South View Infant School
We were asked to propose a canopy design that would give protection from the sun as much as the rain and the school chose the Oxford Wave Form Canopy to oversail their existing single storey building along the length of both Year 1 classrooms.
The design was approved by our engineers and foundations specified for this location, satisfying the requirements of local building control which included connecting our rainwater outlets into their existing stormwater drains below ground.
The canopy was completed inside of one week on-site – excavate and cast foundations, erect and glaze canopy, connect stormwater drainage and hot tarmac reinstatement.
