3 Bay Modular Training Room For Ainscough

Published: Sep 05 2017

Building Type: Modular Buildings

AINSCOUGH GROUP – Crane Hire Group – Training Division


Ainscough Group – Crane Hire Academy  – Training Division

Ainscough Crane Hire Academy are one of the UK’s leading providers of industrial training. This includes renewable energy training, height safety and rescue training courses along with specialist work at height and rescue training all to meet industry standards


Ainscough needed to create additional training space to meet increasing demand for their popular courses, however they were keen to ensure this space was cost effective and aesthetically matched current buildings.

The building needed to have flexible space and be suitable for varying class sizes dependent on courses offered.

Quality and cost were important of course but the need to find a supplier capable of designing a bespoke unit who could meet the high specification internal and external requirements was paramount.


Difficulty in finding a supplier who could meet their exact requirements, work to their specification and not try to sell them a unit already built to be adapted as best they could.

A concern about lack of in-house experience in handling the installation of not only a new building but controlling the extensive groundworks, utilities and landscaping aspects of the project.

The space needed to be flexible and offer the option of easily converting in to one large classroom or two smaller rooms as circumstances dictated.

Toilet and basic catering facilities were required within the building along with a need for plenty of natural light and air conditioning.

Finally the external appearance needed to match existing brick built buildings and look aesthetically pleasing.



Identified in discussion with Ainscough their exact requirements, drew and discussed plans for approval which included a sliding partition to enable the space to be split into two classrooms with ease and several options for external and internal finishes.

Created space for toilet facilities and a kitchenette for on-site catering. Included air-conditioning and curtain walling (large glazed areas) to provide a well-lit and comfortable climate for study and externally added a brick slip effect to 2 walls of the unit along with a powder coated aluminium fascia in corporate colours to enhance appearance.

The 3 units were constructed at our Springfield factory then transported to site for installation saving weeks of on-site disruption.

Springfield also took full responsibility and carried out all necessary groundworks, landscaping and utility facilities prior to delivery.



Ainscough took ownership of a unit built exactly to their requirements that provided a brand new training space, met all their demands and provided bright and airy conditions conducive to training. The building matched existing units and provides an attractive unit for the site. It was completed within 4 weeks and handed over on budget and on time with minimum fuss. Ainscough now have a facility that increases their capacity for training courses and an increased income stream. The full turn-key package to include all aspects of installation including all utilities and landscaping proved a complete hassle free service particularly valued by Ainscough

Modular Buildings

Hesketh Bank Community Centre now has a building which they designed and is perfect for their needs offering the flexibility to accommodate a wide range of activities in space designed to be fit for purpose.

Modular Buildings

Park Lane required additional space to accommodate their growing number of children with SEN. Modular buildings were specified as they offered all the benefits of a traditional build at a fraction of the cost and time, as well as external cladding to ensure an aesthetically pleasing appearance in keeping with the natural environment.

Modular Buildings

Endeavour Academy are part of the New Horizon Federation and continuing success in attracting additional students created a demand for additional space. They originally considered a traditional build but quickly recognised that modular buildings offered much more space for the budget available and offered a much quicker build with lower risk to both children and staff, given that most of the construction is completed off-site.
