Reds10 are pleased to announce, that we have been awarded a project for Marylebone Boys’ School – their new temporary modular accommodation in Kilburn, North London.
The 10-month project will see the School’s new 3,200m2 temporary modular building ready to accommodate 480 pupils and 50 staff from September 2016, following Reds10’s work on the design, planning permission, offsite construction, installation and associated site work.
Since the beginning of the scheme in late October 2015, following a competitive tender process, we have commenced offsite construction of the fit-for-purpose facilities and been awarded planning permission just earlier this month.
Marylebone Boys’ School is a Free School, set up by parents, teachers, volunteers and local residents to meet the needs of the community for a high quality state secondary school, which offers a traditional education for boys. Originally opening in September 2014 to 120 Year 7 pupils, Marylebone Boys’ School doubled its pupil numbers the following year. With a plan of further expansion and a need to accommodate the increasing number of pupils as boys move through the education system, the School has commissioned a larger permanent site, which is currently planned to be completed in the 2017/2018 school year.
However, until that point, the School will need to be able to operate with larger numbers of staff and pupils in a space, which allows is suited to its expanding needs. For this purpose, Reds10 are providing the school with a temporary purpose-built modular building, able to house 480 pupils and 50 staff until the time comes for the School to move into its permanent premises.
Split over four floors and covering a total of over 3,200m2, the School’s temporary space will be equipped with science labs, a library, an ICT resource centre, music practice rooms, design & technology labs as well as sports, kitchen and dining facilities and more.
Following the award of planning consent by Brent Council in early March, offsite manufacturing for the fit-for-purpose facilities and associated site works are well under way, will the first units due for installation in early summer 2016.
