Straight Roof Shelter at Great Barr Medical Centre in Birmingham
Posted on 28/08/2020
Great Barr Medical Centre was undergoing a series of refurbishments to further improve the site and the services on offer to the patients. Canopy experts, A&S Landscape, was asked to supply two entrance canopies which would work with the surrounding buildings.
What was the project?
To install two straight roof entrance canopies at the new Great Barr Medical Centre in Birmingham.
Which shelter did we use?
Our popular Motiva Linear™ design was deemed the most suitable for this project. The straight roof design makes this canopy very versatile, often being used to create a covered walkway, play shelter and in this case, an entrance canopy.
What was the problem?
Great Barr Medical Centre in Birmingham was undergoing further improvements and decided that installing an entrance canopy would also be beneficial to the site. This would provide a place for the patients to wait outside, under a cover. It would also help to frame the main entrances and make a great first impression for the visitors.
What was our solution?
Our design team worked with the client to agree upon the drawings of two Motiva Linear™ shelters. The canopies would feature Slate Grey steelwork to create a sleek effect, which would also work with the surrounding environment. Clear polycarbonate roof sheets were also used on the shelter, which allows a safe level of sunlight through while blocking UV rays.
What was the result?
Both the staff and the patients of Great Barr Medical Centre are very happy with their new entrance canopies. Now the patients are greeted with a smart and professional looking entranceway, which gives an indication of the fantastic level of care they will receive inside.
The shelters also give the staff the opportunity to enjoy some fresh air during their breaks, no matter the weather. This is will have many benefits for their mental health, something which is especially important in such a busy and skilled occupation.

A little bit about the client…
Great Barr Medical Centre prides itself on the high quality of care it gives their local community. And they don’t just stop there, with the Patient Representative Group they work to continue extending and improving their services and facilities. It’s important that a medical centre helps the patients to feel welcome and comfortable, and we were glad we could be part of this with our entrance canopies.
