Posted on 08/07/2016
At A&S Landscape we pride ourselves on really understanding what each school outdoor shelter requires before we even think about starting.
Project – The Chase High School
Product – Motiva Linear
Requirement – Design is all about problem solving, have you heard that one before?
Well, it’s true. Every school shelters canopies project has its own unique set of circumstances and at A&S we pride ourselves on really understanding what each school outdoor shelter requires before we even think about starting.
If we were super heroes, our super power would be listening. Sure, flying sounds a lot more exciting but our way means our clients are always very, very happy. Plus, flying doesn’t really help with installing the best playground canopies for schools.
First thing to note, The Chase High School in Worcestershire has high standards, they expect greatness from their students and work really hard to make sure they have every possible opportunity. It’s very inspiring. But it also sets the bar high for us!
So when The Chase High School contacted A&S looking for a waiting canopy outside their entrance we spent time looking at the territory first. And something we noticed was that given the placement of the doors we couldn’t install using the normal posts in those areas.
Solution – After working through a number of options it was clear that a Motiva Linear Monopitch (asymmetric) straight roof canopy would be the answer, installed with wall brackets instead of posts around the doorways. This kept those areas free and the smart Slate Grey steelwork was complemented with a clear roof, which allows the maximum sunlight to flood the canopy whilst protecting the pupils from harmful UV rays as they walk between buildings.
The canopy was specified with Alu-Tuff™ guttering and downpipes in matching Dura-coat™ finish.
Result – Now we know The Chase High School have high standards so we were delighted when they reviewed us 10 out of 10 for the outdoor waiting canopy we installed, with the Senior Site Manager commenting ”There’s nothing they could improve on,” and I’m sure he meant to add ‘even if they could fly’.
