Contemporary Garden Rooms have just completed this classroom building in Shropshire. Built for a Primary School who were in need of a multifunctional space to extend their main school which dates back to the 1800’s.
The new classroom is 5m x 4m and will be used as a new space for students and parents. Providing valuable new classroom space and an area for holding meetings with parents. The head teacher joked she’d like it as her office but the pupils have won the day!
Contemporary Garden Rooms had the week of the half term break to build the new classroom. It is possible to work to tight schedules like this because Contemporary Garden Rooms build their buildings in their workshops and then transport and reassemble on site.
Because the site of the new classroom was at the top of a sandstone quarry there was some concern about the foundations. The Contemporary Garden Rooms team went into the school on the Saturday before work was due to start to get a head start on the foundations. In the end they didn’t have too much trouble.
Work started on the classroom on Monday morning and the whole project was completed by Friday lunchtime. In addition to the main building Contemporary Garden Rooms added some extras like a raised decked seating area for the children to sit on, gravelled areas and they went to the lengths of power washing the fence around the classroom so it looks like new.
This classroom cost the school just over £33,000 which we think is very reasonable when you consider how valuable the space will be now and in the years to come.
