Sprung offers a unique innovative solution to a common type of buildings on the education campus, namely high quality, Sports England / Building Bulletin compliant, activity spaces. These range from a typical 4 court sports hall to a specific, highly technologically fitted our specific sports and learning buildings, such as a golf academy or cricket centre.
The buildings themselves offer all of the advantages of a traditional building, such as the permanence, life-time guarantee, ability to fit-out, type of accommodation and space; with additional advantages as standard including BREEAM excellence, SE compliant natural light, enhanced insulation, greatly reduced weather noise, lightweight construction (reducing groundworks), up to 60% saving on construction time and up to 50% cost saving.
Design wise Sprung offers further huge advantages. One client we are working with has gained 200sqm of additional floor area within the same envelope for only £225/sqm.
We are currently on-site at Millfield School with two such examples, which we can go into more detail on and are looking at three large roll-outs over the next 5 years.
