“The building that was supplied and erected by Modulek was going to be a short term measure for classroom space, the building and your after sales is so good we are at this moment seeking planning to keep the building on a permanent basis, the staff using the class rooms do not want to go back into their old rooms which I might point out are brand new classrooms”
Modulek completed a bespoke two-storey modular school building for the Jewell Academy School in Bournemouth. The new extension building provides the school with an additional 14 classrooms, a hall suitable for PE and drama, several group rooms, a library and administration area.
The new building is twice the size of the existing school buildings, enabling the school to grow.
Designed and finished to a very high standard, externally the building is a mixture of render brickwork and timber cladding giving the building all the appearance of a traditionally constructed extension.
Internally the finishes defy the modular logic with fully plastered walls, suspended ceiling, and cement board flooring ensuring the construction provides all the feel and appearance of a traditional building. External works included playgrounds, MUGA courts and a staff car park.
