Synopsis

From their sustainability and dependable build programmes, to the substantial cost and time savings they offer, modular construction is top of the class when it comes to providing a conducive learning environment.

With space presently at a premium, and pupil numbers forecasted to increase over the coming years, many schools and early learning centres are finding themselves in need of a fast, cost-effective solution to their space issues. Offering up to 50% reductions in both spend and build time, modular construction is uniquely placed to solve this problem with minimal expense and disruption.

Modular construction methods consist of buildings being constructed as separate units in a specialist factory and then installed on-site to form a complete building. This means that while the building is being manufactured offsite, groundwork on site can run concurrently, speeding up the build programme. These time savings reduce disruption to schools and can significantly decrease costs.

The offsite construction method also lends itself to a stringent quality control process, where buildings are created in-line with strict tolerances and waste production is minimised to almost zero.

The modern day modular is nothing like the historic perceptions of box-like demountable classrooms, with low quality finishes. Colourful rain screen, curtain walling, barrel or butterfly roofing; modular can now provide the architectural touches previously reserved exclusively for traditional buildings, but in less time and at a reduced cost.
