Modern Methods of Construction: Providing Outstanding Learning Spaces for Pupils

We have said many times before just how important learning spaces are in schools. We can see from recent industry research as well as our own insights that many more modular schools are beginning to be built.


30 new modular schools per year for the next four years across the UK

In recent industry news, it has been revealed that a panel of contractors will deliver 30 new modular schools per year for the next four years across the UK.

Pound Hill Junior School has recently been installed, with the installation consisting of 12 classrooms, a sports hall and ancillary rooms over two storeys. This replaced an old building and some temporary units that were being used to house the schools 360 students.

This new framework highlights the continued shift in government preference toward modern methods of construction for educational projects. The main objective of the framework is to deliver schools that are cost-efficient, of premium quality, and manufactured predominantly using offsite modular techniques. Modular buildings are the ideal solution to deliver the quantity and quality of educational buildings that are desired, at the fraction of the cost of a traditional build.


Modular classrooms for schools and nurseries

As the learning environment that children work in is so critical it is important that schools across the UK feel as though they are being supported when it comes to the vision of their ideal classrooms. The education sector is consistently under financial restraints which can prove a challenge the schools looking to update the learning environment the children in their care.

Springfield modular buildings can offer a bright, airy and stimulating learning environment for your pupils, with internal and external design chosen by you. They are also building regulation compliant and energy efficient.
