In total, LCC has invested £11.5m in providing interim classroom buildings for seven primary and six secondary schools.
Offsite construction specialist Portakabin was appointed to provide classroom space for the six secondary schools. As part of the project, Tecserv UK was sub-contracted to install fire safety and security systems to ensure the buildings and occupants were protected from fire and other security risks.

Tecserv UK was appointed to install fire safety and security systems within the Portakabin buildings at six schools. These schools had been identified as being in immediate need of classrooms in order to meet the demands for school places in the new academic year.
The buildings comprised 45 standard classrooms, nine science classrooms, three design and technology classrooms, an expressive arts studio, an art studio, multi-use spaces, toilets, changing rooms and showers, staff rooms and dining rooms.
The tight timescale meant that there were a number of challenges that only came to light as the project progressed. The Tecserv installation team liaised very closely with the Portakabin project team and other contractors to ensure all works were co-ordinated and scheduled efficiently to meet the project deadline.
The project was subsequently entered into and won the 2018 East Midlands Celebrating Construction Awards in the ‘Offsite Project of the Year’ category.
Please note Tecserv UK only operate within the United Kingdom – any work outside of this region cannot be considered.
