    Prefabricated School Building Construction

    As modular school buildings are manufactured off-site, the labour costs and duration of construction is drastically decreased. Many of our school buildings take, on average, 6-8 weeks to complete on site which means that both pupils and staff won’t have to wait long to be able to enjoy and utilise the new facilities and workspace our prefabricated school buildings provide. Modular’s shorter construction period is also advantageous to schools as the prefabricated building can be erected during the school holidays when the site isn’t in use. The prompt turnaround makes them ideal for use as temporary school buildings.

    By buying, leasing or hiring a modular school building, you’ll be able to ensure your lessons and classes resume promptly with as little disruption as possible to the education of the pupils.

    Installing modular buildings requires only a fraction of the machinery that bricks-and-mortar construction needs resulting in a safer and less disruptive on-site working area. This can be extremely important when it comes to ensuring your students’ safety during the construction period.

    Modular School Buildings – FAQs

    What are modular school buildings?

    Modular school buildings, also known as prefabricated or off-site constructed buildings, are innovative structures that are revolutionising the way educational facilities are designed and constructed. These buildings are created by assembling pre-manufactured components off-site in our factory at Cotaplan, using advanced technologies and quality materials. Once the building components are finished, they are transported to your school and assembled on-site, resulting in a quicker construction process than traditional construction methods.

    Are modular school buildings safe in the UK?

    Modular school buildings are designed with the same level of safety and durability as traditional brick-and-mortar buildings. These structures are constructed using reliable materials that are designed to withstand the elements and resist wear and tear over time. 

    The materials used in the construction of modular construction at Cotaplan are carefully selected to meet rigorous safety standards, and all of our buildings come equipped with fire retardant materials and fire suppression systems, such as fire sprinklers and smoke detectors.

    Find out how prefab school buildings can enhance the safety and security of your school by getting in touch with our team today.

    How long does it take to construct a modular school?

    The timeline for constructing a modular school building can vary depending on the size and complexity of the project, as well as factors such as weather conditions, transportation logistics, and site preparation. However, on average, a modular school building can be constructed in a much shorter timeframe than traditional construction.

    The modular construction process involves assembling pre-manufactured building components off-site in a controlled factory environment. This means that many aspects of the construction process, such as material procurement, manufacturing, and quality control, can be completed simultaneously, resulting in a shorter overall construction time of around 6-8 weeks.

    For schools, we recommend allowing this time when planning around school holidays.

    What types of modular school buildings can be constructed?

    Modular school buildings can be designed to meet a variety of needs. Common types of modular school buildings are classrooms, laboratories, IT departments, changing rooms, sports halls, meeting rooms, chapels, storerooms, receptions, offices, staff rooms, workshops, and more.

    Are modular school buildings suitable for temporary use?

    Modular school buildings are suitable for temporary use, such as when repair work is being done to an existing building or when a new brick building is under construction. They can be quickly installed on-site and customised to meet specific requirements. The buildings are flexible, cost-effective, and easily disassembled and relocated.
