New modular block completed at Hallam Fields Junior School

Hallam Field Junior School new modular block

We are delighted to announce the successful completion of a modular build project at Hallam Fields Junior School in Ilkeston, Derbyshire.

Collaborating with Ideal Building Systems Ltd on behalf of Derbyshire County Council, Concertus was previously responsible for an internal refurbishment of the primary school building that aimed to improve office facilities and enhance the safeguarding of the main entrance. However, this work led to the removal of two existing classroom spaces. Since the site had limited space available, the only option was to build on a sloping scrubland next to the existing two-story school building. This presented construction access challenges and required dealing with a sloping site and underlying rock.

The new building comprises two 56m2 classrooms, along with toilet and accessible toilet facilities. The design of the building incorporates large end-elevation windows and roof lights to provide natural daylight and ventilation to even the deepest parts of the building. The external cladding was chosen to match the school’s colours. We are thrilled to see the children enjoying their new classrooms!
