Maximising use of space is of critical importance to schools and colleges. Whether it is in the classroom or on the sports pitch, every inch of space matters.
Schools cannot afford to have teams washed off sports grounds due to bad weather or outdoor seating at lunchtimes made out of bounds due to rain or excessive heat.
Streetspace has a range of solutions to help. Its ZONE glazed buildings are perfect to create additional indoor dining hall space and its covered canopies can create all-weather outdoor social spaces that can be used for break time and outdoor learning.
Games and sports areas can benefit from dramatic increased usage when upgraded to an all-weather multi-use games area. With floodlighting to enable additional after-school activity, head teachers can achieve a four-fold increase in sports pitch use on their campus.
A key feature of the Streetspace service is listening to the needs of clients with staff able to adapt the design and build to meet the specifications required for the project.
Revoe Learning Academy used the installation of its Streetspace all-weather pitch to change attitudes towards the school. The new covered MUGA – a one-piece PVC tensile membrane – is a flagship feature and has helped parents and pupils to develop a new-found pride in the school.
OneSchool Global’s Maidstone campus installed a covered canopy to boost social space for students at lunch and break time, but have discovered a wealth of other uses with outdoor learning, choir performances and even whole school outdoor assemblies a regular feature no matter the weather.
Reading Blue Coat School installed a covered canopy to upgrade cycle parking as part of a strategy to boost its green agenda. To further develop students’ pride in the school Streetspace created a series of smart glass entry spaces and roofs for the majority of buildings on site.
