Here's how to install a modular building. See a day in the life of our installations team, how we installed a new multi-use modular classroom at a school in Peterborough.
We completed a two storey classroom block for a special educational needs school in Lincolnshire. Read all about the design and specification of this project.
MPH have recently completed a 2 storey modular extension. With a school growing in capacity, a larger dining hall was required to cater for increased pupil numbers at meal times. In addition the extra space is planned to provide flexibility and additional teaching facilities. Original plans were for a single storey traditional built hall extension [...]
MPH Building Systems have recently completed the extension and refurbishment of an existing modular classroom. The school was growing from a one-form to a two-form entry school and one effective way of gaining additional classroom space was remodelling and extending the existing modular classroom. MPH Building Systems demonstrated the flexibility of modular buildings and that [...]
MPH Building Systems have recently completed another bespoke education building. The bespoke design included exterior cedar cladding and an insulated thermal cladding system to give the building a more traditional appearance. Architects are increasingly specifying timber as a preferred cladding system due to its durability and sustainability as a building product. The internal [...]
As part of MPH’s ongoing Research and Development, we have installed our first green roof on a recently completed education project. Green roofs, often referred to as sedum roofs, can be tailored to meet project specific planning conditions and offer many environmental benefits. Requiring minimal maintenance, green roof technology serves as a sustainable urban drainage [...]
MPH have just completed the supply, delivery and installation of a new pre-school. The full turnkey package also included site management, portable roads to create segregated access, foundations, site services, below ground drainage and landscaping. The modular facility included a covered external decked play area, internal play areas, wet activity space, office space and toilets. [...]
A construction project in Norway using prefabricated modular buildings caught our eye – and gave us an idea for our next holiday destination! The new adventure and exploration resort by architect Snorre Stinessen on Manshausen Island off the coast of Northern Norway features prefabricated portable cabins, cantilevered over the coastline. Offsite modular [...]
New Modular Building formal opening by HRH Princess Anne at Browning House Jubilee Centre As the Queen presided over the State Opening of Parliament today, we reflect on a royal occasion in the MPH calendar as we recently attended the formal opening of our new modular buildings by HRH Princess Anne at the Browning House [...]
Air permeability tests are designed to measure the integrity of a modular building from an air tightness perspective using pressure differentiation techniques. Air leakage typically occurs through gaps and holes in the building fabric and this uncontrolled ventilation affects the building in various ways. By reducing air leakage, buildings can be heated more efficiently to [...]
