scheme, come in different specifications that would perfectly suit the building, and effectively protect students and staff from bad weather when waiting to go inside for lectures and meetings. A&S Landscape was pleased to be contacted by the university and spent time figuring out the best way to meet its needs.

What was our entrance shelter solution?

Following talks about what the client wanted to get out of their canopies, A&S Landscape installed three Motiva Entrada™ models at the University of Liverpool. This product was ideal as it has an eye-catching angled roofline which provides maximum coverage in the rain at building entrances and makes the way in crystal clear. With varying specifications – one measured 4700mm X 1200mm and the other two measured 2800mm X 1200mm – and sporting Sapphire Blue steelwork and Lagoon Blue roofs, the shelters were carefully designed to suit the university’s requirements while proudly matching their colours. Plus, the high-quality canopy structure meant that anyone waiting to go into lectures wouldn’t have to worry about wind or rain.

What was the result of the canopies?

The three entrance shelters have been a real hit at the University of Liverpool. They have lifted the exterior of the Chadwick Lecture Theatre and are incredibly useful for students and staff alike when waiting to enter the building, in all seasons. The faculty particularly love the durability and modern look of the straight roofs on the canopies, as well as how they proudly show off the institution’s colours and have matching designs that create a unified feel in the outside spaces. A&S Landscape thought that this project went well and wishes the client all the best for the future.

How can shelters’ colour schemes benefit our customers?

Design is an important element of any canopy and the colours you choose can hugely affect the impact it has on your business or organisation. Colours can display and extend your branding to your clients, as well as create a cohesive experience from when they arrive outside your building to when you personally interact inside. They can reflect a particular feel that you want to create – for example, a Candy Red waterproof sail shade might encourage cheer when children are playing outdoors at school, and a Squirrel Grey and Mint entrance shelter might portray a classic professionalism that helps you to gain clients’ trust. Colour psychology is essential to consider too, as blue is known to be calming while black is associated with sophistication, and other colours influence people in a variety of ways.
