The Director of Tiptoes Day Nurseries required weather protection structures at a number of their locations in Hull, East Yorkshire and one of those locations was Tiptoes Nursery in Willerby in Hull.
We were originally approached by them in January 2019, when they requested a quotation for a 23.4m x 5m Coniston Wall Mounted Canopy to cover the whole length of the building. We arranged for a full site survey to be carried out and then sent a quotation to them for their chosen shade and shelter structure.
Upon completion of the site survey we could see that the Coniston, which they originally chose, was the perfect solution for the area they were looking to cover. It was advised that due to the size of the canopy and to provide added protection from driving rain, that they add infill panels to either side of the canopy. Infill panels are a cost-effective addition to the Coniston yet makes a substantial difference.
The Coniston is a popular canopy within educational settings as it provides protection from all weathers including the rain, the sun’s UV rays and the heat from the sun, providing a cooler area underneath, and cooler classrooms that have windows where the canopy is situated.
To save on costs, we suggested that the projection could be reduced slightly without causing a big impact on the size of cover required. However, a 5-metre projection was a must have for the nursery because they had existing softplay flooring in place and wanted the canopy to cover the width of the spftplay for a seamless finish. Although this impacted the cost, it was worthwhile as you can see in the photos it looks like the flooring and canopy were a part of the same design.
They chose to put the canopy project on hold and then in August 2021, they were ready to proceed and requested a re-price for the canopies previously quoted. This wasn’t a problem and because the building and the specification hadn’t change at all, we were able to complete this without an additional site survey.
The canopy was installed within 4 days as scheduled and went ahead with no issues along the way. The staff at the nursery were pleased with their canopy which covers 114.5 square metres and can now make use of outdoor play and learning all year round, benefits both the staff and children in their care.
We also installed a 14.5m a 4m Coniston Wall Mounted Canopy at another Tiptoes nursery in Bricknell Avenue, Hull a couple of days prior to the above canopy and have another canopy for Tiptoes Nursery in Sutton, Hull which is awaiting the approval of planning permission and will be installed soon.
