Used Double Classroom for Paisley Primary School

Another cabin delivered, another happy customer

Should any school be considering such a procurement / venture, I would whole heartedly recommend choosing Portable Building Sales Ltd to contract the works.

Mrs. Hird, Headteacher, Paisley Primary School

Back in May 2014, Alison Hird the Head Teacher for Paisley Primary School in Kingston Upon Hull contacted us with regards to her school’s need for additional teaching space.

Alison had seen our new timber clad Clearview Woodland building on our website, but unfortunately this was outside of her budget. So Alison asked if we could timber clad a used building and add new Clearview feature windows.

We had never been asked to clad a used building in timber before, but quoted the project and surprisingly enough it wasn’t that much more expensive and came within the school’s budget.

We were asked to undertake the planning permission application and also compile a school evacuation plan for the local authority and in September 2014, planning permission was received.

The building was installed on 20th September to the delight of the Head Teacher and her staff. The building was clad externally in thermowood timber, and fully refurbished internally with new walls, floor coverings, lights and heat / cool air conditioning.

Since installing the double classroom, we now receive enquiries for used timber clad buildings from other schools and Alison has been kind enough to allow us to show a couple of schools her double classroom building.
