The University of Reading was converting an area of the campus and decided to create a social study space for their students. A&S Landscape was brought on board to design, manufacture and install the shade sails.
Three Maxima Sails were added to an area of the campus, each measuring 4000mm X 4000mm. The university chose two lava red and one charcoal grey sail which contrast against each other to create a striking effect. The slate grey steelwork also works well with the fabric colours and the surrounding buildings.
Underneath the shade sails, the university added several benches. This means the area can be used as a dining, study or social space. A great option if revision groups want to work in the fresh air or refresh before an exam. Whether it is too cold or hot outside, the sails will help to protect the area from the elements, meaning it can be used throughout the year.
The University of Reading has transformed the once disused space into a popular area which is used by students and staff. Installing a canopy is a cost-effective method of creating a new space which can be used throughout the year. We offer a range of designs, which can be modified and made to your exact specifications.
