Permanent & Temporary Prefabricated School Buildings
Schools, nurseries and universities face challenges of expanding in a safe way or planning to create a superior place to learn.
The great news is, that whatever you’re planning, we have your solution: a new modular classroom.
Our buildings go well beyond DfE area guidelines. They’re built for optimal thermal comfort, great air quality and good acoustics. They conform to building regulations and all relevant legislation. They are custom-designed, and look great, inside and out.
Costs are around 50% less than a full-scale building project, with an average 70% time-saving. This is due to the benefits of offsite construction and is less disruptive to students’ learning.
Our expertise gained from over 15 years of experience means we supply the right building for you, stress-free.
Whether your new classroom is a temporary building or a permanent addition to your school’s learning environment, we can help you. We also have a partner if you need help to finance your building.
What Works Well...
- Our modular buildings are versatile: you can use them singly; you can link them; you can create a multi-storey block. Whatever the facility you need for your learning environment, whatever the size, we can create it.
- We can integrate your new modular space with your existing school buildings so everything blends in and nothing looks like an add-on.
- Whether you’re a nursery, a primary or junior school, or in secondary or higher education, our classroom solutions are available in a range of cost-efficient sizes. For more information, see our article on how much does a modular classroom cost.
- We offer you a wide range of internal layouts and finishes, and your space becomes exactly what you need it to be. Find out more on how classrooms are made to be just right.
- Whether you’re after a traditional or a contemporary exterior finish, we have an extensive range of options for finishes and cladding. If you want a building that blends in, or you want to make a stylish, modern statement that your students and their parents will love, we design and create to your specification.
- Our classrooms are future-proof: they can be moved as your school’s needs change, so your investment is safe.
- They come ready to use with heating, plumbing and electrics supplied complete.
- Installation is quick and disruption to the life of your school is minimal.
All our modular school buildings come with an energy performance certificate (EPC) and are BB93, BB101 and BB103 compliant.
Even Better If...
- Your new Science lab comes equipped with benches, sinks and non-slip flooring.
- Your Music suite has up-to-the-minute acoustic treatments and soundproofing.
- Your Studio has blackout drapes, full-length mirrors and great acoustics.
- Your Food Tech classroom has food prep and cooking facilities and temperature-controlled storage space.
Benefits Of Modular Construction
Our modular educational buildings are built with a steel frame in our factory, where quality control is our top priority. We custom-design and build to meet your precise requirements, down to the last detail.
When we’re absolutely certain your new classroom is exactly what it’s supposed to be, we put it on an HGV, drive it to your site, and crane it into position.
Please make sure your site is accessible by our lorry, and that our crane can get in to lift the modules into position – sometimes, sports fields aren’t the easiest places to access! (They’re also often quite a distance from key services, which can have time and cost implications, so consider the potential location of your new mobile classroom carefully.)
Allow for about 1–2 working days on-site, and our skilled, experienced team doing what they love best. After that, we’ll need around another 5–7 working days for fit-out with the relevant trades, to do the things that just can’t be done off-site.
Disruption to your students’ learning is kept to the bare minimum.
There's A Refurbished Option Too
We’re aware that education’s seemingly “elastic” budget has been stretched endlessly for years, and we’ll do our best to help you get what you want if you just can’t afford to buy new.
We have a range of pre-owned, refurbished buildings available, which can be modified to fit your needs, resulting in a much lower overall cost than a new product. (You’re also benefiting your environment, which students, parents and governors will all appreciate – sustainability is a key win here!)
Your New Classroom – A Pain-Free Reality
The education sector is not an easy space to work in – our years of helping educators find effective solutions to their classroom space problems have shown us this very clearly.
That’s why we offer a full, turnkey service: we can do everything from groundworks to installing mains services; from interior fit-out to exterior cladding; from full installation to on-going maintenance, whether your mobile classroom building is bespoke or refurbished.
So, if you’re a school business manager, a headteacher, a governor, a facilities manager or a school administrator, we’ll help you navigate the route to your new modular classroom, through all the legislation and regulations, all the way to the final project delivery.
