We can work with any existing Education Centres to achieve expansion by utilizing prefabricated building facilities to create new working spaces more economically and quicker than a traditional brick build.
Helping to project plan this extra expansion in a way that causes the least disruption to your educational and social activities by looking at existing areas within the Centres boundary’s i.e. playgrounds, carpark, quadrangles etc.

Improving the visual aesthetics of the buildings and the Centre as a whole by externally finishing the buildings with existing Livery colours and finishes, which also helps promote the kind of ambience that supports learning and mental development/stimulation.

Design your Project

As part of our planning process, our In-House CAD design allows our team to liaise and work closely with you to interpret your requirements. Our team goal is to understand your needs, anticipate your requirements & exceed your expectations.

What’s Involved

A key element in the initial design is consideration of what the function of the new space is. Other elements are:

  • Project Management – Assign Roles
  • Building Usage – Office, Canteen, Hot Desking, Classroom, Training.
  • Impact – On the environment, users & neighbours
  • Location – Footprint, Site Constraints, Services
  • Utilities – Water, Gas, Electric, Green Footprint
  • Regulations- Industrial/Sector requirements
  • Accessibility & Ergonomics – Ramps, Lifts, Steps/Flow, Function, Comfort
  • Appearance- Traditional, Contemporary/Steel, Cedar Clad, Brick Slip, Trespa
     

Complete package

We provide complete modular building service packages for clients looking to make their building from scratch. From single-story modular residences to multi-story commercial modular complexes, we will create something that fits your style and works just the way you want.

Clients looking for experts to handle just parts of the project or clients looking to revamp their existing modular structures to meet their current needs, can also count on Spacebuilder’s expertise and experience.

We can act as main contractors under full CDM regulations and take ideas from brief stage to physical structural completion, or liaise with clients to provide individual, standalone services where required.

Your Building

Dependent upon your exact requirements, you can have a single cabin or a multi storey modular building system, giving you the maximum versatility for your space & your team. Should these change over the course of its life, the space can be altered to suit your requirements.

Our Process

Working closely with you once the project price and design specification have been agreed, a work schedule is drawn up detailing the elements of construction and installation for our production team, giving you full transparency on the works.

Initial Discussion, Site Visit, Quotation & CAD design, Building Specification, Acceptance of Quote

Project/Site Work Timeline, Initial Groundworks/Foundations, Groundworks & Utilities Installation

As part of the project, a scheme for ground working would be put into place and agreed with you. This could involve the utility services being ducted for & installed by our own team, such as Electric; Water; IT; Foul Waste etc.

Mains connections can also be organised by Spacebuilder if needed. Once the building is completed on site, steps and ramps can be added and the surrounding area can be landscaped with turf, concrete, tarmacing/paving etc, as the project requires.

Foundations

Spacebuilder can design and install complete foundations i.e. concrete; steel; piling dependent upon site conditions, or simply supply pad loading information to you for your own sub-contractors to install.

Landscaping

Once your building has been installed, our ground working teams can build and install all the elements required to complete the whole look of your new space.

Turfing/Planting, Concrete, Tarmacing, Paving, Soft Play, Fencing- steel & wood

Climbing Frames, Canopies/Verandas

For schools, nurseries, and community areas, we have designed soft play areas fenced with either steel or wood to give full security with maximum utility. Have a look at our case studies for examples of what can be achieved with planting and decking.

Accessibility

Each aspect of your building will be accessed to ensure that accessibility for your staff and the public is compliance to Part M Building regulations, taking in the flow and usage of the area within and around the building.

Items such as:

  • Ramps, Lifts, DDA and Ambulant Toilet Facilities
  • DDA Shower / Toilet Pod - Extension pods to existing brick buildings
  • Interior corridor and lobby accessibility
     

We have full facilities to manufacture and install ramps and staircases to complete your project.

Installation

Variation in site levels or unforeseen ground issues can make it particularly difficult to install buildings. If the site has problems, we will always work with you and endeavour to find a suitable, cost-effective solution to keep the project on track and on budget.

With extensive knowledge & practical understanding of building logistics, our experienced team can plan and move any type of modular complex or single unit quickly and safely, with the least amount of disruption. We have our own Appointed Persons and Slinger/Signallers to help plan and manage a full site installation in conjunction with Crane/Hiab usage. Depending on the type of delivery, full site surveys can be carried out prior to any demounting or movement.

Building prepared off site, Building Installed/Onsite Works completed, Handover

The minute the civils and groundworks are finished, the individual units will be scheduled to be delivered and installed on site using crane or Hiab wagons.

To ensure that your building and project is completed to our high quality and exacting standards, our experienced on-site team attend site and finalise the onsite installation works as scheduled.

Testimonials

What do our customers say about us?

Worked with us for a bespoke solution

Spacebuilder worked with us to develop a bespoke solution to our shortage of classroom and storage space. They supported us in designing an affordable scheme and we developed a work programme with them to make the impact of the construction works as seamless as possible. I fully recommend Spacebuilder and would have no hesitation in working with them again.
David Abrahams-Edley - Project Manager, Middlesbrough College

The help and support we received from the team from design to installation was invaluable, particularly when making key decisions

I would just like to thank Spacebuilder for working with us to put our mobile classroom on site. The help and support we received from the team from design to installation was invaluable, particularly when making key decisions.

During installation, the project team were excellent, they communicated with us daily. The knowledge and experience of all the team made the installation run extremely smoothly. The quality and finish is excellent, as is the after-care support. I can highly recommend Spacebuilder if you are considering putting a mobile unit on site.
Sandy Jefferson – Bursar, JH Godwin Primary School

The School required a building to accommodate a Before and After School Club within the school grounds

Wellfield Infant & Nursery School were delighted to take ownership of there New Modular Building. The building is to be used as part of the Extended School Agenda and is already housing our Before & After School Clubs & holiday clubs, who themselves are thrilled at the first-class standard of the new accommodation. Spacebuilder project managed everything from planning and construction to handover including Health & Safety management, electrics, fire safety. disability access etc.

From the very first contact we made with Spacebuilder the service has been exceptionally good. Nothing was too much trouble and the company always had time to answer any of our queries
The delivery of the building was 'something else!

Because there was not adequate access from the Wellfield Infant site another solution had to be sought; and of course, it was, with the same integrity as the other aspects of the build. Gaining access from Wellfield Juniors, a track was laid across the field and the building components were brought in from there

I would therefore like to extend a huge thank you to Spacebuilder for the superb support they gave us every step of the way, and to anyone thinking of a similar project I can recommend Spacebuilder unreservedly....
Janice Irving - Head Teacher, Wellfield Infant & Nursery School
