Portakabin Provide a High Quality, Temporary School Building for Clifton Hall School in Edinburgh

Organisation : Clifton Hall School

Application : Education Buildings

Product : Ultima Vision

Location : Newbridge, Edinburgh

Requirement :

Clifton Hall School is a fully independent Nursery, Primary and Secondary school, accommodating 300 pupils between the ages of three and eighteen. The school’s focus is on small classes and a wide range of activities and opportunities for pupils. As part of its long-term development plan the school converted its assembly room in the main building into two new state-of-the-art science teaching labs. This created a short-term need for a building that could be used for three years as an assembly hall, as well as an area for indoor sports and school performances.

Solution :

The Edinburgh-based Portakabin team developed a solution that would create a bright, high-quality building to meet the school's needs and could be installed in a matter of weeks. The team at Portakabin worked closely with the school's needs and could be installed in a matter of weeks. The team at Portakabin worked closely with the school so that within two weeks of completion of ground works, a 182m2 single storey building, made up of five Ultima Vision modules, was installed on site and ready for use.    

Ultima Vision incorporates floor to ceiling double glazed wall panelling to maximise the amount of natural light inside the building. Solar glass is standard, providing a 40% improvement in shading coefficient compared to clear glass to prevent solar overheating. There are no internal columns, creating a bright, flexible interior space. The building also incorporates male, female and disabled toilet facilities.

The Bursar at Clifton Hall School says: “We are really pleased with the building and the glass frontage gives it a really modern and bright look. It meets all of our current needs in terms of practical use as an assembly, performance and recreation area. The team at Portakabin worked closely with us to ensure that they fully understood our needs and they delivered the project on time and within the original budget. We now have a flexible, functional, quality building that is in daily use by staff and pupils."
