modular building is that the components can be assembled elsewhere while onsite preparations such as foundations and amenity connections occur simultaneously. Not only is the construction process shorter, but fewer workers spend fewer hours onsite significantly reducing labour costs. A standalone classroom, set apart from the main school buildings can serve to establish a vital connection with nature, and will have an entirely different, tranquil feeling from the rest of the school. For those students with special needs, it can also open up a wealth of new opportunity to spend time in the outdoors that was previously inaccessible to them.

Most cognitive experts agree that the

classroom environment has a significant impact upon a child’s ability to develop and learn. Sensitive location, combined with biophilic building design, can have a profound impact upon mental well-being, intellectual development and social skills.

Exposure to natural light stimulates the

production of serotonin which, among its many physical benefits, plays a vital role in maintaining mood balance and promoting a sense of

happiness. Views of nature are increasingly being shown to alleviate chronic low-grade stress and actually going outside into the natural

environment has a positive impact upon physical and mental health. Furthermore, easy access to the outdoors for both learning and play enhances socio-economic development by improving discipline and concentration, promoting creativity and encouraging positive social interactions. •We have built over 700 Eco Buildings in 12 years including sports pavilions, chapels, two storey classroom blocks, staff rooms, teacher training facilities, nurseries, SEND spaces 5
