Modular classrooms are constructed off-site, in a controlled environment, before being transported to the school site and craned into position to complete the build. The modular method means less disruption to your school day, teaching environmental, school grounds and surrounding community as well as a faster and more predictable building process.
These classrooms and bespoke buildings can include anything that you, your staff and your students need from a state-of-the-art educational facility, allowing you the flexibility required to create an inspiring learning and working environment.

Types of Modular Classrooms
The image of temporary classrooms of years gone by are obsolete. Cold, dull, square portable cabins are no more.
Our steel framed buildings are designed to last so that students in years to come will find them as comfortable and inspiring as their predecessors. Light and airy, with all the very latest in heating and ventilation technology, these classrooms buildings are built as permanent structures to your educational premises.
For a humanities classroom block — where subjects such as languages and literature, geography and history take place — modular construction methods can create open, eco-conscious spaces, with lots of natural light and modern architectural features.
Fitted out internally to your exact specification and teaching requirements.
Having access to state-of-the-art science laboratories is an essential part of curriculum learning. Modular labs offer a spacious, safe environment for students, featuring sinks, extractor and ventilation systems, gas taps and experiment stations.
Keeping active and participating in sport is heavily regarded as a way of students keeping fit, improving their wellbeing as well as developing specific sports skills.
Having a dedicated area that is safe to use and can accommodate changing facilities can enhance your students physical and general well being.
The ability to maximise the space can also benefit other subjects such as dance and drama. Other uses include bringing together school communities for assemblies and whole school activities.
Arts Studios & Music Rooms
Dedicated arts facilities enhance the creative options available for students. Modular classrooms offer a variety of aesthetic options so your studio can look the part. Other features are available, such as soundproofing that benefits music rooms, and large windows so that painters and illustrators can view their masterpieces under natural lights.
Benefits of Modular Construction for Classrooms
Enhanced Speed and Efficiency
Modular construction results in a faster completion time, without sacrificing quality, thanks to efficient, off-site building methods based on time-proven principles.
As 70% of Modular school facilities are built off-site in factory-controlled environments, we can remove the perpetual obstacle of tricky weather conditions from the equation. So, with fewer risk factors within the largest chunk of the construction process, your modular teaching and learning classroom or building can be completed for one fixed price, with no unexpected delays or surprise costs.
One of the top reasons being that, with the Modulek team on your side, the planning, design, construction and final sign-off come together in an organised and efficient process that can span just 16 weeks (subject to size).
Better for the Environment
At Modulek, we combine the environmentally friendly attributes of the Modular construction process, with energy saving design solutions to dramatically reduce the carbon footprint of your classroom block.
Here’s how it’s achieved:
- We use advanced precision engineering techniques in the off-site production process, which result in much less waste in materials.
- Delivering the modular sections to your site whole reduces the amount of deliveries and trade companies needed on-site. This reduces the amount of trucks on the local roads and helps to cut CO2 emissions.
- Our Modular buildings are designed with energy efficiency in mind from the outset, and we always make sure to include energy saving solutions such as double glazing, wall/floor/ceiling insulation, and thermostatic controls where we can.
- We also incorporate the very latest energy performance parameters, as set out by the UK Government Building Regulations, with additional upgrades where required by planning stipulations to make BREEAM ‘Excellent’ achievable in all circumstances.
If you want to reduce the carbon footprint of your learning environment even further, talk to us today about installing solar panels, sedum living roofs and geothermal systems.
For a school to maintain a steady, productive learning environment for its students, there needs to be as little disruption as possible. Which is why off-site Modular construction is so sought after, with only 30% of the overall build taking place on-site to assemble the finished build, and less trade companies needed on-site for the assembling process.
Once your classroom block is complete, we can also landscape the surrounding area, making sure the new additions integrate seamlessly with the existing grounds.
