The Project

Project: Ambergate College
Client: MPH Building Systems
Project cost: £40K
Products: SOLEX – HALO 100™

Ambergate College in Grantham is a state school for children aged 4 to 16 with special needs. Solinear was called upon to install a bespoke solar shading system onto their modular building.

Solinear were asked to design a canopy style solar shading system to mitigate solar heat gain and provide the building with a stunning front-canopy feature to make the modular building really stand out.


Working with MPH Building Systems, Solinear provided expert product design at the commercial stage with a VE design solution that was proposed and agreed with no problems.

Solinear designed, manufactured, supplied and installed their SOLEX™ HALO 100 solar shading system, together with all associated structural support canopy and posts.

Manufactured to suit a tight contract programme, Solinear successfully installed this fully-bespoke solar shading system in very little time. The system will keep the building users happy for years to come.
