School Dining Canopy for Pupils in Oxfordshire
Posted on 17/03/2015
A&S Landscape installed one Motiva Duo and one Motiva Mono canopy in a white steelwork with opal roofing, which means Gilliotts students stay dry whilst eating as well as get protection from direct sunlight.
Project – Dining Area Canopy – Gillotts School, Henley on Thames
Requirement – In life we often focus on specific tasks, specific goals and forget that it’s the space between these jobs that holds the most importance.
For example; for a school to succeed and become truly excellent is it just about the lessons and the staff? They play an incredibly important role, obviously, but there’s no doubt that the environment a student learns in helps them to be in the best state to succeed.
And what more important environment than where you eat?
Seriously. An army marches on its stomach!
Outdoor dining areas offer social space with access to natural light and fresh air, both of which have been proven to increase engagement and memory capacity.
And if you’re a school with the kind of high standards and ambition of Gilliotts School in Oxford, you’re going to want to do this right.
One of the top schools in the country, Gilliots performs incredibly well and encourages their students to be innovative and excited about all that they do.
Solution – A&S Landscape installed one Motiva Duo and one Motiva Mono canopy in a white steelwork with opal roofing, which means Gilliotts students stay dry whilst eating as well as get protection from direct sunlight.
Result – The finished outdoor dining shelters offer year-round covered dining as well as being a smart and modern addition to a beautiful campus, set in over 32 acres of land. Gilliots set high standards with everything they do and we were delighted to exceed those standards with this addition to campus.
