Our method of construction stems from our drive to
deliver eco-friendly projects. Our process meets all new
requirements brought under the Building Directive (recast)
2020, achieving an NZEB standard. Renewable energy can
be utilised by the use of air-source heat pumps, thus
minimising the carbon footprint of the build over the
Modular construction brings about many benefits for the
environment. In comparison to traditional build, modular
off-site construction greatly reduces the amount of waste
that is produced due to a controlled factory manufacturing
environment. Modular construction is also a less energy
intensive build method, minimising carbon footprint prior
to the building even being erected on-site and significantly
addressing the ‘cradle to grave’ assessment.
Bespoke steel structure designed to specific site conditions. Zero waste produced from this method of design and manufacture, while this enables a much more robust construction.
Cpac Modulars’ Hybrid Modular buildings can expect to have a lifespan of over 30 years and require little if any additional maintenance apart from normal day to day upkeep.
Cpac Modulars’ Hybrid Modular buildings can be designed to be more aesthetically pleasing than traditional modular construction methods. Architectural cladding, glass and flooring elements can add a new dimension which helps to fit within the local vernacular and be more pleasing for local authorities and communities.
Situated next to a new modern three storey school, this project
required a solution with a complementary look and feel to the existing
school. “Grey Box” style pre-manufactured classrooms were simply
not on the table from a user or planning perspective.
Griffeen Community College was designed and built
with the end user requirements to the forefront of our
consideration. Teaching and circulation spaces exceed
DoES minimum guidelines, providing ideal learning
spaces for students and teachers.
Accessibility for both ambulant disabled and disabled
pupils and staff was designed in at an early stage
ensuring facilities such as lifts, ambulant disabled
compliant stairs, adequate space for wheelchair turning
in rooms and corridors, braille signs on doors, and an
induction hearing loop system in the reception area.
Our Cpac Hybrid Modular space was built off-site and delivered in 4 days on a live campus environment which suited all stakeholders. Architecturally designed to the highest specification with the look and feel of a ground up build; this project stands as a best in class example of what modern school space provision can be.
