Knole Academy Up & Running

Knole Academy were looking for an additional building to house their school children/teachers whilst a redevelopment of 2 other buildings were taking place.

 

A local architect, tasked with fulfilling their specification contacted several companies. MPB were successful partly due to the price but also due to the availability and flexibility of the product.

 

The solution offered was a 2 storey modular building, which fitted perfectly into the dimensions of the site encompassing classrooms, offices & washroom facilities. The option was taken to hire the unit over a 3 year period.

 

Challenges around the timescale were ubiquitous as our access to site was only available during the school holidays. We delivered a full turnkey package including groundworks and bringing new services to the site which was completed within 2 weeks. Shortly afterwards, the 2 storey unit was delivered. The whole project was completed within 6 weeks on time and on budget. This solution also has a very energy efficient angle as the building used was recycled.

The high specifications, designs, flexibility and durability now available with modular buildings is often not fully appreciated by our Clients. Knole Academy's expectations were met, if not exceeded in relation to the final product and excellent feedback was gained in relation to the final fixtures, fittings and overall quality and presentation of the temporary unit.

This project was a one off requirement however, since completion, we have received a referral from another school close to Knole Academy and continue to have open communications with the Architect relating to future opportunities.
