Concrete Desks for Outdoor Classrooms – Recent Completions



The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has brought on an uptick of requests for outdoor learning. In the summer of 2021 we took on the task of supplying Guilford County, NC with 15 outdoor classrooms. Consisting of a total of 390 desks and 15 lecterns, this project was our largest of the year.

Ramping up production, we were able to produce 50 desks per week. This took up almost half of our shop for a little over two months.


Working with Jaime and his team, we were able to plan eight truck load shipments over the course of two and a half months. This allowed time for his contractor to set and install these at various locations throughout the school district according to their timeline. Feedback from their team was all positive. They love the quality of the desks and service that was provided by our team.
