Jewel Academy

Jewell Academy, which is a member of the Aspirations Academies Trust, needed to expand their teaching facilities and build 14 new classrooms in a very short time frame. Our unique hybrid construction method in conjunction with our in house design team provided the exact traditional looking building that was required.

The turnkey project was the design and build of a bespoke two-storey building. The new extension building provides the school with an additional 14 classrooms, a hall suitable for PE and drama, group rooms, a library and an administration area. The new building is twice the size of the existing school buildings, enabling the school to grow.

Designed and finished to a very high standard, externally the building is a mixture of render brickwork and timber cladding giving the building the appearance of a traditionally constructed extension. Internally the finishes defy the modular logic with fully plastered walls, suspended ceiling, and cement board flooring ensuring the construction provides all the feel and appearance of a traditional building. External works included playgrounds, MUGA courts and a staff car park.

“I have been extremely impressed with the professionalism and high standards of the Modulek team. The finished product is something Modulek can be very proud of. Thank-you.”

Principal, Jewell Academy
