Spaciotempo hold key to alleviate pressures faced by Education Sector with temporary teaching facilities.

As the new Spring term rolls around and exams are set to take place back on academic grounds for the first time in 2 years, it might be time to put plans in place now for the 2022 exam season – taking place this Summer.
As academic institutions recover in a post-pandemic World, they might discover that they desperately need additional space on site to successfully accommodate such activities. That’s where Spaciotempo can provide a lending hand.
Not only can they install temporary exam halls, but temporary & semi-permanent classrooms, sports halls, auditoriums and so much more. Each and every build can be produced bespoke and provides the potential to be reused or redefined for further use.
Spaciotempo also recognise that existing buildings on campus require a little TLC from time to time – whether it be because of refurbishment, building works or even fire – but also that continuity and routine must endure for the benefit of learning. As the buildings are surface mounted, they can be erected and in-use in a matter of weeks rather than months, ensuring classroom lessons and extra-curricular activities can continue unaffected.
Not only can a Spaciotempo structure be rapidly installed, but it can also be much more cost effective than a traditional building and is typically 1/3rd of the cost, freeing up funds to be spent elsewhere in the institution. For example, a 15 x 30m sports hall could be yours from as little £935 a week + VAT.

Daz Logan, Managing Director of Spaciotempo UK, re-affirmed the businesses’ commitment to academic institutions by highlighting the importance of their recovery.

“Education across the UK has already been greatly impacted over the past 3 or 4 years due to the Covid-19 pandemic and we can play a part in helping academic institutions get set for a brighter future. The way we can do that is by providing much needed infrastructure that is both cost effective and rapidly installed, whatever the requirements.”
He added “We have 50 years’ worth of experience and expertise and can provide quality facilities ranging from temporary classrooms to indoor swimming pools, complete with interior fit out as we have delivered time and time again in the past.”

…Funding…
Furthermore, in partnership with Schools Finance Direct, Spaciotempo can help you explore the relevant finance options, provide clear written finance quotations, create a work plan and support and assist you through the whole process.
Schools Finance Direct can provide solutions that meet the complex conditions concerning operating leases and are able to finance temporary buildings for education from £80k up to £2m on plans from 2-7 years.

Rubb Buildings Ltd was selected to design, manufacture and construct a 40m wide x 55m long steel and fabric clad Sport Arena for the University of York.

The indoor multi sports facility features an apex height of 13.4m and an internal clear centre height of 11.9m. The Mansard, multi-pitch roof provides an internal volume of playing space at 20,600m3.

The sports building includes a central, premier standard, multi-sports court for recreational and performance level basketball, netball, badminton, futsal and volleyball.

 

 

The area can be divided into three sections with vertical partitions, which can each accommodate a basketball or volleyball court or up to four badminton courts. The facility can also be transformed to create a full hall show court for all sports including basketball, which will be supported by drop-down basketball nets and three scoreboards.

 

 

 

The 6.7m high sidewalls and end gables feature 80mm thick steel cladding, and Rubb’s Thermohall® insulated fabric membrane completes the roof of the facility.

Rubb’s brief was to provide a sports structure with a greater internal height clearance than an existing Rubb sports building. This would help the university achieve its aim of hosting more competitive sports events within the facility, with the main emphasis on badminton.

The sports building also includes a storage room for sports equipment. One main glass panel entrance door, six double pedestrian doors and one 4m x 4m roller shutter door provide access and egress to the sports hall. A dividing partition has been constructed between the playing area and the viewing walkway. A high level, gas fired heating system and LED lighting system, both designed to Sport England specifications is installed in the sports facility.

Education is returning to its rightful place on the national agenda now steps are being taken to improve access, outcomes and opportunities for children across the UK as they return to school in the post Covid era.

 

 While the emphasis has traditionally been on resources and teaching quality, the role of the immediate environment is becoming even more important in helping students learn in spaces where the focus is now more than ever on wellbeing, with acoustics, light reflectance, low VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) and cleanability at the forefront.

 

 Here Zentia looks at how the specification of appropriate ceiling systems have helped two very different schools with their requirements.

 

Morley Meadows

 

A new school for a new community in Plymouth has relied on Zentia’s ceiling solutions for delivering both form and function.

Some 1,200m2 of Zentia’s Perla OP 0.95 Tegular 600mm x 600mm tiles, which were the first mineral tile in the world to win Cradle to Cradle status, feature in the classrooms, offices, stores and communal areas at state-of-the-art Morley Meadows primary school.

Part of Persimmon Homes’ Saltram Meadows development in Plymstock, the £5.8 million primary school also features Zentia’s 100% humidity resistant Hydroboard 600mm x 600mm tiles with Prelude 24 non-corrosive grid in the kitchen, showers, toilets and changing areas.

Designed by Stride Treglown architects, and delivered by main contractor Halsall Construction, the two-form entry school accommodates 420 pupils, with part of it able to be cordoned off so it can be used by other community groups out of hours.

Specialist sub-contractor Vizion Interiors had a team of up to 10 on site for eight months, installing a total of 1,650m2 of the Zentia products on ceilings, that in the main part, unusually, sloped to degrees of 35° to mimic the sloping roof.

For form, the Perla OP 0.95 tile features a smooth, low-gloss monolithic visual with best-in-class fully painted edges for additional aesthetics as well as durability. The tile also features high light reflectance (up to 86%) to reduce reliance on artificial light and Class A acoustic performance to sound absorption 0.95αw.

For function, as well as its Cradle to Cradle certification, Perla OP 0.95 also provides optimum indoor air quality (due to ultra-low A+ VOC emissions) and is manufactured from up to 64% recycled content and fully recyclable.

Hydroboard also features Class A acoustic performance to sound absorption 0.95αw and light reflectance of 82%.

Vizion Interiors’ contracts manager Andy West said: “The Zentia products were already specified but we would have put them forward regardless because they are superior products which are more readily available, and we have a fantastic working relationship with the area sales manager.

“They had to perform both aesthetically and acoustically and we also promoted the Cradle to Cradle factor as well as the long-term potential recycling benefits. They look fantastic. The grid coped with the design magnificently and the client and local authority have all commented very positively.”

He added: “This project was challenging due to the design and numerous clashes on site with other trades. Setting out was laborious as all the classrooms had to follow the raking roof pitch but in the end it was effective.”

 

Adam Church, director in charge at Persimmon Homes Cornwall, said: “Saltram Meadow is a major development which has already rejuvenated the area. As well as delivering much-needed homes, we are committed to providing the infrastructure essential for building a community for new residents and a key part of that is the school. The building offers an exceptional learning environment for the children living on the development.”

The distributor for Morley Meadows primary school was SIG Plymouth.

 

Ysgol Gymraeg Bro Morgannwg

 

A plethora of Zentia products met a multitude of challenges at a redeveloped Welsh school.

Five square-edged mineral products from Zentia were used on the £20 million regeneration of Ysgol Gymraeg Bro Morgannwg school in Barry, Vale of Glamorgan, South Wales, that included additional BB93 accommodation for 300 pupils.

The modernisation and upgrade of facilities at the school saw the construction of five new extensions, including a design and technology teaching block, a new sports hall, and a reception area and dining hall.

Zentia’s Perla tiles, which feature light reflectance of 86%, were used in the corridors and circulation spaces while sister Perla dB tiles, which perform to sound absorption Class C, featured in the classrooms.

Antimicrobial Bioguard Acoustic tiles, which also perform to sound absorption Class C, were used in the food technology classrooms, and Bioguard tiles, which can be used in clean rooms with ISO 5 classification in accordance with ISO 14644-1:1999, in the kitchens. Finally, Hydroboard tiles, which are 100% humidity resistant and perform to sound absorption Class A, were used with a Prelude non-corrosive suspension grid in the changing rooms and toilets.

They were selected by Austin Smith Lord architects, who have specified Zentia many times before for school projects, as they met the aesthetic and acoustic requirements of this particular 11,000m2 steel-framed scheme.

Architect Matthew Wray said: “Our valued client, Vale of Glamorgan County Council, was extremely happy with the project overall and it’s something we’re really proud of.”

Specialist sub-contractor Richard Kemble Contracts, who are a member of Zentia’s Pinnacle partnership scheme, had a team of up to 10 working on site, installing a total of 7,168m2 of Zentia products, for 28 months.

 

Richard Kemble said: “This project was challenging as we were just starting when the pandemic hit which caused materials and labour shortages. It was also part phased refurbishment and that meant working around the school children and teachers during term time.”

He added: “Zentia provided technical backup as some classrooms needed to have additional acoustic rating so further calculations were carried out and the Perla dB tile was specified and used in the majority of classrooms to maintain the optimum levels of acoustic performance.”

 

Ysgol Gymraeg Bro Morgannwg brings to life the school’s vision to create an exemplar environment on a single campus, where pupils start primary school and finish sixth form all within one site. IT and the remodelled sixth-form area are now at the heart of the school, promoting Welsh language learning post-16.

Main contractor ISG won the contract on the influential SEWSCAP capital works framework as part of the Welsh government’s 21st Century Schools and Colleges Programme, designed to transform and upgrade the country’s education estate.

Externally, ISG delivered six new multi-use games areas and a floodlit 3G all-weather rugby sports pitch, which is available for community use out of school hours.

Zoe Price, group director for public sector frameworks at ISG, explained: “Important capital frameworks like SEWSCAP provide the space and early involvement that enables contractors to problem solve creatively and develop innovative solutions that prove transformative to programmes, budgets and social value outcomes for our local communities.”

Ysgol Gymraeg Bro Morgannwg won a ‘Highly Commended’ across the Value and Sustainability categories in the 2021 Constructing Excellence Wales awards. It was also a finalist in the Digital Construction and Innovation awards. The Vale of Glamorgan were also a finalist in the ‘Client of the Year’ award category and the council’s 21st Century Schools programme was also a finalist in the Integration and Collaborative Working and Value’ categories.

The distributor for Ysgol bro Morganwgg was SIG Cardiff.

Work has completed on a £5m building project at a leading co-educational, independent day school in Reading, which will extend its provision to children up to 16 years-old.

 

The school formerly catered for pupils aged three to 13, but as a result of the work, Crosfields School now has a new state-of-the-art senior school building and will have its first cohort of Year 11 pupils to sit their GCSEs in 2023.

 

During the project the main contractor,  Beard,  created a new front entrance, nine new classrooms, a staff area, medical centre, library, flexible performance space and a new café.

 

Having the best possible facilities available to all students is key to Crosfields aim to extend its exceptional education to pupils up to 16.

 

The school also holds charitable status, and is committed to reinvesting funds back into its facilities with recent projects including an artificial turf sports pitch, science labs, cricket pavilion, sports centre and swimming pool.

 

Craig Watson, Headmaster at Crosfields School said:  “Parents and pupils wanted the choice to stay at the school beyond year eight, and   this fantastic new building for our Senior pupils will mean that we can offer our broad and thorough education to many more students for years to come.

“We pride ourselves in offering the best environment for pupils to learn and develop in, and the new facilities will ensure that our students continue to thrive in an outstanding learning space.”

 

Jamie Harwood, director for Beard’s Swindon office, added: “One of the key aspects to this project was the close relationship with the client. Despite some hurdles to overcome, by working together and communicating openly, we delivered these exceptional new facilities in time for the children to start their new term.

“This project fits firmly into the Beard ethos that buildings are spaces for living, working, playing, performing and connecting.

“It’s unquantifiable the impact these new buildings will have, the friendships that will be forged in them, and the education that takes place within them.”

WATES AND THE DEPARTMENT FOR EDUCATION BEGIN WORK ON FIRST NET-ZERO SCHOOLS

Work begins on the first schools in the DfE’s Schools Rebuilding Programme, Lytham St Annes High School, Littleborough Community Primary School and Nursery, and Whitworth Community High School

Wates will use pioneering modern methods of construction to build some of the UK’s first net-zero schools, supporting the country’s ambitious climate goals

 

Wates and the Department for Education (DfE) have today announced that work has begun on building some of the UK’s first net-zero schools.

Lytham St Annes High School, Littleborough Community Primary School and Nursery, and Whitworth Community High School are the first to be built as part of the DfE’s 10-year Schools Rebuilding Programme.

Wates, one of the UK’s leading family-owned construction, residential development, and property services companies, will be building the schools using pioneering modern methods of construction. Procured via the Department for Education’s (DfE’s) Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) Framework, they are part of a batch of six schools awarded to Wates Construction in January 2020.

Once work is completed the schools will be net-zero in operation and are among the first schools built by Wates to these standards. The project is being delivered using Wates’ Adapt solution, a component-based school kit which offers a more sustainable method of construction, ensuring less waste and higher finished quality through its emphasis on offsite manufacture.

The ‘fabric first’ approach is optimised to provide very high levels of insulation and air tightness. In doing so, schools are significantly better than the standard Building Regulations and ensures that heating demand and energy consumption is minimised, supplemented by the use of efficient heating plant, LED lighting, and simple controls.

 

 

 

 Project details:

  • Lytham St Annes High School (Lancashire) – delivering a new two-storey main school block and detached sports hall, with work due to be completed in 2023. All new build elements will be net-zero carbon in operation, achieved through a combination of enhanced building fabric, passive ventilation chimneys, mechanical heat recovery systems and on site offsetting of energy use through an extensive biosolar roof system.
  • Littleborough Community Primary School (Greater Manchester) – delivering two-storeys on land within the existing Littleborough campus, including 14 new classrooms, a library, a new sports/assembly hall, Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) and a 420-place primary school providing 60 places for each year group along with a 26-place nursery. The sustainable design includes an optimised thermal envelope with increased insulation and triple glazed windows, optimised window sizes to maximise daylighting together with rooflights and lightwells, enhanced ventilation with openable windows to classrooms and solar panels.
  • Whitworth Community High School (Lancashire) – delivering a new 750-place secondary school, comprising of a two and three-storey main teaching block with classrooms, main hall, specialist technology spaces. A minimum of 70 per cent of the building’s PMV (pre-manufactured value) will be constructed using offsite manufacturing techniques, while other sustainable aspects of the build will feature roof-mounted photovoltaics, biosolar green roofs, heat recovery systems, sustainable drainage systems, offsite engineered thermal envelope and electrical car charging points

Gary Campbell-Dykes, Education Director at Wates, said:

“We are delighted to be supporting the Department for Education on this exciting and innovative project, delivering one of the first net-zero schools in the UK. The construction industry has a huge role to play in helping meet the country’s ambitious climate goals, and this marks an important step in our journey towards achieving net-zero. Wates’ mission is to be a force for good, driven by our commitment to become the most sustainable, trusted and progressive business in the sector, and we have now delivered more than £500m worth of school construction through our ‘Adapt’ solution, which offers a more sustainable method of construction, and delivers efficient buildings and services for our customers.”

 

A DfE spokesperson said:

“Tens of thousands of pupils are set to benefit from new, modern, energy-efficient school buildings as 100 schools are confirmed for the first two waves of the Prime Minister’s ten-year School Rebuilding Programme, to level up opportunities for all. The initial rebuilds and refurbishments will create modern education environments, providing new facilities from classrooms and science labs to sports halls and dining rooms”.

More and more education providers are using procurement frameworks for construction and refurbishment projects.

In the nine years since we first launched the schools and community buildings framework, we’ve helped to procure works on everything from the construction of a new £30million secondary school, to the painting and decorating of classrooms.
And interest is still growing – so much so that we’re expanding the scope of the framework to include infrastructure works from this autumn.

Why procure through a framework?
Speaking to our clients, they recognise the value of a framework’s in-built flexibility in procurement routes, and the ability to make a “fast track” appointment of a supplier.
This can lead to significant cost, time and effort savings at the pre-construction phase, and it helps to establish an efficient and fruitful working relationship between client and supplier, meaning more value can be derived throughout the life of the project.
For example, the iconic Degree Apprentice Centre at the University of Warwick in Coventry is the result of such a partnership. Kier weas appointed to the £10 million assignment involving a three-storey build on an old hardcore car park, with an IT teaching lab, meeting rooms, nine teaching rooms, an open-plan breakout area and a ground-floor science lab.
The striking design brings to life the client’s vision, and contains innovative solutions developed through close working between Kier and the client’s design team. Providing a bridge from education to industry employment, the building now accommodates 60 to 90 students in state-of-the-art, technology-enabled seminar rooms and multi-functional teaching rooms.
The project was completed on budget and on time within 18 months of inception, including 54 weeks of onsite construction.
Elsewhere, we partnered The Highland Council with Morrison Construction for the refurbishment of the grade-B listed Inverness High School. Built in 1937, the art deco school was in need of a revamp and modernisation.
Intrusive surveys revealed structural defects, so the scope of the project had to be widened to address these. The relationship between the two partners enabled this to happen seamlessly, leading to time and cost benefits in terms of procurement and programme.
Fourteen classrooms, offices and a brand-new state-of-the-art biomass energy centre were built during the first phase of the project, with works having to be delivered in a live school environment. To ensure they could do so effectively, Morrison laid the foundations for an excellent relationship with the school and the pupils by taking part in sponsored walks, attending career evenings and donating school football strips.
The Highland Council has also recently reused our framework to procure Kier to build the new £15million Ness Castle Primary School in Inverness.

Our new framework
With our current framework Schools and Community Buildings 2 (SCB2) coming to an end this autumn, we’re replacing it with Public Buildings 3 (PB3) – renamed as it has been expanded to deliver infrastructure projects, including student accommodation, with six lots instead of four.
We’ve also split refurbishment from new build in the lower project value bands to help with ease of procurement, and to encourage local, specialist firms to bid to be on our supplier list.
While looking at suppliers for the framework, we’ve done so with the country’s net zero goals in mind, so have assessed their capability for delivering low energy and zero carbon buildings, including any prior BREEAM credentials.
Capability in delivering Special Educational Needs Schools has also been factored in to ensure we have the right skills within the framework for such projects.
More details about the new PB3 framework – including the names of suppliers – will be announced on LHC’s website over the next few weeks. Please do contact us to find out how we might be able to help you find the perfect delivery partner for your project.

When it came to the specification of a replacement rainwater system for a 19th century school building , Brett Martin’s Cascade Cast Iron Style Rainwater System offered authentic detailing, long-term performance and ease of installation without compromising the integrity of the building.

Located in the West Midlands and close to Wolverhampton, the original cast iron rainwater system at Wightwick Hall School was no longer fit for purpose and required replacement as part of remedial works prior to the school’s conversion to an academy. Brett Martin provided the client with full on-site technical support as well as recommending a cost-effective rainwater solution which had the look and feel of cast iron but offered the long-term benefits of plastic.

Due to the building’s age and change of use over the years, there were no technical drawings from which a bill of quantities could be created. To meet the challenge, Brett Martin’s technical team were able to visit the site and help with the specification along with calculations and assistance with installation techniques.

The specification of the Cascade rainwater system comprised 112mm Roundstyle Gutters and 68mm Round Downpipes with Tudor Rose Hoppers, all in Classic Black and providing the authentic detailing and finish they were looking for. This was complemented by the Cascade 110mm Push-Fit Soil System to provide a complete look which was architecturally sympathetic to the 19 th century building and the original detail of the previous cast iron system.

School site manager, Simon Bruce commented “We are very pleased with the replacement gutter and soil systems as the cast iron style is in keeping with the age and design of the school building. And since leaking gutters are now a thing of the past the Cascade will help protect the building for years to come.”

Significantly lighter than cast iron rainwater systems, Cascade is much quicker, easier and safer to install at height, helping to offer the contractor and their client huge savings in terms of on-site installation costs. The system also features external fixing lugs designed to facilitate the use of power tools, further speeding up installation.

Using a reputable manufacturer such as Brett Martin offers far more than the quality and versatility of the product itself – they provide superior technical support, detailed installation instructions and maintenance guidelines to ensure rainwater systems perform exactly as promised.

With this school building now fully protected and ready for its conversion to an academy, Brett Martin’s Cascade Cast Iron Style Rainwater System has met the aesthetic and performance requirements of the client whilst ensuring a fast, efficient and economical installation.

The new Winterstoke Hundred Academy Building (Images: Cabot Learning Foundation)

These are the first glimpses of what a new £30 million school for up to 1,200 students in Weston-super-Mare will look like.

Plans have been submitted to North Somerset Council by the Cabot Learning Federation (CLF) for an expansion of the Winterstoke Hundred Academy (WHA) at a new site at Locking Parklands.

It is hoped that plans will be approved in August and site preparation works will begin in October this year.

Construction is expected to begin in January 2022 with WHA current year seven students – who will be in year 10 at that time – the first cohort to use the school when it opens in 2023/24.

The current campus on Beaufighter Road will, at that stage, predominately house Post 16 and some Key Stage 4 students (Years 10 and 11).

The new Locking Parklands site will be developed as a space predominately for Key Stage 3 and 4 provision (Years 7 – 11).

Elements of the curriculum at all three key stages will be delivered in both sites and work undertaken to put in place a safe and sustainable travel route for students between the two sites.

The new school site at Locking Parklands will be delivered in two phases, with an initial phase delivering a 900-place school building by 2023/24.

There are also plans for future expansion of the school to accommodate up to 1,200 students.

However the federation said it had no plans to increase pupil admission numbers from its current 150 in each of the years seven to 11 cohorts.

 

Principal of Winterstoke Hundred Academy Ian Garforth said: “The chance to design, build and learn in a new school is a once-in-a-generation opportunity, and we’ve been delighted to work closely with both the design team and North Somerset Council to create a state-of-the-art building that the community can be proud of for years to come.”

“Our curriculum will specialise in environmental science and climate change and the new building, being delivered by developer Keir on behalf of North Somerset Council, will be an example of best practice in environmental design and energy efficiency.

“North Somerset Council has also committed to making the authority carbon neutral by 2030, so the design and construction of the new building will take that objective into consideration.”

Steve Taylor CEO of the Cabot Learning Federation said: “The development of an additional site for Winterstoke Hundred, the fastest growing school in the county, is truly exciting.

“Families in Weston in the future will be served by another strong school in the area, this time including excellent school-based sixth form provision.

“The impact will be felt for years to come.”

 

During the construction period, Keir will host a training pavilion on the site offering apprenticeships and workshops in sustainable building practices.

When the school is complete it will also be open to use by the local community.
