As part of a larger project for three overseas schools, Shaded Nation was selected to design and build shade sail solutions for 6 areas over 3 school sites. Working with our engineer and the school head, the new shade sail structures provide a cost effective solution, resulting in the children being able to make full use of the outdoor space while learning or during play.
The bright colours bring a fun feel to the space whilst deflecting UV rays and creating a cool dry space for pupils. Each of the installations incorporated a high degree of complexity due to their exposed locations and the installation into hard rock. The projects were completed between February and June of this year.
The Sail Installation went brilliantly. The Head Teacher of the school was especially impressed with how much was completed within the first few days (6th - 8th June) before the children went back to school. The disruption to the adjacent classrooms was very little.
The planning was smooth and having the majority of resources arrive together in a container, and workers that were willing to be adaptable to the school working hours made a huge difference.
