Covered Outdoor Learning Area

Meeting the NSW Department of Education Guidelines

With over 20 years of experience supplying beautiful and reliable Covered Outdoor Learning Areas (COLA’s) to many education facilities across NSW, we keep up to date with the latest standards. Why? So that you get a quality product that will stand the test of time and meet the highest standards. No matter how big or small your outdoor space is, your structure will have the following key elements:
  • Bird proofing: Stylemaster will install a combination of flashings, spikes, and nettings so that there are no perch points for birds to congregate and pose a safety risk to people in the area.
  • Downpipes: Each structure will have strategically placed downpipes to make sure that rainwater flows straight from the rooftop down to the correct drainage spots.
  • Acoustic lining and insulation: Acoustic and insulation panels will help reduce noise transfer (i.e. rainfall hitting the rooftop) and absorb any sound being made under the roof. Thus, greatly reducing reverberation and noise amplification.
  • Zero obstructions: By minimising the use of support beams and posts where possible, this will create extra space and provide a panoramic view of your surroundings from practically all angles.
  • Built in a safe and timely manner: Under the NSW Department of Education, most COLA structures must be built during the school holidays to remove the risk of injury to staff and students. Stylemaster Patios will work closely with you to create a building schedule that fits your needs and budget.
