Wates Construction were employed by the Local Authority and the Department for Education to provide a new build Primary School to be known as The Grove Academy. In order to phase the build, they needed to decant a Pre School and re-house them in a temporary modular nursery classroom for the duration of the build.
Wates contacted SiBCAS who surveyed the site and produced an initial design for the building. SiBCAS consulted directly with the nursery to ensure they provided exactly the specification required.
Working together with Wates, SiBCAS provided the modular building comprising of classrooms, offices, stores, WC’s, breakout areas and SEN facilities along with creating a safe and secure soft fall play area.
Size: 19nr 32’ sections and 16nr PermaDeck sections, GIA 532m2 & 448m2 of decking
Timescale: 4 weeks on site from install to handover

SiBCAS were required to operate as a subcontractor before the main site was established and therefore needed to route vehicles through live school sites and other commercial business. As well as this, the shorter days and potential inclement weather could have caused potential delays but as always, SiBCAS took a meticulous approach to the overall project management and ensured the correct labour levels were attributed. This allowed for a successful on time and on budget handover.
The project was completed within the given timescale and both the client and end user were incredibly happy with the modular building. More importantly the children were able to continue their education
“When we have visitors from the local authority, other schools and professionals in they have all commented how lovely the building is and how fantastic it is. So, from all the staff and children here – THANK YOU we all love it”
