Cheadle Hulme School turned to bespoke off-site specialists Elite Systems to create a modular solution for its new reception classroom.
Elite Systems installed extra glazing and sound insulation to the rear of the building, which was specified to mitigate the noise from the railway line which runs adjacent to the site of the new building. As part of this process, Elite created an inner wall with an air gap to prevent reverberation, achieving acoustic performance level of 60dB Rw.
They spent just four weeks on-site installing the building, including fitting a pumping station, hoop-top fencing and gates, and cladding the classroom in an attractive cedar finish.
The new modular reception classroom comfortably passed the requirements for low emissions and achieved a B Energy Performance Asset Rating in recognition of its energy efficiency.
