Primary Education

Within the classroom, playground and the wider community, primary schools play a unique role in supporting children as they take their first steps on the road to learning and growing. We fully involve end users to ensure their design and functionality needs are met.

Modular units

In the last five years we have delivered modular construction totalling £115m, including at Castle Hill Primary School for Hampshire County Council where we constructed a new two storey 210 place primary school. Working together with our 100% owned subsidiary, Innovaré Solutions Ltd, we incorporated their Structural Insulated Panels (i-SIPs) into the design.

The i-SIPs are an offsite solution that enable a watertight structure to be achieved more quickly than traditional methods. This resulted in overall cost savings, a quicker build programme and enabled flexibility and versatility of building design. When compared to a traditional steel frame solution i-SIPs presented a 17% cost saving as well as a programme advantage.
