A Banchory-based architect-led manufacturer of luxury garden rooms, extensions and new build houses recently won a contract with Inverclyde council to provide six outdoor classrooms ranging in size from small 4×4 unheated space to a full 60sqm classroom with toilets facilities.
Dab Den was set up in 2011 and has carried out projects throughout Scotland. The environmentally conscious company uses SIP panels due to their ease of build, air tightness, reduced wastage and quick built times.
With the increase on demand for nurseries to facilitate the increase of government-funded hours for parents to 30 hours per week, it has resulted in many nurseries throughout Scotland requiring to upgrade, renovate and extend to make space for the additional infants.
Dab Den Classrooms offer a solution for the additional space in primary schools and nurseries without the expense of an extension, whilst complying with all necessary childcare requirements.
The first of the classrooms was recently completed in Gourock and the next two large classrooms are currently being built and due for completion at the end of July.
Kat Byers of DabDen said “We were delighted to have won the tender with Inverclyde council. The Dab Dens make fantastic learning spaces for the kids and also has allowed us to launch our Dab Den Nurseries.”
