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 and blind solutions for the new teaching block constructed at Castle Primary School, Keynsham. The new build has provided Castle Primary with the space to expand to a 2FE school.
Coloured polycarbonate roof panels were chosen for the canopies in the reception area, providing a focal point and colourful play of light.
The architect’s idea was to make ‘Sunshine on any day’, referenced by the choice of red, orange and yellow roofing panels.
The aluminium frames were especially powder coated to RAL 7012 to match with the doors, windows and fascias. Gutters and downpipes are hidden and go down inside the legs to connect directly to underground drainage channels. This provides a seamless finish.
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.
