In the wake of the government’s announcement regarding the RAAC issue affecting schools in early September, a complex situation has unfolded, encompassing a multitude of public sector buildings, including universities, hospitals, care facilities, council offices, libraries, as well as several privately-owned theatres and halls.
As a consequence, many of these facilities have had to temporarily close their doors while inspections and necessary repair work are initiated. This has led to a proactive search for viable alternatives.
Over the upcoming months, the demand for high-quality temporary and semi-permanent structures is expected to surge significantly in response to this pressing issue.
Fews boasts a rich history of providing top-tier, comprehensive solutions across a wide range of sectors, including all levels of education, the NHS, associated enterprises, public institutions, construction, the nuclear industry, logistics, and the retail sector. We stand ready with tailored solutions to address any specific requirements.
Thanks to substantial investments in safety certifications, continuous staff training, and the use of premium-grade materials, Fews is well-equipped to construct secure structures in any environment. We can supply temporary classrooms, sports facilities, dining areas, assembly halls, office spaces, and even theatres, meeting the diverse needs of our clients.
In response to the government’s announcement in September, we swiftly delivered robust solutions to a school in Warwick and Oxford University. You can find detailed case studies on these projects here.
Temporary structures are not mere stopgap measures; they can be designed with sustainability at the forefront.
