Queuing/waiting area canopy installed in Manchester
Posted on 03/08/2016
When St Thomas More RC College in Denton, Manchester got in touch with A&S we knew we’d be able to help by installing an outdoor shelter so the pupils could enjoy socialising with friends and eating their lunch in the fresh Manchester air.
Project – St Thomas More RC College
Product – Motiva Linear
Requirement – Fresh air can massively impact our mood and we all have experience of how a change of environment can shift our thinking.
So imagine if you’re running a school, a school that wants to inspire its students, then you’re going to be passionate about any opportunity to create new spaces, especially outdoors.
But often going outdoors has a simple issue, rain. Now it’s not a big issue but it does mean that after a series of studies in the past five years we know that children between 11 and 15 years old spend up to 85% of their time inside.
Which means they’re missing out on all of that natural light, fresh air and the benefits that go with it.
So when St Thomas More RC College in Denton, Manchester got in touch with A&S we knew we’d be able to help by installing an outdoor shelter so the pupils could enjoy socialising with friends and eating their lunch in the fresh Manchester air, which might not be as fresh as the air on top of Mount Everest but we’re told it’s basically the same stuff.
Solution – The Motiva Linear monopitch straight roof canopy fitted the bill perfectly. Working with their building contractors we designed this canopy with grey RAL 7000 steelwork and a clear roof to make the most of the light into the area, ensuring that any time those students spent time outdoors they’re getting a flood of Vitamin D. Working to the school’s tight deadlines was no problem and we completed the project in just 3 days.
Result – With an outdoor dining shelter installed, the students at St. Thomas More RC College in Denton are able to spend more time outside throughout the whole year, reaping the incredible benefits of time spent outdoors whilst offering the whole school an additional space to socialise.
Find Out More – We can install a Motiva Linear outdoor shelter for schools at almost any size and spend a lot of time making sure we get to know exactly what you want from your new space. Take a look at the full range of shelters here.
