The headmaster of Blanford Mere Primary School in Dudley wanted a rapid solution to a shortage of classroom space, but required something more durable than lightweight portable structures.
Load-bearing Thermomass® walls provided this, allowing timber roof trusses to be simply loaded onto the wall panels.
Modular Thermomass® classroom blocks are held in stock at Buchan Concrete Solutions, allowing this particular classroom block to be erected in one day.
The finish is an imprinted brick-effect, which is masonry painted after installation.
Off-site manufacturing of these concrete wall panels, provided the security and robustness of traditional building methods while giving the benefits of a short on-site programme.
