Offsite construction specialist Premier Modular has successfully installed modular teaching facilities at Douay Martyrs Catholic Secondary School in Ickenham.
The temporary classrooms, science laboratories, and SEN spaces have been sited on top of a permanent modular building while that building was under construction.
The school, which has more than 1,500 students, is undergoing a comprehensive refurbishment, part of which includes a new single storey modular annex.
Premier won the contract to supply temporary accommodation, under a rental arrangement, to keep the school operational while the main school building is being refurbished.
Limited space on site meant that the best location for the decant accommodation was on top of the new modular extension.
David Williams, project manager for main contractor Morgan Sindall Construction, said: “This was a challenging project but Premier engaged in the design development and at every stage of the scheme. This meant that despite its complexities, the project went very smoothly.
“A lot of openness and collaboration was required between the two building suppliers, which they managed very well.”
Premier Modular was established in 1956 and employs more than 300 staff at its head office and offsite manufacturing centre in Brandesburton, East Yorkshire.
