Compton Primary Play-Pod

PJB Building were asked by Compton primary school, to build a bespoke play pod, in essence a heavy duty store that would be filled with outdoor play equipment, for up to 400 pupils to use during break times. After several meetings with the deputy head and others involved in the project a basic design and project plan was put together and the project began.


Using only the best quality pressure treated timber the base was installed and levelled; all the bespoke hand cut frames were constructed and covered with shiplap cladding, and the team carefully lifted and fixed everything into position.  Within four days the whole project seemed to just grow straight out of the ground and looked great. We installed a (fiberglass) GRP roofing system, built storage boxes and hand built the T&G doors and finished it off with an easy access ramp and upvc guttering and downpipe.


The school use the pod every day and love it; their review of our work can be found on our website.


What’s interesting about undertaking bespoke carpentry projects like this is that the storage areas can be built to any size and be used for anything, storing a lawn mower and gardening equipment, creating a luxury workshop, or for parking the car in. they are robust in every sense of the meaning, so if your considering buying yet another overpriced poor quality garden shed, from the garden centre that will only last two years before it falls apart?


Then think again, PJB Building and Property Maintenance can and will design exactly what you need, when you need it and in materials that will last.


We can even design, create and install many other products including, external decking, handrails, gazebos, pagodas, lean-to’s, car ports and external garden fencing.


Don’t hesitate to give us a call as we would be thrilled to offer a free site survay and no obligation estimate.
