Ingleton Wood were appointed initially to undertake a feasibility to deliver a new small classroom block to accommodate an influx of new students. The requirements were; 3/4 classrooms, high cost efficiency, robust facilities and a completion within 9 months. Due to tight constraints on time on site and for completion, modular off-site construction was considered the most appropriate.
As Employer’s Agent Ingleton Wood, following design development, tendered to Modular AR. Planning approval was granted in Q2 and off-site construction commenced shortly after. The modular construction method allowed for the building to be constructed off site with all bar the final fix electrical and the external and ceiling finishes left until on site. Time on site was reduced significantly and decreased disruption to the School.
The level of quality, detailing and specification remained high. The end result was a high-quality robust finish, imperceptible from that of traditional construction.
The development used modern methods of heating and cooling, avoiding the need for significant gas and water utilities and included toilets and kitchen. Externally, alternative construction materials were utilised such as resin brick slip cladding panels rather than traditional brick. This brick cladding and coloured render panels in place of brick and Trespa provided a cost-effective solution whilst providing a sympathetic appearance.
