Outdoor Learning Canopies

The University estates team approached us to help them create a series of 4 outdoor learning solutions located in the four main campuses across the Heslington Site, Seebohm Rowntree, James College, Law Plaza and Constantine College Plaza.

Our Solution

They were looking to extend their lectures outdoors during the pandemic and on a longer term basis going forward and be able to set up a number of outdoor laptop stations.

The Cairngorm canopy from our pre-designed range was selected to suit the university’s needs and to fit within their budget, and it allowed for 16 users and screens to fit under each canopy with appropriate distancing.
