Wooden Gazebo for Devon School
Somerset School Gazebo
Timber Structure with Sedum roof and Waterproof Covers
This lovely timber structure was installed for Bishops Lydeard School in Somerset. They wanted a living sedum roof to blend in with the environment and to help teach about bio diversity and sustainability.
The sedum roof will change colours with the seasons and produce flowers which will attract insects and birds. On larger structures these roofing types are used to help reduce surface run off (which affects flood risk) and replace some of the greenery that would otherwise have thrived on the site.
The 5m Octagonal Structure was given a deck and all weather covers to ensure that the shelter got full use all year around. These covers ensure that the 32 pupils (max capacity) inside are all kept dry on the fixed benches, whatever the weather.
I am sure you will agree it looks striking. With its 10 year guarantee we have no doubt that it will get plenty of use from the pupils for many years to come. A timber Structure that any schoool could be proud to use as their outdoor classroom.
