Fordingbridge were approached by the architect to design and build a striking timber canopy for this leading independent school in Stockport, Greater Manchester.

Offering weather protection for parents, students and staff, the canopy also makes a strong statement, adding a contemporary twist to the historic architecture on the school’s estate.

Combining both barrel vaulted and freestanding cantilever arches, the glulaminated timber canopy also boasts an architecturally rewarding roof design, combining both opaque and clear finishes.

Clad in a 16mm triple wall polycarbonate, the roof meets requirements of Class B non-fragility and carries a 15 year warranty.
