09 Jan Modular Buildings for Sports & Leisure
Do you run a local sports club? Are you needing a new building but aren’t sure how to go about it?
Then read on…
Are you needing an affordable, attractive building that is perfect for your sporting and leisure activities?
Then look no further than using modular construction as a way of creating a building of your dreams.
Wanting to choose a building that provides a light, airy space and that makes an environment that is warm and welcoming? A modular building can be customized to blend in with any surrounding, be it an urban park, a rural countryside spot or even the coast… the sky is the limit as they say!
Modular buildings are designed to be flexible. They can be smart. They can be casual. They can be what you want. That means they can be designed and adapted to give communities exactly what they are looking for, in any situation to suit each and every need. Modular sports pavilions can be used for so many things that the list below could go on forever, but here is a start of what you could use it for…
- Sports club houses
- Cricket pavilions
- Bowling pavilion and club room
- Changing rooms and public toilet blocks
- Gym/Fitness Studios
- Clubhouse, bar or café
- Poolside house
- Visitor centre, kiosk or café
- Office and administrative use
But why use Modular? There are so many benefits to using modular construction.
Here are just a few of the advantages…
- 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.
- Running Costs
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!!
