Mulberry Bear Day Nursery
Mulberry Bear Nursery is situated on the Open University campus in Milton Keynes and provides care for babies and children of staff and students at the campus. They were looking at ways they could offer a more usable outdoor space for their children and babies.
The nursery already had an outside area with Wet Pour rubber flooring laid. This flooring is a safe rubber coating ideal for babies and children to crawl and play on. However the nursery said that it gets warm in direct sunlight so the Nursery wanted some shade to provide an all year round outdoor space for the children.
After completing a site survey to discuss the requirements of the Nursery it was decided that a free standing Mono-Pitch canopy with timber posts would give an area of 4.75m long and projecting 4.5m. This structure required 4 foundation pots to be excavated and the structure erected to provide the nursery with the cover they required. The canopy was installed in September and now provides the nursery with a more comfortable outdoor area.
The Nursery now have a usable space for all weather conditions.
