Permanent and unique education buildings

Give your school the space it needs, quickly.

Gone are the days of temporary buildings and mobiles, long build times and complicated building processes to provide educational teaching spaces. Modular works offers a permanent long term solution that is quick to supply and build with a combination of off-site and on-site construction. A vast range of bespoke finishes both externally and internally are provided so your building can be tailored around your own schools requirements.

Our modular building system is based around our own unique galvanised steel frame core.. It is built to last, having a life span in excess of 100 years. This is in excess of the life span of traditional housing developers.

Value for money

Compared to traditional building methods, our spaces are up to 25% lower per square metre to construct and all of our solutions are turnkey avoiding multi-disciplined sub-contractors on site and the management of them. The price you pay includes all services, fixtures, fittings and equipment. When it’s finished your building is ready to use. We can even fit the building out with furniture and provide CCTV and alarm systems. This unique steel framed building solution means you could increase your school space rapidly from as little as four weeks from order. The result is reduced time on site, less disruption to school activities and a cost effective and efficient building project with lower overall associated costs.
