27 Feb Modular School Facilities
Are your school facilities in need of an upgrade and a fresh renovation? Is your school suffering from an ever increasing student body but a decreasing budget?
If you answered yes to any of the questions above, well it is very possible that modular construction is a viable solution!
Modular building can save both time and money by reducing construction time, saving disturbance to you, your school students and your neighbours, whilst providing you with a permanent, cost-effective and eco-friendly solution to your space needs.
Read on to find out how modular buildings can benefit your school today.
Traditionally buildings are built on site. However, this brings a variety of problems and can cause disturbance to your school. Noise, foot traffic, pollution, inevitable delays are all reduced when buildings are built off-site. Modular buildings are constructed in three-dimension sections, called modules…hence the term modular building. They are constructed in a highly controlled factory environment, cutting out problems like weather delays and other time-wasters.
During the factory production phase, other workers can be simultaneously working at the building site laying the foundation and arranging for utilities to speed up the schedule! Did you know that you can save 30 to 50 percent off traditional build times! You can also benefit from greater flexibility in reconfiguring, relocating, and removing modular buildings as time passes and your needs change!
Many people consider modular buildings to be temporary, reflecting on the modular buildings that they spent their school days in! Often bleak, cold and damp, the school buildings that they spent their days in are a stark contrast to today’s modern, high quality and often bespoke modular solutions.
Modular buildings are beneficial when you need a structure that can stand the test of time, but still wish to save on the construction. Modular buildings are flexible, meaning that you can reconfigure sections and repurpose facilities in a few years’ time, if you wish!
With modular buildings you gain:-
- Portability and flexibility
- Faster build times
- Technology solutions and smart device integration
- Accessibility for everyone
- Energy-efficient buildings
You may still be wondering why choosing modular methods over standard construction practices can save both time and money. Modular construction methods are good for a variety of school facilities…
- Computer and science labs
- Boarding houses
- Day care
- Administrative offices
- Multi-purpose rooms
- Yoga studios
- Reflection spaces
- And many more!
Modular buildings provide you with both flexibility and creativity in choosing sizes, layouts and add-ons!
The build time is greatly reduced so that schools get their facilities done much faster than with traditional construction. As mentioned, the building process is green (environmentally-friendly), so it limits pollution and waste, and the modular approach reduces noise, dust, staging, clutter, waste, deliveries, weather concerns, as well as worker risks and on-site injuries.
If your school is looking for a bespoke, affordable solution, then modular is your answer!
