Our marquees and structures are already being used across the education sector, allowing students and teaching staff to safely return. Our structures are also being used for a variety of support services like canteens, common rooms, staff rooms and additional cover from the harsher weather as we move into the winter months.

Our flexible structures can be tailored to your requirements, providing the right solution to your requirements. Below you can read more about some of the different solutions our structures are already providing across the UK.

Additional Lecture Halls and Classroom Space

We have installed marquees and structures at a number of Universities and Colleges across the UK, allowing classes to return on campus in a controlled and socially distanced environment. We have also provided additional space to both primary and secondary schools avoiding the need to split classes across separate rooms, providing suitably sized classroom space to ensure safe social distancing can take place.

Staff Rooms, Canteens and Common Rooms

Beyond the lecture hall or classroom, the education sector is facing challenges in a number of other areas. We have provided additional staff room space to ensure teaching staff have a safe environment to enjoy their lunch or time away from the classroom. We have also provided extensions to canteens and halls where students congregate during breaks and across lunchtime ensuring safe social distancing can be maintained.

Support Structures at Halls of Residence and Student Campuses

As students have returned to their Halls of Residences for the new term Universities and Colleges have faced new challenges on social distancing. We can provide additional space whether that be for recreational rooms, pop-up bars or catering solutions as well as sanitation facilities like additional toilet and shower blocks.

Safe and Controlled Protection from Inclement Weather

As the winter months draw nearer and the weather across the UK deteriorates, additional pressure is being placed on universities, colleges and schools to provide safe shelter for students. We can provide our marquees and structures in playgrounds and open spaces on campus to provide the necessary space that is simply not available indoors whilst maintaining safe social distancing. These structures can be walled or open sided and tailored to your requirements
