What are Modular Nurseries?
Providing a safe, comfortable and child-friendly environment for young children, a modular nursery building is a fabulous setting for early learning – and as they’re able to be installed quickly, allow a nursery to use the space sooner than a traditional build.
Modular nursery buildings are designed specifically for younger children and can be equipped with age-appropriate facilities, restrooms, kitchens and administrative spaces as well as colourful and engaging interiors and exteriors depending on the needs of the nursery. Meeting all building codes and health and safety regulations, our modular nursery buildings ensure the care and well-being of the children. Assembled offsite and then transported to the site and installed, they can be fully operational in the shortest time to create temporary or permanent solutions which provide a nurturing and caring environment for young children to play and learn.
Planning Applications and Building Regulations
With years of experience in the industry, we know all the regulations and legalities and can guide you through the process of planning applications and building regulations, or we can manage the whole procedure for you with our complete turnkey service.
With a wide range of cladding options to choose from, you can select an aesthetically pleasing option to help your portable classroom look as if it’s always been there. With different timber options at various price points, brick slip cladding – to match your traditional main building – or Clad-ex for a new portable building, our cladding options keep your building energy-efficient.
Cabin Transport and Relocation
All of our modular buildings are manufactured offsite and then transported and installed on your site with the shortest possible lead time. As our modular buildings are portable, they can also be relocated and reassembled if needed – meeting the evolving needs of the educational establishment.
If you already have a portable modular building that is starting to look a bit tired, then we’re also skilled at refurbishing. If you are constrained by a budget, then you could also consider one of our refurbished buildings which is much less expensive than a new modular building.
All of the foundation preparation, installation of mains services, ducting and drainage will be taken care of by our skilled engineers, giving you peace of mind that it will be professionally installed and fully compliant.
What are the Benefits of Modular Nursery Buildings
There is a wide range of benefits to choosing a modular nursery building which includes the speed of installation, sustainability and energy efficiency as well as the flexibility to modify them internally and externally and move them if necessary to adapt to your changing requirements.
Customisable Learning Spaces
Modular nursery buildings can be customised to suit the exact needs of the nursery and the children using them. Flexible layouts, areas for group activities and focused tasks as well as wet play areas and toilet facilities – whatever you require we can customise it.
Providing Stimulating Sensory Environments
We consider the important factors that are important to healthy child development and stimulation in terms of lighting, seating and colour as well as being a welcoming-looking building. Sensory environments and non-slip flooring for wet play all create a well-rounded learning environment.
Quick and Easy to Construct
With the majority of the construction completed offsite, the total installation time is about 70% quicker than a new, traditionally-built nursery building – meaning less disruption to your services, as the whole process can be undertaken during a holiday period.
Environmentally Friendly Alternative
Our modular nursery buildings are more sustainable as they are constructed with sustainable materials and processes and will generally use less energy to heat and service than a traditional building – making your nursery eco-friendlier.
Step 01 – Design Phase
In collaboration with you and your needs, we create a design proposal and quotation. If you’re happy with these, then we visit your site to check for any access constraints.
Step 02 – Planning and Compliance
We can provide a service to apply for your planning permission, or you can make the application yourself. A building regulation application will need to be applied for after the planning application has been approved – often 8 – 12 weeks.
Step 03 – Groundworks and Manufacturing
While the building is being manufactured offsite, the groundworks are being prepared onsite – including mains services, ducting and drainage. The running of both processes in tandem is very time efficient.
Step 04 – Installation
The building is delivered to your site, with all the necessary equipment and engineers needed for a quick installation. All interior and exterior fittings are completed – ready for delivery to you.
Step 05 – Snagging and Handover
The snagging checks and tasks are completed to your satisfaction, and then the building certificates and keys are handed over and your modular nursery building is good to go.
Modular Nursery Buildings FAQs
What are modular nursery buildings?
Modular nursery buildings are prefabricated structures specifically designed to be utilised as nurseries or childcare centres. Their prefabricated nature means modular nursery buildings will be constructed off-site in a controlled environment and then assembled on-site. They’re much more efficient to build, helping to reduce costs compared to traditional construction methods. Modular nursery buildings for sale also have the advantage of easy expansion, with additional modules added if the need arises, all in a much simpler and shorter time frame than brick and mortar builds.
What are the different types of modular nursery buildings?
We install modular nursery classroom buildings in a variety of different sizes and new or refurbished options. We also hire modular nursery buildings if you require the use of one for a short-term reason, and don’t need a permanent installation. There are a range of claddings and modifications available to make the modular nursery building bespoke to your unique requirements.
How much does a modular nursery cost?
The cost of a modular nursery will depend on the size and modifications you require. If you require additional facilities the cost will be impacted. For an exact, free, no-obligation quote, get in touch with an expert and friendly member of our team or check out our range of nursery buildings for sale.
How long does it take to build a modular nursery building?
The length of time that a modular nursery building takes will depend on the location, size and modifications of the building, but any modular building will take a fraction of the time that a new, traditionally built construction would take. Most modular nursery buildings take a few weeks to install and between 8 – 12 weeks to construct offsite.
What customisation options are available for modular nursery buildings?
The size, layout and features of modular nursery buildings are almost endless. Their modular design allows for excellent flexibility, as new sections can be added, or existing ones removed depending on specific requirements and growing users. You can have very customisable learning spaces to suit the exact needs of the children using them and create a bespoke learning environment that is stimulating and environmentally friendly.
Are modular nursery buildings compliant with safety and building codes?
Absolutely. All of Midlands Portable Buildings’ nursery buildings for sale comply with all safety and building codes. The compliance process ensures these modular structures are safe for children and staff, and adhere to local, national and regional regulations, including the Equality Act 2010 and quality standards ISO 9001 just to name a few. Depending on the size and location of your modular nursery building, planning permission may be required, and our team can organise all applications on your behalf. Our nursery buildings comply with all building regulations in the UK, including structural integrity, fire safety, accessibility, ventilation and energy efficiency.
What is the lifespan of a modular nursery building?
A well-designed and properly maintained modular nursery building can last for 20 years or more. Some factors may change this such as the location of the modular nursery, as harsh weather conditions can influence the structural integrity. Heavy foot traffic, which is common in nursery buildings, can also bring more wear and tear to the modular building.
Can modular nursery buildings be expanded or reconfigured in the future?
One of the greatest advantages of modular nursery buildings is that they can be expanded and reconfigured in the future. If you have growing numbers of children using your building, additional sections can be designed, constructed off-site and assembled at the existing location with great efficiency. Designs can be reconfigured with ease thanks to the modular design of the buildings.
How do modular nursery buildings address environmental sustainability?
Apart from how modular construction and design are much more environmentally friendly compared to traditional buildings, modular nursery buildings for sale can feature ample eco-friendly and sustainable utilities and items. Low-energy lighting, recyclable materials and reduced waste all factor into a reduced carbon footprint for establishments looking for additional space.
What maintenance is required for modular nursery buildings?
It is important to maintain certain aspects of a modular nursery building to help extend its lifespan. Maintenance such as regular exterior cleaning, roof inspections, gutter maintenance, assessing your electrical systems and HVAC units, ensuring all accessibility features remain useable, as well as documenting all maintenance carried out. Maintenance of a modular nursery building is similar to traditional brick and mortar builds, and for more information on the best maintenance practices, get in touch with our team.
How do the costs of modular nursery buildings compare to traditional construction?
While modular nursery buildings can have competitive costs, possible reductions and long-term expenses vary depending on a number of factors. There are benefits to modular buildings, including energy efficiency, speed and less disturbance on the job site. On the other hand, well-maintained buildings with conventional structures may have a better resale value. The nursery’s particular demands and priorities, along with its budget, schedule and long-term objectives, should be taken into account while deciding between modular and traditional construction. It’s best to collaborate with knowledgeable experts to perform a cost analysis based on your particular requirements. For a free quote on a modular nursery building, contact us today.
