Bardney School's Clearview 2 bay classroom is now installed, and the children are having a naming competition for their new classroom. We've offered to donate £50 for the book token prizes, as we do like to be accommodating!

Myth - somehow portable buildings are inferior to traditional buildings. Precision constructed using advanced materials in a factory, modular buildings are immune from build process weather problems which affect traditional building sites.

Great news for schools needing additional modular accommodation space.
Under the Permitted Development Rights for Schools, schools do not always need planning permission for a modular classroom building under 100 square metres.
We have also arranged to undertake the planning process on schools’ behalf through our partnership with Cerda Planning, where needed. This often ensures that the period of time to obtain planning can be reduced to 4 or 5 weeks from a typical 8 to 10 weeks.
Either way, this is excellent news for all schools seeking extra pupil space, both simplifying and speeding up the whole process.

Funding of £2 billion for school rebuilding between 2015 and 2021 has just been announced. With the money to be spent on  school building updates and extra accommodation, we hope this will be better value for money than some of the immensely expensive previous whole scale new school building programmes of the past decade. 
Our uniquely modern, light and airy Clearview modular buildings are an ideal solution to schools' accommodation needs, as portable buildings of very size will have an important part to play in providing all of the accommodation necessary for the future.

We're delighted to provide a new crew member kit for Humber Rescue. This local rescue service is close to us along the bank of the Humber Estuary, and we're pleased to be able to offer sponsorship to this deserving local emergency response unit.

Councils say a third of secondary schools will be short of pupil places within the next five years. The BBC report urges urgent action  - and we believe companies like ours have a major role to play in helping schools meet demand.

Yet another warning about the critical shortage of school places in England has emerged this week. The latest March 2014 National Audit Office report repeats there is "real strain" on places in English primary schools - with a quarter of a million extra school places needed by autumn 2014 alone.

Our order book for additional classroom provision reflects this demand ... and the bulge in required accommodation is moving into the secondary school sector too. Our portable building sector is working hard to fill the breach!

"Park and Ride"  Nottingham City Council clients are offered a "Park and Ride"  tour of Hull after our successful meeting!

We usually offer tea and biscuits for clients - but in this instance our Director gave the clients a tour of the sights of Hull, City of Culture 2017. 
Not a service many companies would offer!

Further to our earlier article about libraries, we're interested by the huge number of words to have entered common use in our language from other areas of the world.

The BBC article this week highlights this two way street, and the fact that many foreign words entered our language very early on in, via our past influences in the world.  English language has "borrowed" words for centuries. But is it now lending more than it's taking, asks Philip Durkin, deputy chief editor of the Oxford English Dictionary.

English speakers may not be famous for being au fait with foreign languages, but all of us use words taken from other languages every day.

In that last sentence au fait is an obvious example, but famous, foreign, languages, use, and taken are also borrowed words. Knowledge of what is being borrowed, and from where, provides an invaluable insight into the international relations of the English language.

Today English borrows words from other languages with a truly global reach.

This creates a complex map of our trade relations across the world. It's well worth a deeper look on the BBC News site, if you enjoy immersing yourself in the history and development of our language, as we do.

What a great idea! A huge array of research journal articles are going to be made available on computers within public libraries in the UK. This new public access to research articles on health, biological research, engineering and social sciences is a really welcome addition for developing the fund of public knowledge. Because the information is available only through our public library system, this should encourage people to use libraries now and in the future. 
We think this is an excellent way of developing both access to knowledge for the whole population, and the continuing relevance of the library system.
