Darwin Group delivers new build space for Claremont Preparatory School

26 Oct 2021

Modular construction specialist Darwin Group has completed a brand-new teaching block at Claremont Preparatory School in East Sussex.

Darwin Group has provided an expansion of the preparatory school’s teaching facilities, allowing more space for existing nursery, reception, and its students. The 660m2 development offers a unique first floor linkway as well as eight classrooms; an office; group room; staff room and toilet facilities.

The modern exterior of the brand-new build was designed with numerous windows on each storey, creating a well-lit and spacious learning environment for the students and staff.

Darwin Group used its unique turnkey service, which covered all stages of design, planning and construction from start to finish. The highly skilled team of in-house designers, architects, town planners and construction professionals worked closely with Claremont School and their architect to design a modern and unique double-storey build.

Darwin Group used modern methods of construction for the build utilising its highly controlled environment at the Shrewsbury-based factory. This allowed for quality control checks of the modules and helped reduce waste during installation.

Quality control was implemented on-site by Darwin Group’s site managers, who ensured that the delivery and installation of each module was completed seamlessly with minimal disruption to the students, staff, and the surrounding local community.

Charles Pierce, Managing Director of Darwin Group, said: “The new development for Claremont School is a fantastic example of what we do best. Our team of designers specialise in high-quality educational buildings, and this is one that we are particularly proud of.

“We have created a space that is both striking to look at while also highly functional for both staff and students. The education sector is at the heart of our business, and it has been a pleasure to be able to deliver this project for Claremont School.”
