Modular Buildings for Schools – Designing from the Inside Out with EduBuild

Invaluable research is being ignored. Leaving behind an abundance of untapped potential. Learning environments are foundational to impactful education (more on this later), yet so many designs forsake this connection. 100% of students respond positively to human centrically designed environments, which make them feel better about school and themselves. So why aren’t all designs taking this into consideration? Luckily, Envoplan are combining modular construction with neuroarchitecture to help you unlock the full potential of your learning environments.

The vision

Ironically, the need for space is a growing challenge faced by the majority of schools. Just like you, Envoplan are dedicated to embracing the evolution of education and have come up with a fast and flexible solution that puts education first. Envoplan have created Edubuild; modular buildings specifically tailored to your schools goals and needs. Combined with partners Noble + Eaton’s vision of supporting schools to create environments that prioritise people, pedagogy, and place, designing from the inside out puts people first. By focusing on innovation and collaboration, we use human-centric design to optimise learning environments for all involved. Not only can you solve your need for space, but you can create space that has a lasting impact on your school and students.

What is human-centric design? 

Put simply, human-centric design is an approach that puts human needs, preferences, and experiences at the forefront. How does this relate to modular buildings? Well, human-centric design involves creating environments that are tailored to meet the needs of its inhabitants, which is particularly important in the academic sphere.
When it comes to transforming learning environments in a meaningful way, human-centric design is crucial. Not only can it help create spaces that promote student engagement, but opportunities for collaboration and learning outcomes are also bolstered. By designing classrooms and other learning spaces that are comfortable, inspiring, and adaptable, educators can help students feel more motivated and engaged in their studies.

How can it be achieved? 

It’s clear that such an approach lends itself to the world of education, but how can it be achieved? Accomplishing human-centric design in modular buildings requires careful planning and attention to detail. Some key considerations include:
  • Understanding the needs of the people who will be using the space, including students, teachers, and other staff members.
  • Creating spaces that are flexible and adaptable so that they can be easily reconfigured to meet changing needs.
  • Incorporating features that promote comfort and well-being, such as natural light, good air quality, and ergonomic furniture.
  • Paying attention to aesthetics and creating spaces that are visually appealing and inspiring.
  • Considering the role of technology in the learning environment and incorporating it in a way that enhances the learning experience without becoming a distraction.
Just to name a few. With these points on board, the operation is bound to run seamlessly. However, without the right team, this task may seem insurmountable. 

Exemplary designs require an exemplary team

Fortunately, the team at Envoplan has a wealth of experience in designing and constructing modular buildings and has gained extensive knowledge of the unique needs and requirements of schools in this sector. Our expertise and experience in the education sector mean that we have a deep understanding of the challenges and requirements of schools. Working with the school, we create learning spaces that are functional, aesthetically pleasing, and conducive to learning.
One key factor that sets us apart from other modular businesses is our approach to design. Rather than simply creating a standard design and fitting it to the school’s needs, we take a hands-on approach. Working closely with the school to fully understand the space needed and what the school is looking to achieve. By designing from the inside out, we ensure that the building is specifically tailored to the school’s needs and will meet its requirements perfectly.

The client’s contribution is pivotal. 

Collaboration is key. As such, the design process shouldn’t be monopolised by one party. Envoplan recognises this, involving clients closely throughout the journey. By collaborating with the school and encouraging their input, we can ensure that the end result is exactly what the school wants and needs. This collaborative approach assures that the school is fully satisfied with the final design and that the building will meet their requirements perfectly.

It’s more than aesthetics. 

As we’ve touched upon, our designs are more than just aesthetically pleasing; they are created with a focus on enhancing wellbeing, cognition, and learning outcomes. Our approach to designing educational spaces is centred around providing flexibility in design and accommodating different learning styles, ensuring that both students and staff can achieve their full potential.

Human-centric design requires personalisation. 

With a range of customisable solutions on offer, each design is tailored to suit the specific needs of individual students and teachers. We recognise that students learn in different ways and that the learning environment can significantly impact their academic journey. Therefore, our designs are focused on promoting student engagement, cooperation, and creativity. We believe that a well-designed space can facilitate learning and wellbeing, contributing to a comprehensive, well-rounded picture.

The importance of thoughtful design

With this multi-pronged approach, wellbeing is a priority that cannot be ignored. We understand that a well-designed space can significantly impact mental health, creating a positive atmosphere that promotes focus, concentration, and overall wellbeing. Our spaces are designed with natural light, acoustics, and air quality in mind to create a comfortable, healthy environment for learning.
On top of this, our designs are rooted in evidence-based research that shows the impact of different design elements on learning behaviours and attitudes. For example, we know that colour and lighting can significantly affect the mood and behaviour of individuals in a space. Therefore, we strategically use colour and lighting to create a stimulating, engaging environment that promotes learning.

Putting the person first

From the initial concept design to the final construction, Envoplan puts people at the centre of the process, working closely with our clients to understand their needs and preferences and incorporating these into the final product. With our innovative approach to design and construction, Envoplan is poised to lead the way in the development of modular buildings that truly revolve around the needs of the people who use them.
