It’s great to see that the finishing touches are now in place for the second of the classrooms that we have created for Nottingham County Council this year.
Costock Primary School desperately needed more room for its expanding community. Danzer was commissioned by the local authority to build a brand new modular classroom, creating a bright modern learning space for the children and teachers alike.
The building was constructed by our team at Langley Mill during the summer months and was delivered and installed by us in good time for the start of the September term.
As you can see from the pictures the children now have a fantastic, bright and cheery space in which to study. We included standard and disabled toilets, an all-important storeroom and a kitchen/staff room in which the adults can relax.
An entrance lobby was also designed in so that the children have somewhere for their boots, coats and bags which keeps the clutter out of the classrooms.
Other finishing touches included external insulated render, insulated walls, floor and roof, double glazed windows and doors and two remote controlled roof lights.
These extra energy saving additions have helped to secure an A grade energy performance rating for the building.
Our installation team carried out all of the necessary ground works including laying the foundations with reinforced concrete beams to counter the especially heavy clay soil.
The overall building height is 4m which required us to transport the units on articulated low loaders. As access on site was also tight, they were then transferred on to a rigid vehicle which travelled across a trackway which was put in place to protect the school grass. They were then lifted into their final position and commissioned for use with all services being fully connected.
Judging by the photographs the children and teachers are both making the most of this fantastic new educational space!
