School umbrella shades in South Wales
Posted on 22/08/2017
Students are now sheltered from rain or UV rays as they walk through the large courtyard. The two new Maxima Umbrellas complement the modern, clean, crisp lines of the campus perfectly.
Project – Outdoor umbrellas complement school in Ebbw Vale
Product – Maxima Umbrella
Requirement – Ebbw Fawr Learning Community, the first 3-16 maintained school in Wales, opened in September 2012. The £57M state of the art campus provides a modern learning environment for all students in Ebbw Vale. The courtyard however, was lacking shade and was crying out for a modern, stylish addition to complete it.
Solution – Given how large the courtyard was, it was decided to add not one but two Maxima umbrellas. Each umbrella stands proud at 7x7m. They are set close together to provide a huge sheltered area which is flexible for the students to use however they wish.
To blend in with the modern, stylish building, the umbrellas have slate grey steelwork and boulder coloured fabric. A&S Landscape offer 40 colours of waterproof fabric, which you can view on our website.
Result – Students are now sheltered from rain or UV rays as they walk through the large courtyard. The two new Maxima Umbrellas complement the modern, clean, crisp lines of the campus perfectly. Students and staff are proud of their school and this new addition is yet another thing for them to enjoy as they move around site. How lucky they are to have such a fabulous school environment. Adding a cleverly designed canopy is always a great option. If you are considering something similar or would like to talk through some bespoke options please do get in touch.
