Our classrooms can provide the ideal alternative to a traditional extension or building complex. Built from sustainable materials and designed to be incredibly energy efficient, a modular eco-classroom is easier and cheaper to build than most brick and mortar buildings and far more durable and eco-friendly than temporary classrooms. This is particularly true for large scale extensions and buildings as our modular eco-classrooms are designed to be built with as little disturbance to the surrounding area as possible and to accommodate multiple functions and features.

Case Study: Woolwich Polytechnic
A secondary school and 6th form, Woolwich Polytechnic Secondary School needed a new art department to accommodate their growing number of students and was in dire need of an upgrade from the old, temporary classrooms they had been using.
The art block was the first of three build stages. The finished building now accommodates 600 pupils, including a 6th form common room, and uses large windows and open spaces to allow pupils to make the most out of natural light.
The eco-friendly nature of the building has also helped with educating pupils about the need to look after the environment. Built in 3 stages since 2012 for £1.8m net.
“It’s light, airy, you feel very connected to the outdoor space and it’s also been really positive having the art gallery outside our classrooms”
“The space is really light and airy, quiet and peaceful. It feels a real luxury to use rooms that are spacious but not echoey, bright and light but without glaring sunlight.”
“You are in effect getting a permanent building for half the cost of bricks and mortar. We were intrigued by TG Escapes’ different approach to learning environments and after visiting their other projects we were blown away.”
Uses and Functions
Due to their size, double-storey, multipurpose blocks can fulfill a number of functions within the school environment. They can provide an expansion to existing areas of the school or dedicated blocks for specific needs as well as incorporating many different functions together across various rooms and storeys.
TG Escapes modular technology can be used to construct a completely new educational site, quickly, cost effectively and with long term low energy consumption.
