Elliott is able to provide high quality design and build solutions, clearly focused on meeting permanent classroom requirements. Consistently delivering these projects on time and within budget is possible because we challenge the norm and find innovative ways of working and utilising modern methods of construction (MMC) to deliver permanent solutions.
At the heart of our permanent classroom offer is a commitment to focus on the needs of students and staff to create modern, user friendly learning centres.
What our clients have to say
“We had complete confidence that Elliott would be able to meet the strict timescales on this project. This was based on the company’s track record of completing three other school developments for Somerset County Council. The new building looks absolutely stunning and has created a real sense of pride with our students.”
Angela Bridgeland, Head teacher at Oake and Bradford school.
Designed around your needs
Our permanent classrooms can be designed with the full range of features, including:
- Sports hall

- Sports surfaces
- External landscaping
- WC facilities
- Storage spaces
- ICT Suites
The 600m² development at Oake and Bradford Community Primary School in Somerset provides modern teaching facilities for all 58 students. This is the fourth school project that we have successfully completed in quick succession for Somerset County Council.
The students had previously been taught in temporary classrooms, which was far from ideal and the approach of winter meant the school set strict timescales for completion of the new building. The development incorporated:
- Five classrooms
- Headmaster’s office
- Reception area
The school demonstrated its confidence in Elliott and our building solution – we had already successfully completed three other schools projects for Somerset County Council - by allowing demolition of the temporary classrooms at the outset of the programme.
Elliott acted as concept designer and Principle Contractor to complete the 26 week project four weeks ahead of schedule. The completed building achieved a BREEAM ‘Very good’ rating.
- 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
- 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. These efficiencies also mean you can occupy your new school sooner.
- 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.
- Design scope
The design capabilities of our solutions allow you to create buildings that inspire students, creating centres of learning that help them reach their full potential. Because we design, build and install our modular solutions we can ensure uncompromising attention to detail throughout, such as creating ITC enabled classrooms with intelligently installed cabling.
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 60 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.
