3DReid unveils 'rotating' classroom pod
3DReid has launched a rotating outdoor classroom concept with tree house designer Blue Forest
The seven-sided ‘rotatED’ structure can be turned to suit different uses such as classroom, performance or play space.
The sustainable ‘base shelter’ takes 10 days to install on site and can be customised with external finishes, doors, screens, toilets or photovoltaic panels.
Graham Edwards, divisional director at 3DReid said: ‘The concept has been developed in response to feedback from pupils, staff and stakeholders seeking quality outdoor space that promotes healthy living, environmental awareness, social interaction and opportunities for personal development.
‘The simplicity of this creative and flexible design enables pupils and staff to use and personalise the space in various ways to suit their needs. No two “rotatED” will be the same.’
Simon Payne, director at Blue Forest said: ‘rotatED will be built with environmentally friendly materials (Forest Stewardship Council Certified Timber) with the option for various renewables including wind turbines and rainwater harvesting.’
