Trio of modular school wins for Extraspace

28th January, 2019

Offsite specialist Extraspace has landed three deals for extra educational facilities in Oldham.

Extraspace's contract at Greenfield Primary School includes a new build after demolition of the old school while at The Oldham North Academy it will provide a new three-storey extension, dining hall extension and refurbishment works.

At Crompton House Church Of England School Extraspace will create a new three-storey teaching block and dining hall extension.

Phillip Hutton, Business Development Director at Extraspace Solutions said: "Any building project can be demanding, but for schools these challenges can be exacerbated, especially when working on a site where students are still present.

"The offsite construction element is vital to success, with schools able to fully operate whilst major construction works are proceeding.

"The vastly reduced project timeframe compared to traditional methods is of great, almost priceless importance."

Oldham Council & Unity Partnership, who provide direct professional services to the Council, have been a driving force in the adoption of modular construction methods.

On previous projects at Northmoor and Hollinwood Academies, also delivered by Extraspace Solutions, Oldham Council & Unity Partnership were fully integrated as part of the project team, a factor crucial to the delivery of the high profile schemes.

Project Manager for Unity Partnership, Ian Foy stated: "We are delighted to work with Extraspace and their integrated project team to deliver such exciting high profile educational facilities within Oldham.

"We are embracing modular construction methodologies as they provide a solution that delivers predictable quality that maximises time and budget efficiencies."

The Solid Wood Solutions event reflects the swift upward trajectory that materials such as cross laminated timber (CLT) are now on as a sustainable, structural alternative to steel and concrete.

Solid Wood Solutions shines a spotlight on pioneering projects through informative case studies presented by those who conceived and developed the buildings that are gaining global attention. 

As engineered timber technology is one of the fastest growing offsite methods of construction, this event is designed to inspire through innovation. The event consists of a bespoke exhibition of circa 25-30 companies from within the CLT, LVL and glulam technology sectors, plus complementary solutions such as SIPS and cladding/fenestration solutions with a conference of approximately 150 delegates.
