Castle Primary School case study
Product: 1 Spaceshade barrel roof walkway, 2 Spaceshade lean-to canopies with coloured roof panels and internal roller blinds and rooflights for the new classroom block.
Location: Keynsham, nr Bristol
Specifier: BBA Architects
That’s Interesting: Castle School is the first project where Kensington has installed pent and barrel roof canopies simultaneously.
Kensington Systems worked with BBA Architects and contractor H Mealing to provide canopy solutions for the new teaching block constructed at Castle Primary School, Keynsham.
In the end we installed two Spaceshade Lux lean-to canopies outside the reception classrooms and a freestanding Spaceshade walkway with a ‘barrel roof’ linking the old and new buildings together.
Polycarbonate coloured roof panels were chosen for the reception canopies, producing a colourful play of light and point of interest in the reception play area.
The architect’s idea was to make ‘Sunshine on any day’, referenced by the choice of red, orange and yellow roofing panels.
Each Spaceshade canopy is certified as non-fragile and has totally integrated gutters and downpipes for advanced and aesthetically pleasing rainwater management.
The downpipes go down inside the legs and are connected directly into the underground drainage channels for a seamless finish.
The aluminium frames were especially powder coated to RAL 7012 to match with the doors, windows and fascias.
Rolshade 430 roller blinds and Rolshade 600 rooflights were also installed to windows and skylights throughout the new teaching block.
The contractor was able to save time and money by procuring both packages with Kensington.
The new building has provided Castle Primary with the space to expand to a 2FE school.
