Modular Buildings For Schools From Modulek

Schools and districts are ever expanding, increasing the need for comfortable and cost-effective space for the growing number of students. New teaching methods, advances in human knowledge, and many other reasons can warrant an expansion to any school’s teaching space. This is where Modulek can help, and our modular school buildings are the perfect solution.

Often the term modular is linked to the mass, low-quality buildings required after World War II. With many buildings destroyed the need was great. However, modern technology has allowed modular school buildings to become a permanent and very high-quality alternative to traditional building methods.

There are so many benefits to modular school facilities, not least of which is the astonishing build times that accompany Modulek’s methods. The fantastic build times with modular buildings for schools stems greatly from the ability to start fabrication of the building itself at the same time as the site can be prepared. In contrast to traditional methods, which requires the site to be completely ready before any sort of construction can begin.

Our Process

First, of course, comes the planning stage. Our team will arrange a site visit that is convenient for you, giving us the opportunity to survey the site and ascertain your requirements. All of our modular school buildings are bespoke and designed to incorporate everything you need.

After a design is finalised, we’ll begin preparation of both the site and the factory fabrication. Traditionally the manufacturing stage will take between eight and ten weeks, which gives us time to complete any paperwork and apply for permissions to begin the build.

The site will also be prepared in this window, so that the completed modular school buildings can be efficiently transported and joining can begin without delay.

  • Pieces Joined
  • Sub-Floor Installed
  • Site Connections (e.g. power, water, sewerage, etc.)
  • Any Decking/Verandas Installed (If included in design)
  • Any Optional Extras Fitted

Once the construction stage is complete, the new modular school facilities will be signed off and ready to go.

Design and Regulations

As with any building process, design is an extremely important step to get right. If you’re struggling for space, our professional team will happily provide options and design plans that you can decide from. We’ll guide you through every step, consulting and clearing each step with you before moving to the next one.

Our experts will be able to give you all the information you need to make an informed decision about whether to proceed, including; detailed floorplans, sitemaps and foundations, elevation drawings, section drawings, structural calculations and CAD formatting. Modulek won’t leave anything out, and you know you’re completely in the loop throughout the process.

All modular buildings are required to be safe for habitation and usage. This is especially important where modular school buildings are concerned, due to the children. Modulek adhere to the strictest health and safety policies, both our own and mandated ones.

We will cover every part of the building regulations in detail, making sure each section of the comprehensive submission to Building Control is cleared. Sections include:

  • Floorplan Layout Drawings
  • Mechanical And Electrical Installation Layout Drawings
  • Elevation Drawings
  • Section Drawings
  • Site Plans
  • Services Layout Drawings
  • Structural Calculations
  • Energy Performance Certification

The design process incorporates the building regulations requirements throughout, so that your new modular buildings for schools are the safest, greenest and most durable available.

Why Use Modular School Buildings?

It’s a common concern that something produced in a factory and pieced together on site won’t be as effective or enduring as a traditionally constructed building. Our team at Modulek pride themselves on proving those concerns moot time and time again.

The advantages of modular school buildings speak for themselves and they speak loudly. The first and most obvious advantage; the build times. Usually, modular school facilities take between three and four months to complete after the design is finalised. This is compared to the 7-10 month build times for traditional methods, depending on the size and complexity of the design.

On-site construction isn’t delayed by adverse weather, because the fabricated pieces are already sealed and weather resistant. This is especially useful for a country that has rain for almost 42% of the year. This allows for year-round construction, regardless of cold, heat, rain or snow etc.

Schools today suffer from underfunding on almost every level, which is why our methods and processes lead to exceptionally cost-effective methods of achieving that much needed expansion. Shorter build times lead to lower costs, which are reflected in the competitive prices Modulek offers.

The entire process is greener for the environment. Modular construction produces less waste products, up to an 80% reduction in waste, and saves on CO2 by up to a surprising 60%. Up to 50% reduced water usage during construction and many of the materials used in our modular designs are widely recycled. [1]

On top of the outright savings, modular school buildings show up to a 60% reduction in yearly CO2 emissions, which means lower heating costs and savings throughout the life of the building.
