Outdoor classroom for Rodings

Rodings Primary School called Setter Shelters in to come up with a solution for their desire for an outdoor teaching space.

Their brief was for something spacious, that navigated the rise in gradient they had directly outside of their school buildings.


Using our experience and knowledge of glulam timber beams, we proposed a shelter that would maximise space beneath the canopy, and still finish at an ample height, despite being up the rise.

They loved our design and requested we start work as soon as possible.


The canopy provides plenty of room for classes or play times to be taken outside, and affords ample protection from the rain, as well as from the sun – our polycarbonate roofing sheets are UV resistant and so stop the suns harmful rays. An integrated guttering system means no drips.


The curved beams add real interest to the school building, and you can see why Rodings Primary School as so pleased with their new shelter.
