Benefits of a modular classroom

 

Do you need more teaching space? Is your school currently undergoing construction or renovation work?

Modular classrooms can provide a temporary or permanent learning environment to accommodate increasing student populations and changing curriculum needs.

These structures are constructed off-site before being transported to your school grounds, allowing for quick assembly. Modular buildings can easily be modified and moved as and when your needs change, making them a future-proof investment for your educational establishment.

 

What can modular classrooms be used for?

Modular classrooms can be used to solve a myriad of problems for schools and nurseries, colleges and universities.

One of the most common applications of a modular classroom is to provide additional classroom space. This is especially useful for schools with larger class sizes (more than 30 students in each year).

Modular classrooms can also be used to extend your existing facilities and accommodate breakfast and after-school clubs. Alternatively, with the simple addition of shelves, seating and computers, your building could serve as a library.

Likewise, if your school often hosts internal or external sports competitions, you may consider using a modular classroom as a changing room, shower block, locker room or gymnasium. WC and shower facilities are routinely installed into our modular buildings.

When compared with traditionally-built structures, modular classrooms offer several advantages.

Let’s take a look at them.

What can modular classrooms be used for?

6 ways modular classrooms can benefit the education sector

 

1.    A modular classroom is faster and cheaper to construct

Modular buildings can usually be up and running 70% faster than traditional builds, providing schools with the additional space they need without disrupting staff and students.

 

2.    Modular classrooms are more customisable

Modular classroom buildings can be kitted out with the latest technology and amenities, including high-speed internet, interactive whiteboards and energy-efficient lighting and heating systems.

With a choice of exterior finishes and contemporary architectural details, they look as great as they perform.

Whether your building will serve as a cafeteria, science lab, computer suite or music room, our bespoke approach means that we can design and configure it to meet the specific needs of your school, college or university.

 

3.    Modular construction offers greater flexibility for schools

Modular classrooms can be used permanently or temporarily, depending on the needs of your nursery, school, college or university.

A modular building can be ideal if you’re having building work done and need a little extra space for a short period of time. A temporary classroom can be installed and ready to use in a matter of days. As soon as the construction process is finished, it will be disassembled and moved elsewhere.

If you require a more permanent solution for additional space, a modular classroom will give your school or educational establishment the flexibility to adapt.

 

4.    Modular school buildings are sustainable

Off-site construction in our controlled factory environment means that we are able to closely control all aspects of the construction of our modular buildings.

From sourcing sustainable building materials to controlling and reducing the carbon footprint of our operations and those of our suppliers, we can help you to meet the aim of your Environmental policy.

 

5.    Modular classrooms offer enhanced quality control

One of the biggest advantages of modular construction is that structures are built in a factory-controlled environment, meaning quality can be controlled far more effectively than it would be on a traditional building site.

 

6.    Extra classroom space with less disruption

Modular classrooms are built off-site, making them quicker to install than traditional construction methods.

Creating less noise, pollution and mess, modular classrooms ensure minimal disruption to your school site. They effectively reduce the need for school closures – allowing staff to continue teaching and students to study as usual whilst building work is in progress.
