Appointed to deliver 15 new modular schools in Hamburg

We have been appointed by SBH | Schulbau Hamburg to support the construction of 15 new school-buildings, as part of a major education expansion programme in the City of Hamburg.

We will provide specialist project and cost management services as well as expert guidance for the deployment of offsite technologies to deliver buildings within a 15-month timeframe.

Our appointment follows the successful completion of a pilot school project using offsite technologies.

We worked with SBH | Schulbau Hamburg to develop a high quality, repeatable blueprint for schools. This will now inform the larger school building programme which could eventually see up to 36 buildings delivered by 2023.

The blueprint is based around the schools having a fixed central core encompassing key facilities, surrounded by flexible and adaptable space to allow for the bespoke requirements of each school.

Offsite technology is set to accelerate the building programme and respond to the city’s need for more school capacity.

Niall O’Reilly, Director said: “We are extremely proud to have supported the SBH | Schulbau Hamburg team in the development of this modular building solution in response to the growing demand for high quality and efficiently delivered school facilities in Hamburg.

This sustainable and flexible off-site modular framework will meet the city’s needs for new schools while delivering bright, new and inspiring places to learn.

Jan Schneck, Bereichsleitung Nord, SBH | Schulbau Hamburg said: "As the management company responsible for the realisation of school projects for the city of Hamburg, we are faced with the great task of expanding more than 120 schools in the coming years. The “Hamburger Klassenhaus”, a modular solution, plays an important role here.

We were able to appoint good partners, including Turner & Townsend as the project management team responsible for the implementation and support of these construction projects.
