19 Jun What will your school look like in 20 years…in 30 years?
In twenty years…in thirty years…have you considered what your school will look like? Will it be an environment that will continue to inspire generations of learners? Will it encourage creativity? Will it promote innovation? Will it be sustainable?
For many independent schools, one of the main challenges is property maintenance and development. It is a specialist field, that requires background knowledge, planning, and a lot of foresight – however it is also one that can have an immediate impact on your schools’ facilities., your school learning environment, capacity and finances.
Are you short on space? Or do you simply wish to offer specialist classrooms for extra-curricular activities such as yoga, Zumba or specialist STEM environments? Whatever the situation, it is important that your building project runs to plan, on time and on-budget. Many independent school facility managers and senior management team leaders are time-conscious, and know that they just haven’t got the resources, time or the money to do this well.
Modular buildings can be completed quickly, are affordable, are bespoke and are of a very high calibre. Guaranteed to last at least 50 years, this low-cost, factory-built solution can be installed during the school holiday period, to keep disruption to a minimum.
Today’s bespoke, luxury modular learning environments are made from the best sustainably sourced materials, to create an environment that is inspiring, comfortable, light, airy and modern.
Have you considered the flexibility of a modular school building? Your new building can be a multifunctional unit that serves more than one purpose, changing to suit your current needs and requirements, as well as adopting to future requirements.
Modular school buildings are bespoke. When you sit down with your modular designer, you can create your functional layout, creating a bespoke solution for your requirements. The result? A comfortable environment with everything that your school will need to achieve its hopes and aspirations. Have you ever dreamt of having a building in the school’s branded colours? Modular offers you the chance to choose a cladding layout in your colours, creating a building that reflects the high quality of your school brand!
Did you know that modular buildings are sustainable in all sense of the word? Modular buildings are energy efficient…costing you as little as 65p per day to run! Have you considered integrating state-of-the-art smart learning technologies such as Alexa classroom technology…maybe on that day you don’t feel like teaching you will be going “Alexa, teach the kids today!”? Why not add some solar panels to your roof to create a building that harnesses the sunlight that we do have, and converts into energy for your building? Whatever you decide, you can be rest assured that your new modular school will be a state-of-the-art building that is environmentally friendly, and a sustainable solution that will last for many generations!
There’s no limit to what you can do with the extra space provided by a new modular school building…here are just a few ideas…
- Reflection centre
- Classroom space
- Collaborative spaces
- Music room
- Canteen area
- Yoga studio
- Gym/PE space

- And many more!
There’s one thing for certain…however you choose to use your modular school building you can be certain you have got a sustainable, long-term, space-saving solution for your school!
