80-place nursery in just three months

Organisation : Lynburn Primary School

Application : Education

Product : Ultima

Location : Dunfermline

Requirement :

Council chooses fast, safe, permanent modular building system to create 80-place nursery in just three months.

The Scottish Government is doubling nursery hours between 2018 and 2020, so there is a country-wide requirement for more nursery buildings. Fife Council was exploring ways to build high-quality new nurseries and, after detailed scrutiny of different construction methods, selected a Portakabin solution.

Solution :
Portakabin worked with the council to create a building that fulfilled all of the school’s requirements. The new
building features a dedicated room for younger children, with toilets and a nappy-changing room. There are two spacious areas for three-to-four year olds, each with a capacity of 40 children. There is a spacious servery and dining area, as well as a separate family room, kitchen, staff facilities and dedicated learning space for an additional 25 children with facilities.

The 558m2 building has 3.2m-high ceilings throughout, giving it a spacious, airy feel. It is connected to the existing school via a link structure built using a timber kit. Portakabin provided a complete turn-key service, from helping Fife Council attain planning permission and Building Warrant approvals, through to installing all foundations and constructing and fitting out the building. Portakabin even installed a CCTV security access system, outdoor fencing, a soft-pour play area and a new tarmac playground.

Fife Council handed the site over to Portakabin in May, and the building was completed just three
months later – in time for the start of the new academic year.
