External, timber-framed classroom units offer all-year-round comfort and security without the heavy price tag associated with traditional brick-built buildings. Schools, colleges and educational establishments often require additional teaching space but simply do not have the space available inside the existing main buildings, and traditional extensions are not always practicable nor affordable. This is where Gembuild’s external, timber-framed units come into their own because they tick all boxes and represent astonishing value. They can also be sited pretty much anywhere in the grounds (subject to planning permission) and can be erected in a significantly shorter time than bricks and mortar, with minimal disruption.
Timber-framed Classroom Units – Features & Benefits:
With a 20-25 year guarantee on roofing, depending on type, and extremely heavily insulated floors, ceilings and walls (which are nearly 7 inches thick) you can rest assured that Gembuild classrooms will remain at a comfortable temperature all year round, although additional heating and air conditioning options are available too, for additional control. The positioning of double-glazed windows and doors is also extremely flexible so if the Head or teacher concerned requires more light than usual, Gembuild can fit additional floor-to-ceiling windows wherever required – and they all come with blinds as standard. Additional entrances/exits are also no problem.
Gembuild are usually on site for no more than ten days so timing can easily be organised to coincide with school or college breaks in the knowledge that the new room(s) will be completely finished by the time the students return. It’s also worth noting that our timber-framed teaching units include flexible window positioning, power points exactly where you need them and at whatever height you need them, plus all internal and external lighting along with skirting, architraves, finished walls, tiled or laminated floors as preferred, suspended ceilings with recessed downlights etc. Unlike with inferior ‘flat packs’ on the market, we do not just leave you with a shell to finish! We are also very experienced at incorporating fittings suitable for the disabled so extras like access ramps, attention chords, grip or ‘ballet’ rails and safety features like blended water pre-set to a safe temperature are no problem at all.
