Enhancing School Security with a Custom Wooden Shed in NZ

An EcoSheds case study

The Security Manager of a prominent College in New Zealand approached our company with a specific requirement – a security shed that would bolster the safety measures on their campus.

We collaborated closely with the College to create a tailor-made solution that met their security needs while blending seamlessly with the schools’ aesthetics.

The Challenge

The College’s primary concern was to establish a security shed on the driveway near the entrance, enabling the security guard to have an unobstructed view of all directions.

The shed had to be compact yet spacious enough to accommodate the necessary equipment while ensuring the safety of the security personnel.

The Solution

Understanding the College’s requirements, our expert team of designers and builders set out to create a custom wooden shed that precisely addressed their needs.

We proposed a small yet functional design, featuring multiple windows strategically placed around the shed to grant an optimal 360-degree view. This design would enable the security guard to monitor activities on the campus from a centralized vantage point.

NZ Oregon Wooden Construction for Durability

Given the rugged New Zealand weather conditions, we opted for a sturdy wooden construction to ensure durability and longevity.

NZ Oregon wood has been a traditional building material in New Zealand due to its resilience against varying climates. Additionally, wooden sheds in NZ offer a natural appeal that complements the surrounding landscape.

Gable Roof Soffit for Shelter

Recognising the security guard’s need for shelter during rainy days, we incorporated a gable roof soffit into the shed’s design.

This architectural feature not only provided protection against rain but also added a touch of elegance to the shed. The design not only served functional purposes but also enhanced the overall aesthetics.

Customisation and Collaboration

Throughout the project, open communication and collaboration with the College’s Security Manager were vital.

We kept them involved at every stage, so that the final product aligned with their vision. We also welcomed their inputs, which helped us refine the design to meet their specific needs better.

Quality Craftsmanship

Craftsmanship is at the heart of our work, and this project was no exception.

Our team of skilled artisans meticulously constructed the wooden shed, paying attention to every detail.

The goal was to create a premium-quality structure that not only met functional requirements but also stood as a testament to our commitment to excellence.

Timely Delivery and Installation

Understanding the College’s urgency, we prioritized the project’s timeline to ensure a swift delivery and installation.

Our efficient team worked diligently to complete the construction within the agreed-upon time-frame.

The shed was delivered and installed without disrupting the campus’s daily activities, causing minimal inconvenience to the College.

Results and Impact

The custom-built security shed made a significant impact on the College campus. The Security Manager and the entire staff expressed their satisfaction with the shed’s design and functionality.

With the security guard stationed in the shed, they were able to maintain a vigilant watch over the campus, preventing unauthorized access and enhancing overall safety.


In conclusion, our collaboration with the College exemplified the successful execution of a custom wooden shed project that catered to specific security needs.

Through efficient planning, quality craftsmanship, and timely delivery, we were able to provide a solution that enhanced the safety measures at the campus while harmoniously blending with the surroundings.

We take pride in contributing to the betterment of educational institutions in New Zealand and remain committed to delivering innovative and functional wooden sheds that meet our customers’ diverse requirements.
