By 2023, an additional 880,000 school places will be required for extra pupils across the UK.
Many schools are looking to expand to accommodate these pupils; modular construction methods are proving a popular choice.
Offsite buildings can be built within eight weeks, with minimal disruption on site, which is ideal for an educational environment.
Oughtibridge Primary School contracted Roan Building Solutions to deliver a low cost, fast installation for its new educational facility.
Alongside Oughtibridge Primary, Roan is working with eight other schools this year. Some of these include Wandsworth’s Granard Primary School and Tonbridge Grammar School, which is based in Deakin Leas.
Roan was appointed by Oughtibridge Primary following a comprehensive tender, in which it surpassed the school’s evaluation criteria and offered information on how modular construction could meet its needs.
The company also provided ample knowledge of the local area, promising to reduce the impact the build would have on the community; this appealed to the school.
BIM technology was used to help the school to visualise how the building would look, whilst a reduction of carbon emissions was also promised.
Roan began piling in April; the entire process was predicted to take around 13 weeks, with the majority of work taking place out of school time to minimise disruption.
The company intends to build Oughtibridge Primary’s new facility on its existing car park.
At over 200 square metres, it will accommodate the head teacher’s office, staff room, intervention room and two new classrooms, with adjoining cloakrooms and toilets.
A steel-framed polycarbonate canopy will be fitted to cover the ground floor classroom entrance, which will create an enclosed play area.
