With more than 90 years’ experience in timber buildings, established over four generations, Scotts has used its expertise in equestrian buildings, pavilions, and specialist timber products such as summerhouses and garages, to design a core range of education buildings.

A range of single and double classrooms has been initially designed with a number of features including a lobby, cloakroom, washroom, store or any combination of these features giving customers the chance to visualise a completed building.

“The core range is just a starting point,” explains Scotts of Thrapston business development manager, Philip Goldstone. “The beauty of Scotts’ education buildings is that they can be completely tailored to suit the proposed setting and will be designed to precisely meet the end user’s specification. 

“Whether there are special needs requirements, accessibility issues or existing structures to take into consideration, our dedicated team will work with the education provider to ensure all needs are met resulting in a sustainable, cost-effective and maintenance-free solution.”
