Thorndon School – A Quality Modular School Classroom from SMART

Name – Thorndon School

Brief – To create a modern & inspiring classroom

SMART Building – Ultra 5.3m x 3.2m

When one of our local Suffolk schools approached us to see if we could assist with supplying them with a state-of-the-art, modern and inspiring classroom, we were obviously only too happy to help.

SMART Garden Offices, suppliers of high-quality studio offices and garden buildings across the UK, has been working closely with schools all over the country for many years, delivering additional space solutions – quickly, efficiently and on time.

The two main areas that cause UK schools the biggest issues are space and budget. Many are already overcrowded, or do not have enough funds to provide the resources required.

These issues often mean that traditional brick-built extensions are difficult to fund and accommodate, as they can take months and months to complete, whilst installing utilitarian mobile classrooms can have a detrimental effect on children’s creativity and learning, which is why Thorndon School turned to SMART and their range of quality modular buildings.

Their brief was actually very simple – they needed:

  • An inspiring learning space;
  • A building that could be installed in a matter of days;
  • A building that could include a toilet facility;
  • A building that came in at a fixed budget;
  • A building that came with a warranty;
  • And a building that required minimal maintenance.

As you can see from the images, Thorndon chose one of our stunning Ultras as their school classroom, which sits beautifully in their playground, as though it was always meant to be there.

‘Having a SMART has made all the difference’

This studio office is a striking and contemporary quality modular building designed to excite and elevate learning to a new level. With its inviting portico entrance and floating red cedar panels, the Ultra is the ultimate in design and quality.

Fully insulated with industry leading insulation in the walls, floor and ceiling, this building is truly usable all year round, on the hottest of summer days or the coldest of winter days.

The crisp and spacious interior offers a blank canvas for the school classroom, to do as they wish with. Wipeable melamine walls create the perfect backdrop and require very little maintenance, the soft blue carpet flooring provides a touch of comfort.

When asked what difference the Ultra has made to the school, headteacher Tamsin Little replied:

“Having a SMART has made all the difference – we have a room that is personalised and less utilitarian than a mobile classroom. We have really been able to make the building our own.”

The Ultra was installed at a fixed price in a matter of just a few days. It has a peace of mind 10-year structural warranty and will provide Thorndon School with a truly inspiring learning space for many, many years to come.
