Cost Effective School Extensions: Outdoor Classrooms

Cost Effective School Extensions: Outdoor Classrooms

Now more than ever, schools such as yours are in need of more space and with lots going on with government regulations and health and safety issues, many schools are finding themselves needing the extra space quickly, so they can continue their lessons uninterrupted.
The obvious answer is to build a permanent extension however, that can be extremely costly, with long timescales, not to mention the disruption they can cause. So, what’s the answer? Outdoor Classrooms of course!

What is an Outdoor Classroom?

An outdoor classroom is a canopy complete with side and front panels with secure lockable doors. They are extremely popular with schools that wish to add teaching space that can be used all year round yet are on tight budgets, or need a quick solution.
They can be installed as freestanding structures anywhere within your school grounds, or mounted onto your existing building. They feature a choice of construction materials including aluminium outdoor classrooms, steel outdoor classrooms and timber outdoor classrooms. The designs include mono-pitch structures as well as curved and domed roofs which is particularly attractive on the timber outdoor classrooms.

Why Choose an Outdoor Classroom?

There are so many reasons to invest in outdoor classrooms however, the most crucial for this conversation would be because our outdoor classrooms take a matter of days to install and are a fraction of the price of an extension, they are the perfect solution for a quick turnaround.

As mentioned in the section above, there are so many design choices with our outdoor classrooms that you are sure to find a design that fits in with your outside area perfectly. There are also many colours to choose from including bright and zesty to subtle and mellow, which means your outdoor classroom can either blend in with its surroundings effortlessly or you can create a striking focal point with contrasting colours.

They are also supplied with up to 25-year life expectancies so you know your investment will be more than worthwhile and serve your school for many years to come.
