Case Study 2 – Little Pumpkins


Case Study: Little Pumpkins

Little Pumpkins Day Nurseries:
Fully Fitted Nursery Classroom

Little Pumpkins Day Nurseries offer full and part-time placements for children aged between 3 months and 5 years.

Their bright, spacious day care centres located in South East London provide babies, toddlers, junior and pre-school children with a safe, happy and stimulating environment in which to grow and develop.

We were contracted to build a fully-fitted 44 sqm. module classroom to house 15 children.  Marleyeternit cladding, felted roof and internal fittings (including WCs, a kitchen, Forbo flooring, lighting, alarms, internal fire doors, external doors and windows) were installed at our premises as part of the offsite build process.

Whilst the client had considered other types of prefabricated structures, these could not be delivered to the same standards and with the same thermal efficiencies.  This quality assurance, combined with the use of SIPs with an expected lifespan exceeding 60 years, made our solution a perfect fit for Little Pumpkins’ module classroom.

The modules were built and fitted offsite in four weeks, working to plans produced by the client.  Onsite installation took a single afternoon, and was completed without issue.

The key challenge was negotiating access to quite a restricted site, but this was overcome by the use of a crane with a reach of 40m and a lifting capability of 250 tonnes.

In conjunction with the client and the architect the project was delivered on time and to specification.

I was very impressed by the professionalism, commitment and exceptional workmanship in the successful installation of our new modular classroom. The approach and attitude of the management team was impeccable, and they worked seamlessly with my lead architect, especially in relation to health and safety matters. The team at Little Pumpkins are so proud of our new luxury classroom.
