Premier Modular puts great value on forming strong, mutually beneficial client relationships. They have developed formidable longstanding client partnerships through their exceptional customer service, forward thinking attitude, their striving for constant improvement and innovation and the use of open and transparent working practice where all ideas are welcome.
In Manchester one of these partnerships has been used to great effect. Premier worked with ISG Construction and their design team partners from the outset to bid for the Manchester Schools Framework through the Northwest Construction Hub Medium Value Framework. ISG were successful with the £25m school deal which would see them work on nine new build and refurbishment projects across Greater Manchester through 2017 & 2018
In Phase 1 Premier worked on two schools; Firstly providing a new permanent classroom block to accommodate an additional form of entry for St Margaret’s C of E Primary School. Creating approximately 775m2 of accommodation for their nursery and foundation stage classes.
The building was clad in modern coloured panels fitted off site and finished with canopies to form large outdoor play areas. As the building sat in the existing school playground, offsite construction was considered the best solution to minimise disruption and finish the building before the new school year.
The successful partnership then continued with the provision of a dining hall extension at St Matthews RC High School, incorporating 5 modules with a large glazed front to provide the necessary additional space. This was installed and completed during the summer holidays to eliminate disruption.
As we move through 2018 the partnership is currently delivering another six schools for Manchester. The largest is Beaver Road a full 2FE primary school, with the remaining five a combination of teaching space & small halls. All are to be completed for the new school year
The benefit of a partnership is the understanding that comes from working together and the lessons learnt. This has led to a standardisation of components giving increased efficiency through the design, manufacturing and installation process. Benefits are also realised through aligning working practices and improved communication. This has meant the use of a partnership has led to commercial and programme savings as well as improved quality and minimised defects
So in a market where the key priority is educational excellence, sustainability is of growing importance and facilities need to be flexible, functional and beautiful. The way forward has to be collaborative, engaged and open partnering agreements
