Unique designs

With vaulted ceilings, Velux roof lights and low level windows we can create a light and airy welcoming environment.

Fast to build with minimal disruption

We are used to working around a live school but due to our fast build time we can often complete a project within a school holiday minimising disruption.

Cost management

We will ensure that your project is completed on time and within the budget whilst maintaining functionality and quality throughout.

Bespoke full turn-key service

We will manage the entire building project from design, permissions from local authorities, the complete building right down to coat pegs, external play areas and canopies all finished ready for you to move into.

Aesthetically considerate design

We design your new building to blend within with any setting, whether an existing school with a classic period building or a new purpose built development.

A building for all year round comfort

With underfloor heating and a highly insulated building as standard you can maintain a perfect living environment all year round.

We have been designing bespoke nursery, crèche and pre-schools buildings for over 32 years and will be delighted to work with you to design your perfect facility.

We will ensure that your building is fully compliant to the latest regulations and delivered on time. We will build to budget while maintaining an outstanding quality with features that create an environment that is calming and welcoming for children of all ages.

We can design a bespoke building development that is great value for money and has none of the restrictions or limitations that you can experience with an utilitarian modular or system build. We will be able to specify and use the external materials of your new building to blend in with any setting, whether at an existing school in a classic period building or a new modern purpose-built development.

Sample Plans

Purpose built nursery and pre-school

Kingswell Buildings Ltd were brought into this project when the initial architect’s design was found to be significantly over budget.  We were able to maintain the same footprint by reorganising the layout to reduce corridors and provide a more logical flow from the babies room to the under 2 year old space, leading on to 3 – 4 years playroom and finally a reception classroom.

We were able to bring the development within the schools budget incorporating features such as underfloor heating, interactive whiteboards, vaulted ceiling, Velux roof lights, large sliding glass doors, external canopies and landscaping around the new building. We also were able to redevelop the main school entrance as part of our works. We provided a full service from design, agents for Planning Permission, Building Regulations, external works, new services to site through to the building complete ready for the school to move their excited young clients in.

We are delighted to say that we brought this project in on time and on budget.  See our video case study to see the completed building and hear what the school have to say about our service.

52 Place Nursery

30 ft x 72 ft

This nursery for 52 children had a very tight time line which we managed to finish within. A larger facility with additional toilets and a main area that can cater for the increased number of children. Canopies were fitted at the entrance and the exit to the outdoor play areas giving protection from the weather when required. Deeper windows were fitted to provide site lines for the children and give additional natural light. Acoustic panels were fitted across the ceiling to minimise noise reverberation in the large open vaulted areas.
