SCHOOL CASE STUDIES
Educational establishments are facing new challenges on many fronts – not least the need to increase student numbers with reduced building budgets. Both resources and space are increasingly coming under pressure.
Schools are having to find more cost effective solutions to replacing/extending existing buildings or erecting new facilities. Timberworks Europe can provide solutions to at least some of these problems and are doing so for a number of educational establishments. We supply bespoke, high quality, affordable timber buildings individually designed to meet a wide range of needs andapplications.
IN ESSENCE OUR BUILDINGS ARE...
Very affordable – roughly 65% of the cost of comparable conventional buildings.
Ecologically sound – Where better place to start informing children the importance of responsible building practices than in the classroom. All our timber is from certified sustainable sources and finishes include wood fibre insulation and paper breather membranes.
Erected quickly – The majority of the building is prefabricated off site which minimises time and inconvenience on site – this suits holiday time builds. Typically an 80-100m2 building can be completed in 1 month, although this will vary with specification and location.
Built to order - we provide versatile, individually designed flexible accommodation to meet specific requirements and use. Our buildings can be clad in timber, brick or render to suit you and the planners.
User friendly – Wood is perfectly suited to the requirements of educational establishments. It is aesthetically appealing, thermally efficient, durable and sustainable.
Acoustic qualities - Wood has excellent soft acoustic qualities (sound absorbent) and provides the ambience and levels of calm so important to educational space.
We take these qualities to design and build modern 21st Century buildings full of all the light, space and calm that is so vital to a successful learning environment. If you are in the process of adding space, replacing buildings or even if it is just a thought at this stage then we would be delighted to be involved.
