What is Modular?

What do you think of when you hear “modular”? A box? Separate units? There is something brilliantly simple about a modular build which makes it the perfect solution to your need for space. Schools can easily reach capacity with the rise in population meaning expansions need to be made or whole new classrooms may need building. The most cost-effective and fast solution is a modular building. Read on to find out why this could be the answer for your school.

So, What is a Modular Build?

Yes, a modular build is in pieces. The whole thing is constructed off site, away from the school site for minimum disruption. From there, the pieces of the building are transported onto site and quickly assembled leaving no mess or damage to school grounds. What is maybe seen initially as a box will be transformed into your brand new classroom, staff room, office, gym or whatever else your school requires. A safe space to expand in. Buildings for Schools even offer bespoke options for you to design your building as you wish to suit it to your school. External cladding options allow for different looks and colours for example, fitting the build naturally into your grounds.

What Will Happen During the Process

Nothing that you will need to go out of your way for! Other than an initial site visit and the installation all you need to do is go about your school day while we provide you with a design and construct your building. The design can even be tweaked to your preference if needs be. You can see a step-by-step guide on the Buildings for Schools site if you wish to know more, or why not give us a call? We are always happy to help out!

How Long Will My Build Last?

With good up-keep and suitable maintenance there is no reason why a modular building should fail you. The beauty of them is that any section can be replaced or upgraded should ever they need to be. Look after your building as you would any other and it will surely look after you.

How Can I Customise it For My School?
