12 Mar Modular Buildings for Sport Facilities
Are your current training facilities starting to look dilapidated and tired?
Then look no further to find a solution that is affordable!
As the Government of England announces that ‘Britain needs to go on a diet’ and Macmillan Cancer launches a hangman style advert saying that obesity is the second largest cause of cancer, then surely it is time to be encouraging the children of today to exercise, keep fit and to look after their bodies so they don’t get impacted by deadly diseases? But how can we encourage our children to be ‘body positive’ and to care for their bodies when bombarded by social media? Why not go back to the good old fashioned ‘burpees’, squats, skipping and football to get them exercising? But, I hear you say, how can I motivate them if our training facilities are in poor condition? Well, now is your opportunity to revamp your training facilities to something that is modern, well-built and affordable.
Do you want a building that provides a light, airy space and that makes an environment that is warm and welcoming? A modular building can be customised to blend in with any environment, from rural to urban to coast, a modular building can do just that. The only limit is your imagination!
Modular buildings are designed to be:-
- Designed to meet your needs
But what are the benefits of offsite construction when compared to traditional methods of construction?
Eco-friendly building materials
Throughout all processes, modular industry has adopted an environmental approach. This means that eco-friendly building materials such as heat treated ThermowoodTM can be used, lowering the environmental impact of prefabricated builds and reducing the overall waste consumption.
Modular buildings are built in a highly controlled environment, instead of on-site at a project location, hence the newly coined term ‘Offsite Construction’. Obsolete materials that would normally be sent to the rubbish dump, are now being recycled in other projects and for different purposes. Not only that, but the materials themselves are eco-friendly, right from day one of your project.
Reduced energy consumption
By going modular, energy consumption is reduced. Because the modules are build in a controlled environment, the energy poured into the assembly process is only marginal compared to what would happen when using traditional build. To add to this, the use of double glazed windows, heat/cool air conditioning and insulation, provide the building with greater energy efficiency, reducing heat loss and saving money on your heating bills. Recessed LED lighting means that you have brighter lights for those dark days and you have lights that are reliable and require low maintenance.
Modular buildings can be installed utilising the latest generation eco-friendly photovoltaic technologies and solar water heating systems to harvest energy from the sun, minimising energy consumption and reducing the overall impact on the environment.
Photovoltaic cell systems (PV) harness solar energy to generate electricity in order to run appliances and lighting. Solar water heating systems utilise heat from the sun to supplement conventional water heating installations, which typically rely upon considerable power consumption. Combining these renewable technologies into our leading modular and portable building designs, carbon footprints can be greatly offset.
Modular buildings are available in just weeks, helping communities who have a tight budget as well as reducing the impact on the local environment.
‘Speed is of the essence’ is displayed in a new light, when you have your new modular sport building installed. Your building is ready within weeks, allowing your community and your teams to flourish in a vibrant, fresh environment that has been built with the environment in mind.
Less noise pollution
Because the eco-building is completed in a factory, the construction site will require considerably fewer personnel than a traditional site would. Noise pollution is reduced dramatically because there is no need for building material deliveries, large numbers of staff or noisy on-site machinery. Besides benefiting the environment this means your community and club users can carry on with their sporting efforts without too much disturbance whilst you receive less complaints and your building can be installed harmoniously and peacefully within the surrounding community.
Sport England Funding
If you want to be successful with your Sport England Funding, then use modular construction.
And to finish, did you know that an eco-modular building can cost you as little as 95p per day in running costs for a single module and last for 60 years, if not longer? Definitely worth the investment!!
