Shade Sails and Entrance Canopy at Lincolnshire School
Posted on 16/11/2017
The requirement was two-fold, in that the entrance to The St Lawrence Academy required some shelter as well as a greater sense of identity.
Project – The St Lawrence Academy brings shade and shelter to school
Requirement – The St Lawrence Academy is a small academy for 11-16 year old boys and girls of all abilities, where students are taught in an inclusive, caring environment. It was that environment which required some shelter and additional dining space and A&S Landscape were pleased to be asked for suggestions and recommendations for how to do this to best effect.
Solution – The requirement was two-fold, in that the entrance to The St Lawrence Academy required some shelter as well as a greater sense of identity. This was easily remedied by the addition of a striking Motiva Mono canopy, which shelters visitors, parents and students from the elements, as well as adding a smart first impression when people arrive.
The second requirement was for additional dining space. To give students the option to dine outside whatever the weather is just another way in which The St Lawrence Academy add to the learning environment for their pupils. The decision was to add two Maxima Umbrellas to the playground area. With waterproof fabric, these umbrellas not only shade the pupils from UV rays in the summer, they offer shelter from the rain in the wetter months too. More people can now dine outdoors and enjoy some welcome fresh air, even in the winter time.
Result – The result is a very smart outdoor area at The St Lawrence Academy. The entrance makes a striking first impression and many more children now enjoy eating, socialising and relaxing outdoors all year round. Overall the school has added some lovely new areas to the campus. We love it!
