A&S Landscape was thrilled to be asked to undertake this large scale project. Having worked in the education sector for more than 40 years, we are always mindful of the requirements of school, staff and students.
Project – Modular school buildings linked by covered walkway in Cumbria
Product – Motiva Linear
Requirement – Newman Catholic School in Cumbria, was destroyed by floods during Storm Desmond and 630 children were relocated to temporary classrooms on the site of a former primary school nearby.
The modular classrooms required covered walkways, to ensure that children and staff were able to move between them whatever the weather, remaining dry at all times of the year.
A&S Landscape was thrilled to be asked to undertake this large scale project. Having worked in the education sector for more than 40 years, we are always mindful of the requirements of school, staff and students. A gallery of our projects can be seen here.
Solution – A&S Landscape designed a bespoke covered walkway using a Motiva Linear straight roof canopy, installed at 68358mm x 8000mm, with steelwork in RAL (Grey 7000) and ALU-Tuff™ (aluminium box profile) guttering and downpipes in a matching Dura-coat™ finish. The roof was installed in opal polycarbonate.
Result – The result is a new temporary network of modular classrooms, which are linked by a covered walkway, meaning that the staff and students can be confident that they won’t have to dash between buildings if the heavens open. The feeling now is one of purpose rather than a number of separate temporary, unlinked classrooms.
