Often schools are limited on space; housed in old buildings that simply cannot cope with modern population demands or built in residential areas where space is at a premium. With limited budgets to boot, finding extra classroom or office space can be a real challenge.
‘Mobile’ classrooms, bring to mind ugly, cold and damp grey boxes, popular a few decades ago as a temporary space, but often used as a permanent solution. Their popularity was warranted – they were a great way to extend the space in a school without the need for a huge budget, planning permission or lengthy building works – they just weren’t very appealing!
These day’s however, that needn’t be the case. Building an external classroom, office, staffroom or even a library is still as easy, but it’s also aesthetically pleasing too!
Garden Spaces Commercial Buildings can be designed for a wide range of purposes, making them a flexible option that staff and pupils alike will want to use. For example, buildings can open up onto outdoor spaces making them ideal for science or art classes, they can be fitted out as an IT suite or even a cookery room – the options are endless.
What’s more, due to the bespoke design, practical needs can be taken into account too, such as plumbing, toilets, specific lighting, insulation, position of plug sockets and disabled access, ensuring the space entirely meets your needs.
