Modular Nursery Building For Pre School Pupils
Peakirk Cum Glinton Primary required a stimulating environment for children of all ages, set in an additional nursery building – they chose a modular nursery building. This modular nursery now supports parents in this rural Cambridgeshire village by offering a pre-school and after-school club.
The appearance needed to complement the local area and the existing school buildings, so we worked with local architects from the design stage.
A Sympathetically Designed Pre School Modular Building
Using modular building methods, we took advantage of a range of materials to suit the project. And to meet planning regulations, the exterior of the building was clad in locally sourced limestone. Also, we designed the brickwork to match the existing school buildings, and timber was used for the facias and decking areas to soften the appearance. Furthermore, we finished the decking with an anti-slip coating that links the internal and external spaces beautifully.
We designed the interior of the modular nursery building to suit its function – to be a stimulating learning environment. For instance, large aluminium-framed windows and doors allow for plenty of natural light, and we used bright colours throughout. Finished with different coloured vinyl and carpets, this separated the various play zones; the building has the main activity area and a wet play area and kitchen.
We selected all of the materials for safety and durability, perfect for pre-school children.
A Pre School Extension Delivered During School Holidays
As with many modular construction projects, timescales were critical to Peakirk Cum Glinton Primary School. Therefore we completed the majority of the work off-site in advance. This allowed us to install the new modular nursery building during the 6-week summer holidays. Something ideal for many schools as the health and safety risks, and disruptions to teaching, is kept to a minimum.
When the children returned to school in September, they had a state-of-the-art pre-school building to be proud of.
To ensure the highest-quality workmanship and industry-approved health and safety standards, we have MPBA and CHAS accreditation. Please find out more about the work we have done with other schools and nurseries here.
