Fabric and Polycarbonate Canopies Designed for Brushwood Junior School in Buckinghamshire
Brushwood Junior School wanted to add two canopies to their site, one to shelter a handwashing station and one to cover an outdoor picnic area. Because the uses of both areas are so different, we opted for two very different canopy designs. For the basin area, the school chose a small Motiva Mono™ curved roof shelter finished in a striking Ultramarine Blue. And the Maxima StarSail™ fabric roof canopy was the perfect choice for the seating area. The school now benefits from two new covered areas which both will make the school day easier and more enjoyable for the teachers and pupils.

Curved Roof Dining Canopy in Merseyside at Lord Derby Academy

Hythe Primary School in Hythe Add Red Straight Roof Shelter to Play Area
Our expert advice and service was requested at Hythe Primary School as they had no shelter in their Key Stage One play area.

A&S Landscape was asked to install a play area canopy to cover some of the outdoor space at the school. The school are delighted with the finished result and the ‘polite, respectful and hardworking’ installation team.

Chiswick School in London adds Outdoor Dining Shelter
What was the project brief?
Chiswick School, located in the London borough of Hounslow, is a mixed secondary school which has a student population of over 1,200. Expectations of the students are high, with the school operating to exceptional standards. To maintain their level of excellence, it was of critical importance that the school built additional dining space to accommodate the growing number of children that were admitted to the school. The site map showed that there wasn’t enough space for all the students to eat in comfort, or without direct exposure to the weather outside. The school needed to find a solution.
Although space was tight, the school identified areas where they were able to accommodate extra dining space. Once they settled on a suitable location, they called in A&S Landscape to help with the proposed move. Working with a well-known national builder, they prepared to design, manufacture and install a quality shelter that would provide the school with the extra dining space it required.
What was our shelter solution?
Thanks to their outstanding durability, we decided that four large Maxima StarSail™ canopies would be the perfect fit for the school’s requirements. Each StarSail measures 8000mm x 8000mm and were placed strategically to ensure excellent protection from the weather. Sail shades are always a stylish solution thanks to the choice of coloured fabrics available, and these four were no exception. The school opted for a bright Porcelain Green colour for the waterproof shade cloth, and Grey (RAL 7000) for the Dura-coat™ finish of the steelwork. The visible area beneath the canopies was further transformed with the wonderful addition of picnic benches.
What was the result of their new shelter?
The direct impact of the canopies has been tremendous. The school has shown that even with limited possible locations in their immediate vicinity, they were able to innovate and find a solution. The canopies blend fantastically with all existing structures, and they are highly practical too. The students have taken a special interest in the new shelter system, as they are now able to socialise, eat and study without direct exposure to the elements. The outdoor dining area now firmly has a place on the site map, and the additional improvements to the campus are highly noticeable in the student’s mental health and wellbeing, who now go to lessons feeling refreshed!
About the client
Chiswick School is located in the London borough of Hounslow. With the tagline of ’empowering students to be ambitious and proud,’ the school clearly strives to see each of its students achieve to the best of their ability.
This was clear from working with the staff members too, who were highly communicative, supportive and provided us with sufficient information throughout the entire process. We are incredibly pleased to have provided a suitable alternative location for students to sit at lunchtimes, one that will endure even through times of inclement weather.
Can A&S Landscape help with cycle shelters too?
As well as standard design canopies, A&S Landscape has a popular range of cycle storage solutions that are able to accommodate a large number of bikes, even when the proposed area may have complex turns and angles. With the addition of side screens, cycle lockers and additional security features, we are able to create an ultra-safe place for bike storage.
With the Government’s Cycle to Work Scheme and public transport becoming more bike-friendly, cycling has become an increasingly popular choice for both students and commuters alike. Therefore, lack of a decent bike shelter may be a cause of potential inconvenience for visitors, customers or staff.
We have three standard bike shelter options Cyclo City™ a straight roof shelter offering complex configurations, Cyclo Bike™ a simple modular design canopy with a curved roof, and side panel options and the Cyclo Buggy™ a curved-roof canopy with excellent space efficiency.
Each secure structure has its own unique qualities, but all are highly durable, and each one has the potential for certain modifications. If you have a suitable location in mind for your bike shelter and would like further details on how A&S Landscape can work with you, please contact us on 01743 444100.

Covered Queuing Area Added to St Mary Magdalene C of E School in London
Before St Mary Magdalene C of E School approached canopy experts A&S Landscape, the students would be exposed to the weather conditions while they queued to enter the dining hall.

St Mary’s Catholic Primary School in Worcestershire Install Straight Roof Playground Shelter
St Mary’s Catholic Primary School had an older timber canopy, that provided cover to their playground for years. However, its days were numbered and eventually it became damaged, meaning it had to be replaced. They knew we provide many different shelters, so they contacted us to help replace it. Having secured a grant to help them fund the new canopy, they could pick the one that worked best for them. They decided to go with a Motiva Linear canopy as a replacement, as it offered so many benefits to them. Being made of Marine Blue coloured steelwork, it’s going to be a lot sturdier than their old canopy.
