We can offer specialist decant facilities, whereby a whole school can be transferred to temporary modular accommodation whilst existing facilities are being refurbished, or a new school constructed. Facilities can be provided to lease or buy in either single or multi storey formats.
With Elliott’s unrivalled experience in re-locatable modular buildings, we have provided solutions for almost every scenario in the education sector and have thousands of students learning in our decant facilities every year.
What our clients have to say
“Elliott was able to provide us with a readymade, cost effective decant solution that meant we avoided any disruption to the school timetable when we temporarily moved out of the main school building.” Thorns Community College
During the school holidays, an inspection of Thorns Community College in Brierley Hill was made by Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council. It was found that due to shifting foundations the annexe building was considered unsafe and eleven classrooms were immediately condemned. This left the council with no other alternative but to source temporary accommodation and contacted Elliott.
Our installation team were on site twelve hours a day, seven days a week to ensure the agreed three week schedule was completed on time and within budget.
- Speed of construction
Modular construction means the building can be completed quickly and more efficiently, which means less disruption to existing school timetables. The off-site nature of our education solutions means that in many cases the work on site can be completed outside of term time.
- Value for money
The standardised nature of our modular solutions allows schools to achieve better value for money by saving time during the design, manufacture and construction phases.
- Quality of build
We can guarantee quality levels because many of the elements are produced in an ISO9001 factory controlled environment. Choosing a modular system means that it can be specified fully compliant with current Building Regulations and the DFES Building Bulletins.
All our materials are chosen to provide the highest levels of durability, creating schools that offer a long term low maintenance solution
Our modular solutions are able to achieve the higher levels of BREEAM, the UK’s leading environmental assessment method and rating system for buildings. Modular construction also reduces both journeys to site and the amount of waste created compared to conventional build.
Elliott solutions are designed to last for in excess of 50 years which is verified by external structural engineering consultants.
The Elliott 25 years structural warranty gives you the reassurance that your building was not only designed and manufactured to the highest standards but will also provide structural integrity and peace of mind for many years.
