Designed Around You

We have so many options available. As well as our Scandinavian-inspired Forest School Cabins, you can also opt for our bespoke school rooms, available in a choice of 3 different cladding choices. One of the most popular choices is our zero-maintenance Marley Board, which is a composite cladding that doesn't require any ongoing treatment or maintenance, so your cabin will stay in as good a condition as the day it was installed. We also offer Redwood, a timeless, rustic cladding bursting with natural charm and beauty, and our showstopping Cedar, a contemporary, virtually knotless timber which offer an unrivalled feel of luxury and quality.

Why Is A Bespoke Building A Good Investment For Schools?

Outdoor buildings are freestanding structures that can be used for a variety of purposes, including classrooms, libraries, and science labs. Investing in a purpose-built outdoor classroom is a smart choice for schools looking to enhance the educational experience for their students. They provide flexibility, cost-effectiveness, environmental benefits, and increased learning opportunities. By investing in an outdoor building, schools can create a learning environment that is engaging, immersive, and highly effective!
