Modular SIPS for School Buildings


MODULAR SIPS  (Structural Insulated Panels) FOR SCHOOL BUILDINGS:

Originally developed for the BSF school building programme and now targeted towards the PF2 schools, a range of modular wall panel products have been developed and successfully implemented on a number of school projects with Balfour Beatty. The panelised system has been developed as part of the Balfour Beatty Modular system build approach to construction which facilitate rapid erection of the building envelope resulting in reduced construction times due to early availability of the internal work areas for the finished trades. Panels of up to 7.8m x 3.9m are lifted into position by cranes and secured to pre-engineered support brackets within a matter of minutes. Up to 28 large format panels are installed in a typical working day allowing the installation of the elevations a typical 6000sq.m academy size school to be delivered in a period of around 2 weeks. The elevation panels are developed in a detailed BIM model to exact dimensions for manufacturing. Accurate construction and installation then facilitated the installation of the windows to provide a weather tight enclosure in a very short timescale.


” The implementation of Off-Site manufacture for this school delivery programme was an essential part of our winning bid. Atom Consultants helped us develop this exceptional new delivery method for schools and provided our bid team with many highly detailed images which helped explain our proposals to the Clients team. “

Short description


Vauxhall Underground Station- London

The Vauxhall Underground Station modernisation is part of Transport for London’s ongoing investment into London’s public transport network to support economic growth and employment opportunities.

The £36m project entailed reconfiguration of the station’s ticket hall to accommodate extra ticket gates and wide-aisle gates, as well as the refurbishment of the stations’ subways, ticket hall and stairs. The main part of the project was to make the access to the station step-free, enabling the station to handle 40% more passengers by installing a new shaft and lift between the ticket hall and platforms. A particular challenge was posed by the station remaining fully operational while the construction work took place between 2014 and 2016.

The London Borough of Islington had a requirement for a new sports hall to be used out-of-hours by the local community and it was to be built on the roof of and existing school- Winton Primary School.

To minimise disruption to this ‘live’ site, a modular approach was adopted. All components of the build were pre-fabricated, starting from the structural steel wall and roof panels and ending with the beautiful western red cedar clad external facade.
