Eco Pod – Forest School Classroom space

Eco Pod - The Forest School Classroom

This lovely little building is designed around the requirements of the many schools who want something more from their outdoor classroom.   Not just a shelter, but a fully insulated standalone classroom from which they can base their activities.   We can even add a w.c and welly wash / store area.




Foundations are based on a simple mini pile or slab system and can be increased to a screw pile or plinth system where conditions require it.  This will all depend on the building size and location.


Super strong rigid joist and ring beam structure with insect/rodent mesh protection.  Well insulated with Natural Rockwool Insulation and topped of with a high performance Moisture Resistant chipboard flooring.
