Modular Education Buildings by Cotaplan
Modular Education Buildings
There are many modular education buildings across the United Kingdom that Cotaplan are responsible for fitting with plenty of happy clients. If you are planning an extension to your current building or you want a new section or complete new building altogether then please get in touch with Cotaplan today on 0800 7999049.
Educational facilities are extremely important in today’s world. With a population growth rate which is expected to reach 6 billion people by 2040, the need to develop areas of learning has never been higher. Yet, many educational facility construction projects are delayed or never started due to the budget, safety issues, or the time which on-site construction presents.
Modular construction of educational facilities offers a modern solution to a long standing problem, “How can our educational facility be built or expanded without risking the safety and well-being of those we are trying to educate?” The answer is quite simple; have the building constructed off site.
We build buildings not boxes
Modular buildings are vast in their styles and designs. The layout can be one story or multi-levelled, simple or complex. The thought that modular buildings have to have a boxy, industrial look is simply not true. The truth of the matter is that buildings which can be constructed on site can be constructed off-site with the same if not higher quality. Educational modular facilities are pushing the envelope in modern styles, designs, materials, and construction methods. Some of the modular buildings which we have constructed have rivalled some of the most luxurious facilities in the area. We think outside of the box, we don’t construct them.
High Standards, lower risks
One of the main reasons that educational facilities do not conduct additional facilities or start construction on a new facility is due to safety issues, especially when it comes to facilities where small children are present. In on-site construction the educational facility must take into account that there will be heavy machinery, materials, and other possible threats (including allergens in the air from the construction process) which could threaten the safety of those being educated. Most educational facilities for this fact will either avoid construction entirely or try to have the facility constructed during the vacation/off season.
Consider, a building which would take 8 months to build on-site is constructed during the off season in 3 by an on-site company. Red flags should go up concerning either the ethics or the building practices of that firm. If the building was to take 8 months then the odds are that some corners and standards are being cut to meet the deadline. If the building could be constructed in 2 months then why say it was 8 months?
Modular construction allows for you to have the same building, built to the same standards as that of an on-site building in less time and for a fraction of the cost. Modular homes have the same if not greater standards applied to them as on-site construction, but can be made quicker. In most cases your building can be delivered to your site in a matter of days. From there the finishing interior construction and such needed work can be completed in as little as 8 weeks.
Building which promotes change
One of the innovated benefits of using modular construction is that the materials used can be up to 80% recycled and energy efficient products. You can also implement larger windows, skylights, and such features as promote greener efficiency into your design without sacrificing structure stability.As educators strive to convey that the world has limited resources and that it is up to the children and future generations to find methods of preserving our resources, modular construction contributes greatly to passing this knowledge on to those which are educated at your facility. Furthermore, by using in-house technologies and methodologies for constructing your educational facility you greatly reduce the emissions and use of heavy equipment and minimize the damage done to the earth through the constant use of machinery going through the site.
Modular building construction encourages those which are being educated by your facility to seek modern methods to address traditional problems. In on-site construction there are limitations to the layout as well as to where a building can be constructed. By using in-house modular construction, many of these issues become non-existent. Because the building is constructed in various parts and delivered to a site, construction can be done in almost any area. Floorplans are not restricted by the limitations of the on-site team because the facility is constructed in a place where those limitations do not exist. In fact, in many situations a building which would have limitations in the on-site construction does not exist in the in-house construction.
If you have any questions on how we can help you in the construction of your Education facility, modular construction and how it can benefit your business, or if you have questions regarding any of our services or practices, we would love to hear from you. As each project is different, we will work one-on-one with you to answer all questions that you may have, determine the best solution to your educational facility construction, and construct the best building based upon those needs.
