PERGOLAS AND DECKING
In recent years the Government has introduced the Early Years Capital Grant Funding Scheme to encourage the owners of private pre-school and nursery schools, as well as state-run nurseries, to provide partially covered outdoor areas, in order to encourage the children to make more use of, and interact with, the outdoor environment, whilst at the same time being afforded some protection from the sun and rain. The increasing power of the sun in these modern times of global warming make this concept all the more relevant for the protection of young children, and we offer a full design package from concept to completion. We have significant experience in the minefield of local authority planning application and consent, just a part of our service, as well as a comprehensive knowledge of what types of materials would best be used to create an aesthetically pleasing, as well as practical, permanent structure that can be used as the basis for creating your own individual, tailor-made playground shelter. As a general rule, we like to construct a freestanding pergola structure using Tanalised treated timber upright posts and cross members, to which can then be fitted a huge variety of options that can afford the children the level of protection from the elements that may be required. From a simple half-cover, south-facing, Hypar sail, offering only adequate solar protection from the strong, summer, midday sun; to fully pitched roof coverage in clear or tinted UV-protecting polycarbonate, offering full protection from the rain. We can fit retractable roller blinds, which can provide both options, as well as a huge range of optional extras, such as wet-pour rubberised play surface, decking and picket fencing, roll-up side curtains with windows, lighting, heating, seating.........the list is endless. From simple garden pergolas to our complete Garden Barn fully enclosed freestanding building, give us a call and let us provide you with a free quotation.
A typical example of our freestanding Garden Barn, fabricated in treated Scandinavian Redwood with a clear 16mm triple-wall polycarbonate roof, with all round rain guttering, after obtaining full local authority planning consent.
We can add manual or electric roller blinds, or removable side curtains, shown here gear operated in WI/530 supported PVC with clear 0.5mm FR windows, creating the perfect outdoor play area.
