Modular buildings for the education sector are a popular choice for all levels of learning, from nurseries and primary schools to secondary schools, colleges and universities – due to their cost and time-saving benefits.
Adapting modular buildings for education
Thanks to their flexibility, low cost and quick installation, modular buildings can be used to fulfil a variety of needs in the education sector, and are often used as classrooms, laboratories, libraries, administrative buildings, sports facilities and dining halls.
Rooflights are one of the most common additions to modular buildings for education. Making the most of natural light can help reduce energy costs for the school, and studies have shown that natural light can improve students’ health, concentration and test scores.
As well as natural light, rooflights can also be used to provide natural ventilation, further contributing to a positive indoor environment.
Adapting a modular building for a specific purpose typically requires building penetrations in the roof or walls. These can include:
- HVAC systems
- Cable trays
- Service risers
Ensuring the penetrations are structurally sound and fully weatherproofed is critical – and our speciality.
Installation: onsite or offsite
As experts in vertical and roof penetrations, the team at Jones and Woolman UK can quickly and effectively install and weatherproof modular building solutions.
Work can be carried out onsite on existing buildings. We can also do the installations offsite at your premises of manufacturing. We are the only building penetration specialist to offer this type of service, helping to reduce build time and disruption at the school premises.
With more than 40 years of experience in building penetrations and weathering systems, Jones and Woolman UK has worked on a number of modular buildings for education, and our systems are suitable for use on all types of modular buildings within all sector types. All of our work is covered by our 25-year warranty for peace of mind.
