School Buildings - Why Modular Buildings Are a Great Idea
Educational establishments often want to expand their premises to accommodate additional students or facilities, or update existing ones. A New science block, additional recreational facilities or a better gym are high priority undertakings for many schools and universities. Unfortunately, plans often get little further than meeting room discussions. Yet a modern, nurturing and inspiring environment can make for more efficient and productive staff and happier, more positive attitudes from pupils or students, making a big difference to the school as a whole.

The Problem

There are many reasons why extensions are knocked back by various stakeholders including:

build time
disruption of education
environmental impact.

It often takes months to build even a small extension such as an extra science block or a roomier common area and the noise and pollutants from the build can affect the learning and working environment. The build is dependent on good working weather, trustworthy construction teams and the ability to get traffic to and from the construction site on a daily basis.

Whilst schools assess these issues or commission building projects, they often find themselves in need of a temporary solution to their space problem, and approach modular buildings companies to obtain temporary portable cabins; those ugly, square, flat-roofed boxes can be seen in playgrounds up and down the country. These portable cabins however are only a small part of what these companies can actually offer, and more and more schools are starting to realise the potential of this modern type of building.

The Solution

Many schools are now extending their existing premises with permanent modular extensions; bespoke, high quality buildings are designed with the school, built in individual 'modules' in a factory and installed on the school grounds. The nature of the build means that the costs are lower and the whole project can be completed in much less time than a traditional build. The factory conditions lend themselves to an efficient, high standard manufacture independent of factors such as the weather or daily vehicle access. The necessary pre-installation on-site (such as laying foundations) can be done whilst the building is being made and the installation and connection of the modules can often be done in weeks or even days. Design, manufacturing and assembly can often be done by the same company saving you precious time. This means the whole project can be completed during the six week holiday, and be ready before the start of term.
