Why not consider TG Escapes’ modular eco-buildings for additional SEND space?
TG Escapes provides inspirational learning spaces that are timber frame, sustainable and ecologically robust. Our modular eco-classrooms are designed using biophilic architectural principles and provide a time efficient, cost-effective solution for schools, affording standalone, naturally lit and tranquil spaces with covered walkways providing easy access to the outdoors.
Every project begins with a free site visit and survey so we can design a bespoke solution that meets your school’s specific requirements.
In a mainstream school, a SEND classroom can provide a primary learning base for students, away from the main school setting, that is quiet and empathetic. This allows them to calmly interact in a low stimulus environment, improving their learning capacity.
In a dedicated special needs setting our classrooms can provide breakout spaces, treatment rooms, performance studios, outdoor activity centres or even accommodation.
The benefits of having a standalone classroom, set apart from the main school buildings in a natural location, cannot be underestimated. Not only will it serve to establish a vital connection with nature, but it will also bestow an entirely different, tranquil feeling from the rest of the school.
For those students with significant disabilities, it can also open up a wealth of new opportunities to spend time in the outdoors that was previously inaccessible to them.
The basic biophilic architectural principle is to incorporate natural elements at every opportunity, from the materials used to the lighting, air quality and acoustics, offering a building’s occupants an effortless connection with nature and the outdoors.
Timber is the oldest building material and still the best in terms of longevity and environmental impact versus concrete and steel.
Three of the most crucial design elements are exposure to natural light, views of nature and easy physical access to the outside.
One of the most significant advantages of a modular building is that the modules can be assembled offsite while onsite preparations, such as foundations and amenity connections, occur simultaneously.
Not only is the construction process shorter, but fewer workers spend fewer hours on site significantly reducing labour costs. Indeed, the entire project will be quicker, quieter, safer and less disruptive.
In our economy, school buildings are one of the biggest collective consumers of energy and largest generators of waste. It has never been more important for schools to reduce their carbon footprint.
The environment has always been at the heart of our design process. We use modern, eco-friendly materials, methods and technologies to create sustainable, durable and ecologically sound classrooms that can be net zero in operation.
We also have a tree-planting scheme supporting young people and farmers in Uganda to re-forest. We gift these trees to our education customers, which has the benefit of offsetting 250Kg of carbon over the lifetime of each tree.
