Modular Educational Buildings
New teaching facilities for schools and colleges can be configured to meet the client’s brief in a variety of architectural styles, and assembled as learning clusters or as a single stand alone classroom either for permanent or temporary use.
Completed: simple stand-alone five-classroom, two storey building 460 m²
This independent five-classroom, two-storey building is located adjacent to the main school. Assembled from flat-pack elements, it was completed with minimal disruption to the children, staff and parents.
It provides 460 sq metres of accommodation which consists of three 62 m² classrooms on the ground floor, a fully equipped art studio with storage room, a large classroom, two tutorial rooms and toilets on the first floor.
The project was handed over within twenty weeks and erected by the delivery system integrators, a team of four with an additional electrician and a plumbing and heating engineer delivering the mechanical and electrical installation, and a decorating team, aided by one forklift on an ad-hoc basis. Without the continuous use of plant, the normal noise and dust pollution that is present with a traditional construction was virtually eliminated creating a safe environment allowing the school to operate unhindered.
The building was erected towards the end of 2014/15 during the wettest period ever recorded in the UK.
The exterior has been clad in a composite cladding system to provide minimum maintenance.
Site waste was kept to a minimum in comparison to traditional build methods and up until the finishing’s element of the final fit-out just three skips had been used.
Using this offsite solution allowed predictability in programming and a guaranteed quality to achieve the “right first-time” philosophy, resulting in minimal snagging.
