Case study for Framingham High School – Norfolk.
The school had a requirement for a specialist nurture centre and student well being centre. working closely alongside the school, we designed a building that met all their needs and provided them with a fully inclusive price. The building had to fit into a tight space and was designed around the allocated area in both building design, layout and landscaping of the sensory garden.
Bespoke Rockpanel Chameleon frontage with oiled western red cedar contrasting facings, four specialist teaching rooms, one with adjustable partition wall. Reflection sensory garden, student well-being space with facilities for specialist external provision, SENDCO office and staff room, disabled WC and full disabled access to building, SALTO secure access on internal and external doors, kitchen and storage room.
A total of 220 SQM of custom building including landscaping works, furniture, fixtures and fittings. CCTV system and intruder alarm and fire system.
The project was delivered in just 10 weeks for a total of £336,000 which included all planning and specialist fees. this equated to a building cost of £1660 SQM turn key.

We are delighted with our beautiful new building. it offers us modern, light and flexible accommodation at an excellent cost. The speed and ease of the construction process was a real bonus and the whole process was supported by a very good working relationship with Modular WorksMs Nicola Furneaux - Headteacher
Construction methods and specifications
Certain elements of our standard designs can be modified, according to individual needs – for instance, providing grab rails, wider and easier access for wheelchair-users, or adjustable-height surfaces Carepods® give you the cost and convenience benefits of a high-spec modular system, with the opportunity to get exactly the right solution for your care needs
Carepods are pre-installed with electrical and communications cabling, ducting, pipework, drainage etc for all the necessary utilities – including air-conditioning, if required Customers have a choice of shower-room sanitary-ware, kitchen units and appliances, fitted bedroom wardrobes, flooring material, overall décor style and colour finishes What starts life as a standard pod, becomes a stylish, comfortable
All of the cladding options for Carepods are chosen for their fire-retardance properties as much as their aesthetic appearance, weather protection and thermal insulation performance The external finish can blend in with surrounding buildings or contrast with them, be from a range of traditional timbers or a contemporary-styled finish – the choice is yours
Carepods are designed as a modular system of interlocking units that are pre-fabricated in a controlled environment, then transported to site for assembly This avoids the risk of on-site delays and damage from rain and frost, which can occur with traditional on-site construction The modular route is flexible, fast, cost-effective and high-quality
Carepods are built with innovative, eco-friendly materials and components – like electric underfloor heating – that deliver energy efficiency, low running costs and comfortable living Wall, floor and roof sections utilise composite Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) for rigidity, strength and thermal efficiency All external windows and doors – including panoramic bi-folds, where specified – conform
Whether your ground is heavy clay, prone to water-logging, or on a slope, we can use the best foundation option to suit – without the need for the time-consuming, deep excavation that’s required for traditional brick buildings Carepods are relatively lightweight and can very often be mounted onto galvanised steel and concrete foundations that provide
