Sidney Stringer School

“From a potentially disastrous situation after the fire, we have been very pleased to work with professional companies who found solutions for us that are way beyond our expectations. In fact I can say that when you step into either our gymnasium or theatre you would never know that either was not a permanent structure. Both companies went the extra mile to provide all the additional materials we needed.”

Case Study

In the summer of 2007 a fire at Sidney Stringer School in Coventry destroyed many of the school buildings, necessitating a quick solution in order for lessons to recommence in time for the start of the new academic year. Portakabin was urgently engaged to supply temporary classroom space, but it soon became clear that there was an immediate requirement for two larger temporary buildings. Portakabin turned to Spaciotempo®, an existing business associate, to propose a solution.

Working with the school to establish their requirements, Spaciotempo® submitted a detailed proposal for a fully fitted gymnasium and theatre in October of the same year. By the following February two highly specified units had been installed, ready for use by the eager students.

The 15m x 30m gymnasium, constructed from heavy duty aluminium frames with Thermo roofs/gables and insulated UPVC walling, was provided with a turn key package of heating, lighting, ventilation and pvc insulated walls. Internally flush fitted internal walls, complete with windows, were installed to ensure both a safe and a comfortable environment for the students.

Spaciotempo® also organised and oversaw the fit of specialist sports flooring with line markings for a range of sports including basketball, tennis, football and badminton. A slightly smaller bespoke unit was gutter linked and divided into two to house a temporary theatre and a further classroom/meeting space.

The theatre was installed with a black out roof cover, high spec electrics and lights with all heating and ducting specified in black to merge in to the roof area. A double skinned, reinforced floor with high spec, non slip orange peel finish was sourced by Spaciotempo® as the finishing touch to the theatre. The build was completed in just 2ó weeks allowing sports and drama classes to resume as quickly as possible.
