Educational | Maccom - Portable and Modular Building Specialists

CleverClass is a range of innovative, energy-efficient,
comfortable, plug and play modular buildings made specifically
for the education sector. Their clever off-site construction can
result in savings in the region of 50 Euros a week in running
costs alone, making them the intelligent cost-effective choice
for education authorities.

CLEVER CONSTRUCTION
Completed Locally

Manufactured by the McAvoy Group, CleverClass is a new way of looking
at modular buildings. Constructued off-site by local craftspeople using the
latest materials and technologies, they challenge the energy ratings of even
traditional builds. With plug and play technology capabilities, increased levels
of air tightness, improved wall, floor and ceiling insulation, gas fired central
heating systems, dual flush toilets and PIR sensor lights, energy usage is kept to an absolute minimum. While the ‘Rental Return Purchase Scheme’ allows an education authority the flexibility to choose when to buy or hire without having to worry about ‘dead money.’

Increasingly unpredictable population changes, wavering budgets
and limited times to complete Programmes of Build, make modular
construction an ideal solution for many education authorities. Design
flexibility is central to this offer and is perfect for expansion or reduction
of a school site. The strength and durability of our modular buildings
also facilitates the remodelling and relocation of anything from secure
storage to classrooms and even entire schools.

We understand you

We have been working within the education sector for the last 35 years,
so we understand the challenges it is facing. A watchful eye on public
spending, fluctuating populations and restrictive budgets have to be
balanced with the need for energy efficient, comfortable, safe buildings
with digital technology capabilities.
CleverClass is our solution.

What makes us different?

We are a nationwide service with a proven track record who provide
a complete turnkey solution from design to completion. Thanks to
a continual renewal process, the average age of our modular fleet
is less than 3 years. Our dedicated contract managers, exceptional
customer services and streamlined ordering processes make dealing with
us every bit as easy and efficient, as a CleverClass modular building.

The McAvoy Group uses some of the very latest off-site manufacturing
techniques to make modular buildings the intelligent choice for the energy
aware authority. Both of our modular options pass all local authority building
and fire regulations and have been designed in line with the Simple
Building Energy Model (SBEM). They have therefore reached all the building
regulations and standards associated with air leakage, insulation values and
heating systems.
Increased levels of air tightness can be achieved – fewer CO2 emissions
Improved wall, floor and ceiling insulation – Reduced heating costs (U Values for external walls = 0.25W/m2K, floor = 0.25W/m2K, roof = 0.21W/m2K)
Gas fired, timed wet heating system – Lower running costs and CO2 emissions
Dual flush toilets – Reduces unnecessary water consumption
PIR Sensor lights – Reduces unnecessary electricity consumption

Faster from Order to Delivery

Because we do more off-site, we can deliver the final product to you faster.
We aim to complete our Programme of Build from ordering to build within
6 weeks and a subsequent erection on site within 1 week. For example,
a single classroom can be delivered onsite in two loads on a 45 ft trailer.
The installation of standard fittings like a gas powered, thermostatically
controlled wet-heating system and vinyl flooring is completed in the
factory for a neater look. Plus, our quality controlled off-site fast-track
plant assembly means that every building has a consistently high level
of quality.

We Never Rent and Forget!

Thanks to our nationwide service, we are able to provide customer
service throughout the island of Ireland and have done so for over
35 years. After installing a modular solution, we always make a site visit
after 4 weeks to answer any queries you might have and our dedicated
contract service manager, planned maintenance schedule and 24 hour
call out service means that you will always have a point of contact, no
matter what the problem might be.
