Modular Construction Based On a Timber Frame is a More Flexible System and Can Meet a Large Variety of Needs

As a modern method of construction, sectional modular buildings using timber frame are far more versatile than you might think.

Each building can be designed to the specific needs of the customer and make best use of the available space. This means that there is no limit to how this construction method can be used.

A modern method of construction with no limitations

TG Escapes provide modular eco-buildings in education, leisure and business with over 700 complete projects in the UK. The architect designs have delivered buildings from 60 m2 m to 2000 m2. They include flat and pitched roofs, 2 storeys, large span studios and intimate breakout spaces. They are used for canteens, chapels, changing facilities, kiosks, training centres, cafes as well as offices and classrooms.

Our sectional modular process saves time and money versus a traditional build. This means less time onsite, causing less disruption, which is particularly important in education where educational continuity is paramount.

“The School and City Council really liked the end product concepts and we worked to benchmark TG Escapes against other providers as well as visiting a scheme in progress beforehand.” - Building Consultancy Project Manager

Fully inclusive turnkey service

We offer a full Design and Build service undertaking all principal designer and principal contractor duties. Our turnkey solutions include planning permissions (where required), site preparation by dedicated groundworks experts and full safety compliance. We have a dedicated team including in house design and pre-contract resource committed to supporting consultants with tenders, grants and bids. We offer a variety of finishes including timber or composite cladding, render in a range of colours and brick slips.

“TG Escapes were very efficient and accommodating, the team fitted into the school perfectly and the children loved watching the builders work on the new project.” - Chartered Building Surveyor.

Long lasting and highly energy efficient structures

Our buildings are permanent structures built using sustainable materials. Our timber frames are highly insulated and perform exceptionally well versus a cavity wall construction. Our buildings are designed to be aesthetically pleasing, ergonomic and highly practical but, just as importantly, they are built to last 60 years or more with appropriate maintenance.

Education needs and approaches may well be very different in the future and our timber buildings are far more adaptable than a rigid brick option.

A significant consequence of the way in which our buildings are constructed is that they are highly energy efficient to run and are classed at least as A-rated structures. With suitable PV solar panels, these buildings can be classified as ‘Net Zero’ in operation.

We provide several warranties upon the completion of the build. Each building comes with a 10-year structural warranty (covering foundations, floors, walls), and we provide an additional 1 year warranty for all fixtures and fittings. Our roofs use an Evalon single ply membrane from an international leader in rubber roof manufacture.

A Construction Line Gold member, an approved partner of the Institute of School Business Leadership (ISBL) and a member of the British Educational Suppliers Association (BESA), customers score us 4.9 out of 5 based on 154 reviews.

“Working with TG Escapes was very good. The buildings provide a better-quality environment for staff and students.” - Estates & Facilities Manager.
