Curwen Primary School

Design Brief

Aliport Commercial were first contacted in December 2015 about this project. Curwen Primary had an existing cover over their fire escape but it was no longer fit for purpose so they required a new shelter for their fire escape in emergencies.

Site Conditions

Aliport Commercial undertook three site visits to fully understand the project, measure up and produce the designs for the new canopy. Due to the completely bespoke nature of the canopy the fit of the canopy was very important. Due to the height of the installation the Aliport fitters worked off of Scaffolding for the duration of the project.

Aliport Solution

Aliport Commercial commenced works in March 2016 and over a 5 day duration installed the canopy. The Aluminium was powder-coated white leaving an attractive finish. Whilst installing the canopy, consideration had to be given to management of rainwater, it was decided to manage rainwater into existing drainage. Upon completion the canopy was checked to ensure it was watertight
