Huge bespoke canopies project completed in Milton Keynes

Monday, September 26th, 2016

The RIBA-award winning Water Hall Primary School, in Bletchley, Milton Keynes has just seen the completion of a very special addition to their school. Beginning in July of 2016, and wrapping up at the start of September just in time for the start of the new school year, we have constructed 9 innovative new bespoke canopies to 9 of their school classrooms, providing each one with the opportunity to take their lessons outdoors and into nature.



Their school building, designed by Wyatt Mclaren LLP, was recipient of the

Ivy Chimneys Primary School gets a bright and colourful canopy

Monday, September 26th, 2016

Ivy Chimneys Primary School were in desperate need of a new light and colourful canopy to provide some space for an outdoor classroom and somewhere to do some outdoor activities.


Upon arriving and surveying the area, we agreed! Their existing canopy was tired, worn, and unsightly.



Ivy Chimneys loved the used of coloured polycarbonate in our proposal, as it really injected life and colour into a space that had none before. They were very excited for us to begin the project, and we booked them into a summer time installation slot, so their pupils could return to a happy new canopy!


The new canopy at Ivy Chimneys measures 7m x 2.2m, ideal to take small groups of kids out for lessons or a certain play activity. They opted for a nice variety of coloured polycarbonate, as well as a polycarb side panel as well to enclose the canopy.


The new canopy is a huge improvement to their old one, and we are very happy with another bespoke canopy that the customer loves, and of another job well done.

Giant new timber canopy installed near Bristol

We met the headteacher at Bailey’s Court Primary School, Mr. Lynham, at the Academies Show at the NEC in November of last year, where he was drawn to our brightly coloured exhibition stand, and the fact we could provide an accurate price for the spec of the canopy he was looking for, for him to bring to his governors. After a follow up meeting in which we met with the staff of Bailey’s Court, we discussed the feasibility of the canopy they wanted, as well the different designs we could achieve. Bailey’s Court were also impressed with our willingness to act as their planning agents, overseeing the planning permission applications that would be required for a new canopy of the size they were after.


Bailey’s Court wanted a 50m x 5m monopitch timber canopy, that matched the camber of their existing roof, to provide a seamless design that complemented their school building.




The school opted for red and clear polycarbonate roofing sheets, as this reflects their school’s colours. They loved having this customisation option available to them.


The timber canopy provides a huge amount of covered space, meaning Bailey’s Court Primary’s pupils
