Project Name: School 360, Sugar House Island Primary School
Location: Stratford, East London
Contractor: Mid Group
Completion Date: July 2021
Products Used: - Aspen Monopitch Canopy. Bespoke Flat Bar Cycle Stands
Bailey Streetscene provided a bespoke approach to Sugar House Island’s all-new Primary school with a number of canopies and cycle stands that open up the available outdoor space at the school.
The new primary school can accommodate 420 pupils plus staff across three storeys and features interfacing classrooms, designed to encourage collaboration and accommodate large working groups and also gives more pupils direct access to outdoor space.
The building design maximises the available outdoor space with 3 play areas including a mixed-use sports pitch supported on the roof. These spaces feature a number of bespoke canopies supplied and installed by Bailey Streetscene.
On the ground floor, an angled 16m Aspen Canopy spans the exterior wall creating a covered cycle and scooter storage area as well as a separate mini auditorium with tiered timber seating that acts as an outdoor classroom. The scooter and cycle storage area features bespoke flat bar cycle stands that have been powder coated in a vibrant turquoise providing secure parking for up to 60 bikes or scooters.
In the Early Years play area another 16m canopy, runs alongside the building wall, extending the classroom outside giving the pupils space to roam and play outside in any weather.
On the roof terrace play area, adjacent to the multi-sport pitch, a larger covered external classroom space has been created with the help of a bespoke canopy roof from Bailey Streetscene.
The school is located in Sugar House Island, which is a brand new award-winning scheme just a short walk from the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, East London. The total 26-acre development will also deliver 1,200 homes, 58,000sq m of commercial space, a 350-bed hotel, and over 3 acres of green space including a riverside park.
The new primary school named “School 360” provides a nurturing and supportive environment to the pupils as well as serving as a community hub to anchor the new neighbourhood.
