Figuring out how to work with less space, time and cost? The Qube is your best formula.
We have hit the nail on the head when it comes to creating truly bespoke modular buildings. We’re unique in that we insist on using the highest quality materials, combined with the latest innovative design and Eco-smart features.
Add space unlike other modular building manufacturers who build to specified sizes. At The Qube we give you the freedom to create any size or shape of building you need, up to three storeys high. This means you can design to fit the space you have, however limited. You also have the flexibility to add further modules, in the future, when budgets allow. Subtract time and costs with buildings being fabricated off site, timescales can be reduced by up to 90%. Initial consultation to installation can take as little as five weeks to complete, with only 5-7 days on site. With our rapid build times, there is no better solution for coping with an urgent need for space whilst minimising disruption and ensuring faster returns on investment. Our modular approach and selection of materials ensure that construction time and costs are low. This allows you to create bigger and more highly specified buildings from your budget, compared to conventional new builds. Plus the flexibility to easily relocate them to another space at any time.
Installation of a modular building has never been so fast and efficient thanks to The Qube Assembled. It’s delivered to your site ready-made with minimal site preparation required. This means you can carry on with your educational activities, safe in the knowledge that any disturbance will be barely noticeable. The Qube Assembled is relocatable, extendable, stackable and of inspirational construction. Made of the highest quality materials combined with the latest innovative design and eco-smart features. The Qube Assembled is fully manufactured off-site in a factory controlled environment, meaning the building is finished to the highest possible specification.

The school were desperate for extra space to meet rising pupil numbers.
The Qube were asked, after successfully completing a high quality project the previous year, to assist with putting together a funding brief for ‘last minute’ YPLA funds, prepare and submit a planning application and provide a ‘turnkey’ solution incorporating full groundworks, fire and security alarms and provide full project management.
This allowed the school to go on summer holidays with the reassurance they would have the necessary teaching facilities for the new academic year.
CONTRACT VALUE £306,000.00
BUILD TIME 4 weeks on site
QUBE SIZE 200m2
QUBE USE A double classroom block complete with meeting area, toilet and cloakroom facilities.
THE BRIEF The Qube were asked by Goldsworth School to help them with providing additional facilities for rising school numbers in the new academic year.
THE SOLUTION The Qube worked with the school to design a facility which could be used for a range of activities and provided a ‘value for money’ solution. Incorporated, within the design, was an acoustic sliding partition which allowed the main area to be used as a large hall or could be divided into two teaching areas. The building also provided a separate meeting area, toilets and cloakroom facilities. The design was enhanced through the use of bi-fold doors and large windows to provide a naturally light and airy environment and this was complemented with a canopy over a decked area to allow the children to be taught about the natural environment at every opportunity.
THE OUTCOME The Qube provided a full design and build project incorporating planning and building regulation approval together with groundworks and project management. This provided the school with ‘peace of mind’ and a project on time and on budget.
