At AVDanzer we continue to help build classrooms for the future and are delighted to have delivered two superb new facilities for schools in Nottinghamshire via Nottingham County Council.
Radcliffe-on-Trent Infant School was looking for more space and so we built and delivered a 9 module unit to create a 9.4m x 25m classroom which will now be used by 90 nursery aged children.
GF Tomlinson carried out all of the ground works and we installed the building for them in just one day. It is an open plan facility which provides a stand-alone teaching space including a large open plan classroom, reception area, 3 sets of infant toilets at each end, kitchen, store room and disabled facilities too.
To achieve the highest level of energy efficiency we also specified a monopitch roof with Kingspan roof panels and Armourplan membrane outersheet. We used Kawneer windows and doors which feature a unique thermal break system for added efficiency.
The building also features 3 electrically opening, double-glazed roof lights to ensure maximum natural daylight and external walls were finished with acrylic render and insulation boards.
Not content with simply building new classrooms we have also helped to relocated an existing temporary classroom to Radcliffe Infants. Four years ago we delivered a temporary modular building to the Heymann Primary School in West Bridgford which they used as an extra teaching facility. However, this facility became surplus to requirements when the school undertook a £7m build programme. The 6 module building which provides an additional 2 classrooms was delivered to Radcliff Infants and we located it on an area of land adjacent to the main school site. This was then totally refurbished and internal alterations were made to suit its new use.
At Lantern Lane Primary School in Loughborough we delivered an even bigger building which comprises 17 modules to create over 361 m2 of space.
The building includes 4 classrooms, circulation space, toilet facilities, plant room, offices, kitchen corridors and reception area.
Together the buildings represent an investment £900,000 by Nottingham County Council as part of its basic needs classroom programme.
