The Chiltern School New Modular Building
Houghton Regis, Bedfordshire
Bowman Riley designed a new modular school building at The Chiltern School, a coeducational school for pupils with a range of special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
Located over two sites in Dunstable and Houghton Regis, Bedfordshire, the school accepts pupils aged between 3 and 19 years from all over the central Bedfordshire area. The school was in need of additional classroom space to accommodate growing pupil numbers since its formation in 2012.
Working for modular contractor Reds10 and alongside procurement specialists AMR Consult, we designed a new modular building at the Houghton Regis site. The building was designed to accommodate four classrooms, each with a storage room, central corridor and WC provision.
Manufactured off-site and installed on site over a three week period, the new building was delivered successfully to a high quality and on a fast-track basis during the summer holiday period.
