Case Study: Stanmore College - Middlesex
- Client - Stanmore College
- Project size - 285m²
- Completion - 12 weeks
- First floor extension & refurbishment of existing ground floor
- Office & Welfare Facility
- Plastisol & Timber Cladding
Stanmore College required an additional Administration facility for their Spruce Building and their existing single-storey construction was at full capacity. Expanding across the ground was not an option due to the limited space on site, therefore Module-AR Limited were awarded the contract to provide an 11 module single-storey structure to be installed on top of the existing modular building, creating a 2 storey structure to be used as Office accommodation.
The building was fitted with a large open-plan Office to accommodate the college's Administration staff, Kitchen facilities, WC's, a Plant room and various individual Offices for staff. The building features a DDA compliant lift, a combination of non-slip vinyl & carpet tiled flooring, white oak doors, Heat & Cool air conditioning, double-glazed UPVC windows and a 2.35m suspended ceiling.
Externally clad with Plastisol (plastic coated steel) on the ground floor and timber over the first floor, the new building is functional and aesthetically pleasing complying with the planning conditions.
Module-AR Limited required just 1 day to deliver the modules and this was completed on a Sunday to minimise any disturbance to the College or local community. In total the project was completed in just 12 weeks which is up to 50% faster when compared to traditional constructions.
Words from the client
Tristan Shanahan, Director of Estates & Security at Stanmore College, states: "We were very happy with the installation of this building, as it went in with minimum fuss and bother, and the quality of the construction was evident by the ease with which it dropped onto the existing base. As a working environment it has proven to be very comfortable, with the heat pump units allowing us to maintain an optimum temperature throughout the changing seasons. The supplied plant and equipment (lift, climate control, kitchen facilities etc.) has been reliable and robust, with minimal need for reactive maintenance. The site management was excellent and it was a pleasure to work consistently with the same people from start to finish. I would have no hesitation in recommending Module-AR to anybody looking to get a great value for money, and good quality modular building installed, not only for education but as a great general working environment."
