Spinney School Covered Walkway
A covered walkway was needed to join buildings in the school grounds.
Delays in completion of the mosiac tiled path means that we have to wait to start installation of the covering walkway
The framework for the walkway is placed out sitting in the prepared holes through the paving to allow a secure foundation.
The green powder coated sections are only unwrapped at the last minute. The sections joining the frame arches are now added
Now the job of checking levels and ensuring the framework is ‘plum’. The corner section will be added next.
The corner has now been added and the walkway continued. Sections linking the individual arches continue to be bolted in.
The wooden door on the left leads into the 2nd school building. The gap straight ahead will be a fire door.
Looking from the other side we can see the walkway is now starting to take on a more solid shape as fixings are tightened.
From on top of the 2nd school building roof we can see the walkway framework leading back along the path to the dinner hall.
Lines look a bit straighter and the walkway is just about ready for the addition of roof and side panels.
In it’s exposed location the walkway benefits from the UV protection in the GRP sheeting yet the roof remains 85% translucent.
The walkway cannot come in contact with the building so is cantilevered at the end to match the gradient in the walkway.
The job is complete and the caretaker locks the door ready for first day of primary school term in the morning.
