Modular School Buildings

Modern Methods of Construction lend themselves perfectly for the design and construction of new school buildings that benefit from a truly unique modular approach.

A modular school building is one that is constructed off-site as individual units and is then transported to site and erected into a complete building. Modular school buildings are the perfect solution to additional  classroom blocks, sports halls, science labs, humanities blocks and sixth form buildings. The end results is often indistinguishable from a traditional school building.

How We Create Your Modular School Buildings

We provide our clients with a step by step start to finish service while keeping them informed every step of the way. Our process to create perfect modular school buildings is proven, simple and has been appreciated by many. We can provide the solutions  without complications and ensure that the journey from design through to completion is smooth and stress-free.  

Here’s more about each step of the process:


1. Planning and Design 

From your first enquiry to us, you will receive the highest levels of customer care. We will arrange a site visit, so we can meet you and discuss your aspirations and understand your existing site. 

We provide a full design and planning service and apply and oversee all the planning permissions and building regulations. 

We ensure that the design and layout meets your requirements now whilst also considering your future needs. 

All of our buildings are designed to meet the strictest of building regulations, and we submit a comprehensive file of documents to the planning department on your behalf.

We can display your designs clearly using the most up-to-date technology, so your plans can be easily presented to various parties. With a clear representation of the designs, we can perfect the finer details of the design before you give us the go-ahead to construct your modular school building.


2. Manufacturing

We manufacture all of our modular school buildings in an offsite factory. Our in house team of construction professionals are highly experienced, skilled and are trained to the highest standards.

We assign each modular build with a project manager who will ensure that high standards are maintained and drawings are adhered. We also allocate a dedicated site manager to ensure that all health and safety protocols are adhered to and that disruption is kept to an absolute minimum.  

By constructing our modular school buildings off-site, we minimise disruption and closely monitor each phase so the build happens as smoothly as possible. While our team of skilled construction professionals are busy working offsite, we have another team on-site preparing the ground, laying foundations and organising any services that are needed. As soon as the modules are delivered, installation is quick and efficient. The building is constructed in front of your very eyes. 


3. Installation 

As part of the initial site visit and planning application, we ensure there is suitable site access and permits in place, so the haulage lorries can deliver the modules easily. We are specialists in providing solutions for sites with difficult access and working on live sites. The modules are craned into position by our highly experienced team and the whole process usually takes less than 2 days for the building to be installed. 

Our full turnkey solution includes all of the below:

  • Base preparation and foundations
  • Service connections to water, gas, electricity, etc
  • Drainage connections and surface water storage
  • Delivery and installation
  • Access/escape ramps or steps
  • Fire alarm linking to existing buildings
  • Data installations
  • Furniture and fittings (if required)

4. Finishing touches 

Once your modular school building has been constructed, we can landscape the surrounding area, tarmac or gravel new pathways, fence new outdoor spaces and even deck outside areas. 

The building is not handed over to you until it is fit for purpose, and you can welcome your staff and pupils in.
