A unique building solution - In 1986 we developed Homelodge – a practical, cost-effective and quick alternative that provides you with a high quality addition to your school or organisation. Designed to be installed as a separate building anywhere, a Homelodge is an independent space versatile enough to suit any application, from a single classroom to a multi classrom complex or a Village/Church hall, cafe or a sports pavilion. We provide a complete service from start to finish, constructing most Lodges within weeks (as opposed to months that a traditional masonry build can take) – at a fixed price agreed before any work commences leaving you with a building that is guaranteed to give you many years of trouble-free use.
Horley Infant School needed to create purpose built accommodation for a playgroup which has recently expanded onto our school site. Homelodge fitted our requirements and were able to have the flexibility which fitted our needs, style, timescale and cost. We had pre-requisites which Homelodge were happy to work with and made the construction a very fluent transition to a fully working building. All workmen, builders and deliveries were very friendly and sympathetic to our school timetable and infact provided numerous opportunities to incorporate the construction of the building into the curriculum.
The resulting pre-school accommodation has become an asset to our school, catering for all their needs with a large hall, toilets and office accommodation. All facilities (electricity, heating, drainage etc) fulfilled the requirements meeting all pre-school standards, making our playgroup building an effortless expansion to our school.
