Sector: Education Off-Site Modular Buildings

The education modular buildings market

The education modular buildings market has matured considerably over the decades with consecutive government building initiatives. As we enter into the latest PSPB programme, never before have we seen such a shortfall in classroom spaces. The Egan report initiated the latest round of modern thinking about how to provide additional space quickly and cost effectively. The answer was simple: standardisation.

Adaptable, flexible and agile education space, which can be configured in many unique ways, yet use the same parts (just like LEGO), started the “kit of parts revolution”. The off-site market adopted this philosophy many years ago, with factories producing volumetric modules and modular classrooms.

When these ideas are combined with repetitive manufacturing techniques using the same components purchased in bulk, you develop a high quality, cost effective, fast build solution to most accommodation requirements. The individuality of each scheme is arrived at by the clever way we arrange each module, and enhanced by collaboratively working with professionals such as architects, designers and government bodies.

Servaccomm champions this innovative approach to construction. Our main differentiator is our people and our approach to clients. It’s that simple!

This benefits you by creating savings in money and time through simplified procurement and peace of mind that our buildings have been pre-assessed for quality, value and assurance that your building will comply with all Government EU procurement and regulatory guidelines.

Why choose modular buildings?

Quicker than traditional construction

Your project will be finished in half the time because modular buildings are quicker to build, lightweight and often needs much simpler foundations. If you’re on a tight deadline or need buildings completed over the school holidays, then the modular method of construction is ideal.

You work with people who have over 20 years' experience in designing and building schools and colleges across the UK. Working with Servaccomm you have the peace of mind to know your project will be finished on time and within budget.

Adaptable and flexible

Our flexible kit-of-parts design means you can easily expand or decrease your building space by adding or taking away classrooms, whole floors or reconfigure layouts to accommodate changing class sizes, resulting in a flexible and agile space for your needs now and in the future.

Up to 60% more energy efficient

We comply with the ISO 14001 environmental standard, assuring you and other external stakeholders that we constantly measure and improve our environmental impact. You benefit by a reduction of waste and operating costs as well as achieving higher conformance with legislative and regulatory requirements for your building.

Less waste on site compared to traditional construction

Modular building systems dramatically reduces waste on site as a consequence of pre-assembled components built in a controlled factory environment. 

Less site disruption for students and staff

Our modular method is proven to result in significantly less disruption onsite due to 85% less traffic movements than traditional construction.  As a consequence there is a considerable reduction in health and safety risk. 

A range of first class design choices

You can choose from a range of claddings and external finishes to make your new building stand out or complement existing buildings on site.

Superior quality

We are accredited to the ISO 9001 quality standard. We’re governed by the industry’s regulating bodies following strict safety and quality standards. Servaccomm pro-actively operates a continuous improvement programme to improve quality at all levels of the process.  

Our approach

Servaccomm work in partnership with key stakeholders to a seamless integrated plan, from collaborative design and groundworks, through to delivery, installation and handover. As the industry experts in off-site construction we have the expertise and experience to manage all aspects of your project allowing you complete piece of mind that your building will be delivered on time and on budget.

The consultation period is key to understanding your requirements, resulting in a living building and stimulating learning space that works for you. We achieve this through team work, communication and a true partnership approach from day one.

We liaise and collaborate with all relevant professional bodies throughout the process such as surveyors, structural engineers, contractors and architects to reach the right solution for your permanent education building, meeting all the relevant building standards and regulations.
