School Shelter Offers Weather Protection at Primary School in Herefordshire
Posted on 02/02/2017
Installing a Motiva Linear Monopitch canopy meant we were able to provide St. Peter’s Primary School with a smart and versatile sheltered area for them to use for a variety of learning and play activities.
Project – Motiva Linear canopy at St Peter’s Primary School
Product – Motiva Linear
Requirement – Building recesses as they are known exist on most schools, often cut off, ignored, unloved and unused and yet these spaces are real opportunities for us and our products.
With a simple addition, these spaces can go from being undervalued to having a new lease of life.
Infilling building recesses is about taking areas that already have walls to either two or even three sides and by adding a roof, making it into outdoor room. It’s a lot less expensive than adding any other type of new learning space but ultimately can have the same effect. Year round, all weather space you can use for anything you like.
Solution – Installing a Motiva Linear Monopitch canopy in a complementary colour, in conjunction with the surrounding walls meant we were able to provide St. Peter’s Primary School with a smart and versatile sheltered area for them to use for a variety of learning and play activities.
Result – The result is transformative, taking a space that was full of potential, we helped St. Peters to unlock it with just one simple addition.
This gives them a versatile area that increases the size of the school footprint and gives new social, learning and play space for their students.
