In a place where young minds are moulded it’s important to have an environment that is inspiring and motivating. At TG Escapes, we design innovative modular eco-classrooms and buildings that encourage environmental citizenship, outdoor learning and educational play, and help reconnect students with nature.
TG Escapes use modern methods of construction, traditional materials and sophisticated technology, to create standalone spaces that are net-zero in operation. We have provided over 800 timber frame buildings UK wide and were awarded Contractor of the Year at the 2021 Education Estates Awards.
Offsite timber frame construction minimises disruption, cost and risk and a fully inclusive design and build service means projects are easy to manage with customers rating us 4.9 out of 5 based on 170 reviews. The use of biophilic design principles, natural materials, easy access to the outdoors and natural light make the buildings particularly well suited to education settings.
The innovative bespoke architect designed system provides buildings to suit most locations and uses, in a variety of finishes including timber, composite cladding or render in a range of colours, and brick slips.
We offer a complete design and build service.
The buildings are aesthetically pleasing, ergonomic and highly practical with an A+ energy rating and designed to last 60 years or more with appropriate maintenance.
Flexible modular school buildings designed for your space can grow as you do, with features like sun pipes, living sedum roofs, solar PV and water systems as well as AA rated cooling & heating. Our eco-friendly modular classrooms help staff promote environmental citizenship amongst pupils and the wider community.
Our in house architects design exactly what you need, be it an eco-classroom, staff room, school hall, studio sports pavilion or library. We talk to your staff and pupils to find out their ideas and needs, then create a stunning and sustainable building that fits into your space and budget. Our educational specialist team has years of experience and will design a stimulating environment that can be used for learning alongside recreational and social activities.

“The team at TG Escapes showed us that a tight budget doesn’t mean that you can’t create a fantastic building. It’s clear that they have years of experience delivering a full service, we didn’t even need to worry about the paperwork.”
