The kitchen and W/C were fitted by the school.

Danes Hill School have been clients of Poultons since 2003 and in that time in the region of twenty five different projects have been undertaken. This was the largest and it took about 3 weeks to erect with all staff from  Poultons involved to get it completed quickly with the least amount of time on site  and all completed during the Holidays.

Poultons  Dorset have been supplying bespoke buildings for the Vernon educational trust for approximately fourteen years, and I still have all the buildings at the school , good materials, excellent workmanship, on time delivery, and nothing is to much trouble and I can say I would use the company again with out hesitation.
