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: “Meeting the government’s sustainable school agenda has been key in developing the concept and so 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.”
The standardisation of panel design reduces cost and lead-in times thus enabling the base build rotatED to be installed in around 10 days, subject to site conditions and service requirements. This timescale particularly suits the main school holiday periods thereby avoiding disruption during school hours.
