Portakabin has handed over the first complete primary school in England to be built using modular construction

The new £3m primary school for Leeds City Council forms part of Carr Manor Community School which is now one of only two ‘through’ schools in Leeds, taking pupils from the age of 4 to 18.

It will ultimately accommodate 210 children, helping to address the rapid growth in demand for primary provision in the area.

Kevin Jones, director and general manager of Portakabin sales, said, “The success of this project, its aesthetics and the quality of the finished building have taken modular construction to a new level and we believe it will help change perceptions about just what Portakabin building solutions can now achieve. This is an exceptional building, constructed to the highest standards, for an outstanding school and a visionary client.”

“The new building system has brought significant advancements in the look, feel, sound and floor quality of the building - and has exceeded Building Regulations for thermal performance.”
