Ofsted outstanding rated secondary school in Peterborough creates inspiring, all-weather social and breakout space

Posted by Ed Brown | January 20, 2017 | Bricks & mortar

This Ofsted outstanding rated secondary school in Peterborough wanted to create an inspiring, all-weather social and breakout space to be used for teaching as well as during break time by staff and pupils.

The perfect solution, three 10m octagonal structural timber canopies with Opal 60 roofs and mill finished aluminium gutters and downpipes. The Opal roof fabric is 100% waterproof, allows 60% light transmission and protects users from harmful UV rays. Attractive vertical timber cladding semi-encloses the structures, providing additional weather protection.

The light oak finish of the timber provides a warm and modern aesthetic to the canopies which have already proved a great addition to the school environment. This all-weather, affordable solution encourages outdoor learning and alternative ways of delivering the curriculum for staff and pupils.

If you have a space you would like to transform, call today to see how we can help.
