Portable Classrooms For Schools & Nurseries

It is a proven and acknowledged fact that when it comes to children’s education, the learning environment is critical to a child’s early development.

However, we understand the pressures that schools and nurseries are under and in particular the financial restraints frustrating your desire to improve the learning environment for the children in your care. We may have an answer.

Springfield have been providing a solution to this growing problem for over 40 years.  Schools across the UK tell us our durable and child-safe portable buildings are the perfect solution where construction time and pupil safety are of the essence. Our off-site methods offer all the benefits of a traditional build at a fraction of the cost and time.

At Springfield we offer a completely bespoke turnkey service through which your dedicated project manager can organise as much or as little support as necessary. From designing a new tailor-made building to liaising with contractors and local councils, we strive to offer a cost-effective expansion solution; your building, your way.

The Advantages of Portable Classrooms

A portable building is a self-contained building which is produced off-site. In our case they are produced in our ISO-approved workshop in St Helens, and can be delivered anywhere across mainland UK. Our portable classrooms 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.

Constructed off-site in our ISO-approved production facility, portable classrooms have distinct advantages for schools and nurseries who opt for more traditional construction methods:

  • Fast turnaround times:  We can deliver your portable classroom in just a few weeks if needs be.
  • Lower costs: Our off-site methods mean that costs for portable classrooms are much cheaper in comparison to traditional builds.
  • Less disruption: Portable classrooms are constructed off-site and delivered to be installed at your school. This means we will only need to be on site for a matter of days – limiting the disruption to your pupils.

We know the prospect of expanding your school is daunting, but we have a wealth of experience in providing thousands of portable classrooms across the UK. Through this experience, we have been able to fine tune our processes to ensure we offer a fast, efficient, hassle-free, budget-friendly way to expand your school or nursery.

Our experienced team can also provide a complete turnkey package to ensure everything is taken care of, from the initial design process to the finishing touches on your build, including planning, groundworks and utilities.

Portable Classroom Features

Our strong relationships with schools and education authorities across the UK has led our research and development team to produce many innovations to help make our buildings child friendly. These can include:

  • Anti-scald taps
  • Door & 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 35db rating

Each of our buildings can be specified and fitted out as suitable for use as assembly halls, IT suites, after school, laboratories, canteens, exclusion & reflection rooms, and many more options.
