Increasing demand for space in schools and nurseries

There have been many factors having an impact on the need for additional space at schools and nurseries, the recent “Early Years Funding” budget announcement has only compounded the challenge many schools face.

An increasingly popular choice to solve this growing problem is the use of Modular Buildings as a quick, cost-effective solution to the lack of space.

When you consider the advantages offered by Modular building it really is easy to see why.

  • Faster build – takes a fraction of the time of a traditional build.
  • Offsite construction – Safer, quicker, less waste, less disruption.
  • Flexibility – Buildings can be simply extended or moved.
  • Reduced impact – on children & staff, buildings installed in holiday period.
  • Cost Effective – Quality materials but efficient, factory-based production reduces cost.
  • Eco-Friendly – Reduced pollution, recyclable materials, less energy during construction, less transportation, energy efficient.
  • Durability – Durable materials built to last, and weather proofed during construction.

All in all, quite a compelling case and when you then take in to account the massive improvements in materials and choice of finishes inside & out, modular buildings that are unrecognisable from those remember from just a few years ago.

So, whether it is an additional room for nursery spaces, recreational activities, new changing facilities for your sports department, a building dedicated to a certain subject discipline or a separate space to host breakfast club, modular buildings can help your school function more efficiently.

Our buildings are bespoke built to your specification with help from us on cost reduction and features available. They will be configured to suit your educational requirements, whether that is a classroom, changing rooms, IT suites or indeed breakfast clubs. They are a versatile and adaptable solution and can always be changed at a later date as your space requirements change.

  • Anti-scald taps.
  • Door and window finger guards.
  • Lighting proven to enhance learning.
  • Electronically controlled roof sky lights with automated ventilation management and rain sensors.
  • Alternative resource provision upgrades:
    • Intervention rooms.
    • Access control on external doors.
    • Heavy duty plasterboard to provide increased impact resistance & sound proofing to a 45db rating.
