A Replacement Canopy for a School in Dagenham

A Replacement Canopy for a School in Dagenham

Valence Primary School in Dagenham is a state primary school which also has an on-site nursery school. Their aim to create a happy, healthy, safe and secure learning environment for their pupils.

The Project Manager at London Borough of Barking and Dagenham reached out to us because the school had an existing enclosed canopy which they previously purchased elsewhere and was unfortunately no longer fit for purpose. They therefore needed a replacement so that their staff and pupils could continue to use the outdoor space under a canopy that was safe and secure. The new canopy would need to be high-quality and last for many years.

Because their existing structure was enclosed, they wanted their new structure to also be enclosed and mounted onto the wall in the same location. Given all the requirements, it was clear that the Coniston Wall Mounted Canopy was the perfect solution for their requirements. The Coniston is extremely versatile, it can be wall mounted or free standing, it can be supplied with side panels to enclose it and it is supplied with a 10 year guarantee and a 25 year life expectancy; fulfilling all of their needs.#

Adding canopy side panels to the Coniston canopy transforms it into a modular outdoor classroom. We can also add lockable doors to the Coniston however, the school opted to have the doorways open, which is a nice touch as it makes it much airier inside and still gives the feeling of being outside rather than in an enclosed classroom.

The canopy we supplied and installed at the school in Dagenham was 12 metres long and projected 3.7 metres from the wall. The area looks much neater, more modern and is also safe to use again, leaving the teachers ad pupils with a new covered outdoor space that can be used all year round.
