When classrooms become too small or if a school is under construction, allocating space for teaching can be challenging. We’ve looked at how modular classrooms can make perfect temporary or permanent buildings, so you can choose whichever suits your needs best.
The advantages they offer are many, then, and also include the ease with which they can be installed – and if you choose refurbished instead of new, you will benefit even more. Refurbished modular classrooms are becoming an increasingly popular option, with many people choosing them over new units due to how useful they are.
Help the Environment
In an era of increasing environmental awareness, choosing a refurbished modular classroom can offer significant advantages for the environment. You’ll avoid construction, which creates a lot of carbon emissions, and improve the safety of the site; this is because the refurbishment and the fitting happens off-site, so any work that needs to be performed will not disrupt your daily operations (or the community’s).
So, opting for refurbished reduces unwanted landfill waste, and represents a highly sustainable approach to construction as well.
You can also have complete design flexibility. Refurbished modular buildings can be designed and reconfigured at will to meet all of your requirements, which includes size, layout and comfort. In essence, you can have as much or as little as you prefer, since refurbished buildings provide you with a high degree of versatility.
Financial savings are always important, no matter whether you need a modular classroom or a unit for the health sector. If you opt to go with refurbished instead of buying a brand new building, you’ll save money both at the moment of purchase and in the long run, since you’ll enjoy the same high quality as new modular classrooms.
You don’t need to compromise on quality. In fact, since modular classrooms are mainly used to by teachers and children, it’s important that you can trust the structural integrity of the building at all times. These modular classrooms are perfect, then, as they’re refurbished in controlled environments and subject to quality control checks at every stage of the process.
Refurbished modular classrooms are, then, the perfect environment for teachers and students, as they offer plenty of benefits to everyone involved. In fact, it’s fair to say they’re changing the face of education by providing low cost, highly efficient spaces that are ideal for the educational development of a child.
Modular classrooms are fantastic spaces that offer a quality learning environment to students everywhere.

Having a good environment is fundamental to making learning pleasant – instead of turning it into a daily torture. Many studies show that environment is one of the most important factors in education, and that is why things such as the layout of desks, lighting and the existence of different areas inside the classroom can affect the learning process.
1. Layout of the desks
A classical arrangement is to put the desks in several rows facing the teacher’s desk. But this is just one of many ways of organising a classroom.
This seems to be the best way for the teacher to present ideas to the students, because all of them will have the advantage of enjoying a clear view of the teacher and the board. Interaction of the whole group is also easier, as well as projecting videos and any other visual media without the risk of anyone complaining of a poor view.
Besides, when students are arranged in a U shape, they can see the whole group thus they feel more confident in participating and asking questions. This all makes learning usually more effective.
Some teachers prefer to focus on the individual needs of each student. In that case, desks can be organised in small groups or learning stations where they can help each other solve different exercises. The teacher can move around, helping each group where they need it the most.
A classroom should be a space that welcomes different desks’ arrangement to benefit the student’s learning process. Ideally, desks should be light and easy to handle so the space can be rearranged quickly and be used by different groups of students.
Proper lighting in the classroom is essential, as students are constantly focusing their sight on books and papers. However, it should be noticed that excessive light might make some of the students restless or hyperactive. For this reason, it’s always better to use the natural light that is provided by windows. Of course, some artificial light is also necessary for the winter months or a cloudy day. Lights can be installed in the ceiling or the walls, and ideally they should be adjusted depending on the kind of lesson.
3. Different Areas
The classroom shouldn’t be dominated by the layout of the desks. In fact, it can be arranged in such a way that different areas co-exist in the same space. For instance, cushions and pillows can be kept in the back so students can sit there in a more relaxing way during a reading hour. Having to stay at their desks for at least six hours every day can be quite stressful for them, so if they have the opportunity to move inside the class and change seats they will feel more motivated to learn.
Getting the right environment for learning is fundamental for in education, and we are here to help you as Excel Modular Buildings has many years of experience supplying mobile classrooms. Our buildings are ideal for a wide range of uses, such as nurseries, assembly halls, and changing rooms, among others.

Schools have been choosing to install modular classrooms for several reasons, including their cost-effectiveness. With school budgets getting increasingly tighter, mobile classrooms have been a popular choice.
An expansion to a school building can be not only costly but also time consuming, and modular classrooms provide less disruption to the normal school environment as they are built off-site. If you are looking for an efficient, cost-effective solution for your school, investing in modular classrooms will enable you to expand your school without compromising your budget.
Easy to Install
As modular classrooms are built off-site, they are constructed much more quickly than conventional buildings. At Excel Modular Buildings we have new buildings in stock, sure to fit your needs, whether you are looking for a standard layout unit or a modular building planned to your specific requirements.
Built with eco-friendly and sustainable materials, refurbished modular classrooms reduce your carbon emissions and the waste sent to the landfill. Modular classrooms are quick to install, and easy to remove after use.
Schools sometimes find that there isn’t enough space for their students and their needs. This low-cost solution is a great answer to a rapidly expanding student body and to overcrowding. Modular classrooms can maximise small land spaces and can be placed even if your school grounds aren’t fit for the construction of a traditional school building expansion.
School activities are diversifying more and more, and there isn’t always space for students to conduct both their classes and their after-school activities. Modular classrooms can be turned into any room that your school needs.
Whether you need an extra lab, a library, or a space for students to rehearse for a play, modular classrooms will easily provide your school with a comfortable learning space. A modular classroom is portable, which means that you can not only move it within school grounds to where it is needed, but also that it can be removed once no longer required.
At Excel Modular Buildings we have the right solution for your needs; our modular buildings are versatile and durable to ensure that your business runs smoothly. You want more information about how we can help you find a solution that meets your requirements, you can contact us by giving us a call on + 44 1482 488664.

Modular buildings provide an opportunity to provide more space in schools. They are quick to install with minimum disruption to the normal functioning of your school, and easy to relocate if necessary. They can be used as science laboratories, mobile classrooms, dance rooms, drama rooms, toilets and changing rooms, libraries, and administration areas, depending on your personal needs.
Schools have increasingly tighter budgets, while the number of students keeps increasing as the population grows. Modular buildings can be used in your school either as temporary or permanent solutions. If expanding your school buildings isn’t an option, then an interim modular building can be utilised for seasons where you might need extra space.
A professional service will ensure that there are no cut corners in any process of construction or installation. The high-quality will ensure that long-term costs are reduced, as there is less maintenance needed.
Using modular buildings brings advantages; less energy is used to produce a modular building, comparing to a traditionally build buildings. With their ease of installation, construction sites for modular buildings generate less vehicle movement, which reduces disruptions and carbon emissions.
The use of CAD Design allows for improved designs of modular buildings, leading to minimised construction costs. They are also safer, as CAD allows for quick identification of possible weak points that can be modified and strengthened before construction.
What to Keep In Mind
When choosing a modular building for your school, there are a few things you need to consider. You need to know if the modular buildings will comply with building regulations, including fire and insulation, and if they will comply with the design requirements of the Department for Education.
Health and safety are extremely important in every building, and schools are no different. At Excel Modular Buildings we take Health and Safety extremely seriously, and we always ensure that our buildings are installed in compliance to all requirements. Our installation/site teams are qualified with CSCS accreditation and all of our supervisors are NEBOSH certified.
