Double height modular space from Portakabin
  • CALL: 01904681719

The UK's first ever school building constructed entirely offsite using a modular structure

Organisation : Culverstone Green Primary School

Application : Education

Location : Gravesend, Kent

Requirement :

The Multi-Purpose Hall at Culverstone Green Primary School was designed to standards set out by the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA), offering the UK’s first ever school building constructed entirely offsite using a modular structure. Many schools constructed offsite have a Multi-Purpose Hall built traditionally, which often slows down the programme.

Portakabin specialises in delivering innovative space quickly, with no compromise on quality.

Solution :

Nick Griffin at Portakabin comments: “We are always looking at ways to transform our products, provide innovative solutions and engineer better buildings. This double height modular space shows how we are continuing to challenge traditional perceptions of volumetric modular construction and drive our capability forward.”

As the hall has a factory finished concrete floor as standard, customers can start work on it right away in terms of fitting any site M&E at high-level, internal fit out (furniture such as climbing frames, basketball hoops) and applying the floor finish, saving huge amounts of time on site.

“Our new school building has been transformative: moving from our treasured yet small old building into a large, light airy space has been a wonderful experience.

“We have larger and more pleasant spaces to work in; we can move around the building with ease, there are more learning areas for small focus groups to use and the hall ensures that the children can enjoy PE with plenty of room to move around. We have already hosted two sporting events and parents and guests have had opportunities to visit and see for themselves this excellent new facility.”

Ruth Doughty, Head Teacher, Culverstone Green Primary School
