Requirement :

With pupil numbers rising, only Portakabin Allspace could deliver a self-contained 80m2 classroom block ready for new term

Facing an increase in pupil numbers, Scoil Bhride Mionloch (Menlo National School) needed to provide an extra classroom to house a class of 11 to 13 year-old children. With no budget or time to build a new permanent classroom block, the school decided to hire a high-quality modular classroom for the foreseeable future.

Solution :

School Principal Dara Mannion, says: "We wanted the very best standard of classroom accommodation and we put the work out to tender, setting out our very specific requirements. We were looking for a robust steel-framed building, providing an 80m2 classroom with adjoining toilets.

"The response from Portakabin Allspace fulfilled all of our criteria. I'd also experienced the quality of Portakabin buildings in the past and had been pleased with the service provided. For these reasons we chose Portakabin Allspace to provide our new classroom."

Portakabin Allspace created the 80m2 classroom using its premium-quality Ultima modular buildings. This building model offers exceptional levels of thermal efficiency, combined with a bright, welcoming, naturally ventilated interior.

The classroom building designed for Scoil Bhride Mionloch incorporates a separate washroom featuring two toilets, including one providing wheelchair access. The classroom itself is fitted with a sink and features four large windows, fitted the interior with natural light.

As well as demanding the very highest standard of accommodation, the school was keen to choose a building that could be extended with an additional storey in future. Portakabin Allspace was able to assure the school that further modules could be installed above the existing building with no need for structural alterations. That gave the school the flexibility for hassle-free future expansion it was looking for.

The modules were delivered and assembled during the summer holiday, and fitted out ready for the start of the new term.
