Sheltered Areas Added to Waingels College in Berkshire
Posted on 09/09/2019
Waingels College was lacking an area where the students could socialise outside under shelter. The school choose to install three steel and polycarbonate canopies as well as one fabric umbrella canopy.
Project – Waingels College in Berkshire add three outdoor canopies
Requirement – Waingels College in Reading, Berkshire wanted to add outdoor shade and shelter to their campus. More options for students to sit and enjoy the fresh air without having to consider the weather, this was the aim.
Solution – With so many design options available it was hard to choose, so Waingels College installed not one, but three steel and polycarbonate canopies and one fabric Umbrella canopy made with waterproof PVC. The steel and polycarbonate canopies were from the Motiva Duo range. Measuring 8m x 6m and constructed from yellow steel with polycarbonate roofing, these canopies have created large seating areas, which the college have completed with 24 recycled plastic benches. The Umbrella shade is from the Maxima range and with its waterproof PVC fabric, standing at 8m x 8m, it has also created a large sheltered area for students to enjoy in all weathers.
Result – The resulting spaces are well used by students at lunch and break times, for socialising, relaxing, dining and perhaps even studying. The Motiva Duo canopies are adjacent to the sports pitch, so students can watch their teams and peers as they play a variety of sports.
