Green school modules welcome visitors to Worfelden Elementary School in the southern Hessian district of Groß-Gerau, Germany. The interim solution appears cheerful and lively: Over the next three years, 190 students will be taught here.
Green is not only the color of the exterior design. Symbolically, the color represents the concept of the elementary school, which was constructed as a single-story modular building by Adapteo, covering an area of 1,850 square meters. The decision for a modular and adaptable solution is also a decision for the highest possible sustainability of a construction project – in this case, for a circular economy system. At the end of the agreed rental period, Adapteo will completely dismantle the entire building complex. The modules can then continue to be used as school buildings, daycares, or even as office or administrative buildings. In this way, the Neu-Isenburg-based company contributes to the cost-effectiveness and sustainability of temporarily used building solutions.

Comfortable Atmosphere for the Interim School

In 2018, Worfelden planned a two-story new building for the elementary school. Construction of the all-day school is set to begin in mid-2023. Since February 2023, the adaptable school, which provides suitable facilities for students until they move into the new building, has been in use. The former community soccer field served as the construction site. The conditions for a good learning atmosphere without the character of a construction site became a reality within a few months.

Complete functionality of a School

The modular building meets all the requirements of the school community for school operations and all-day care. Students, teachers, and school staff “live” in a fully equipped school building with rooms for intensive and support classes, a library, dining area, computer and music rooms, school administration with offices, a reception area, meeting room, pantry, a room for school social work, and for the caretaker. The two main buildings are complemented by a pavilion for meal distribution and a standalone play equipment container. Adapteo also fulfils the client’s special requests beyond the standard portfolio. The school was equipped with acoustic ceilings, sun protection blinds, and ramps to ensure accessibility. As a visual highlight, the decision-makers chose to have the container facility covered with colored foil.

Responsible decisions for Sustainability

The contract awarded by the municipal administration to Adapteo included foundation work, earthworks, drainage, electrical work, and utility supply. At the end of the agreed rental period, the entire building complex will be completely dismantled. The modules that are removed without residue will then be reused as school buildings, daycares, or even office or administrative buildings. With the circular economy system, Adapteo contributes to the cost-effectiveness and sustainability of temporarily used building solutions.

This is how we build adaptable and sustainable societies.
