Following a kitchen fire at Scotstoun Primary School in the main building, SiBCAS were appointed by Gap Group to provide alternative temporary modular accommodation in short order.
The amenity was designed to be dual purpose offering an indoor recreational space and an easy to manage canteen. The modular building was appointed with a commercial kitchen, sanitary facilities, male and female changing areas, accessible W/C and adequate office space to run a busy kitchen.
Size: 100’ x 32’ single storey PermaSpace
The primary use of the modular building was as a refectory complete with a commercial kitchen and serving facilities capable of accommodating some 200 children.
The main dining space had to be dual purpose and double as an activity space for indoor games, assembly as well as the canteen. To this end large store rooms were formed within the dining hall of the modular building, to allow safe storage of the canteen furniture when not in use.
In common with most PermaSpace modular buildings, the design and use of space had to be optimised. Minimising circulation space and maximising useable space is crucial to this end.
The programme was incredibly tight and careful co-ordination of the subcontractor was necessary to ensure deadlines met.
The delivery and installation of the modular building was conducted without incidents and was delivered on time and on budget to a delighted Head Mistress.
