Modular School Buildings – Past – Present – Future

11 Sep Modular School Buildings – Past – Present – Future

modular leisure building

School has begun, and you have just been told how your budget is going to be allocated for the next year. You have been told that you are going to be creating a new classroom facility, to accommodate the fact that you already bulging out of the seams of your existing building. You have been told to explore the modular building option. You reflect back to the ancient past of grey, bleak buildings with leaky roofs, rotten floors, no insulation, un-regulated temperature, no double glazing….the list could go on. But wait…times have changed…read on to see how, and to be convinced that modular is the right choice.

So many schools have projects that have strict budgets, and this makes it very difficult to choose a building that can meet all your requirements. By choosing a modular building, you will be utilising the best of space, whilst achieving your dream building, all at a fixed price, with no hidden costs. You can choose your own design, tailor made to suit you, along with the groundworks and landscaping requirements, as well as internal requirements. Whatever we discussed with you at our initial design meeting, you will get it.

Many schools opt to have their buildings installed in holiday time, meaning that there is less risk of young children being injured. However, this can cause pressure, with very tight deadlines that may be difficult to meet when traditional construction methods are used. With modular construction, speed is of utmost importance, and your building will  be ready for you to occupy, by the time the children come back, creating a seamless transition from old to new!

You may have heard of the newly coined term ‘Offsite Construction’. This simply means that the building is constructed offsite in a factory controlled environment, where quality control checks take place, to ensure you get the highest quality modular building that is currently available, and so that you don’t experience any delays, as groundworks and site preparation can occur on site, whilst your building is manufactured.

One thing that we often talk about these days, is whether a building is going to scar the landscape, or whether it will seamlessly blend in with its existing surroundings. When you sit down with the design team you will be able to choose from several different cladding and exterior options. It is at this stage that you will be able to create a building that is bespoke to you, as well as looking as if it has been there since time began!

Have you ever stopped to think about how energy efficient modular buildings are? With triple A-rated energy ratings, modular classrooms cost as little as 65p per day to run! You can also incorporate all the latest gadgets such as solar panels, smart controls, so you can be sure that your building will be a state-of-the-art building when it comes to being environmentally friendly!

We understand how important it is to make every building accessible for all, so if you need very bespoke requirements to include accessible changing areas or non-slip flooring, you can be rest assured that this will be achieved.
