Working for Wates construction Ltd, this project was a good opportunity for Broxap to show our clients the versatility of our product range & methods of installation all on one site. The Willows C of E Primary School in Stratford had a number of requirements to be used in various applications, including the requirement to allow pupils to continue using their outdoor swimming pool; even when the weather was not so good.

Always up for a challenge Broxap took on the task of supplying not one, but three canopies all in different locations at the school.

The first was a complicated Newcastle Lattice style shelter to cover their existing external swimming pool in a small courtyard which did not allow for easy access & installation. The use of a crane was necessary to deliver & install materials, and careful consideration of the protection of the pool was needed when installing from inside from scaffold towers.

They also required bespoke Asymmetric Cambridge style canopy to provide protection from the elements to pupils within their play area (which was extended during the programme). The canopy ran all the way along the reception & nursery areas of the school, again complicated by the site circumstances.

Finally, the school required a semi-circular entrance canopy to the front entrance of the school, to be welcoming and to set the school off perfectly. In addition to all of these works, the school requested some fabulous new cycle parking to complete the overall package.

As with all Broxap products the ability to see this project through from conception to completion, liaising with all stakeholders is crucial to performing a seamless & trouble free installation. This is always more of a challenge on a multi-unit operation such as The Willows, but was executed enthusiastically, appropriately and timely by Broxap.
