We understand how important it is to create buildings that inspire the next generation to reach their potential - buildings which are also an invaluable community resource.

Our dedicated education teams work collaboratively with schools, LEAs, colleges, and universities to help deliver their vision, within budget constraints and to the most challenging programmes. McAvoy offers a complete range of ‘best in class’ modular solutions for education.

McAvoy is widely acknowledged as a UK and Ireland go-to provider for semi-permanent and permanent education accommodation. In the last 5 years we have delivered more than 20,000 new school places, utilising fast-track, offsite techniques to reduce lead times by up to half and helping educational planners meet the increasing demand for new schools, extensions and classrooms across the UK and Ireland.

With a brand-new fleet of sustainable modular buildings, McAvoy can respond quickly and deliver temporary accommodation to you when you need it most. We offer a range of high-quality, adaptable modular solutions for rental & sale. Where funding is an issue, temporary modular solutions can prove to be the best and most cost-effective solution.

We specialise in turnkey design and build solutions for the education sector, managing projects from conception, through design to completion, as principal contractor. Our volumetric modular solutions represent a time-efficient, quality controlled and environmentally sound method of construction.

Committed to circular construction

McAvoy employs a circular construction approach to its design, planning and manufacturing processes. This philosophy enables us to repurpose temporary buildings where appropriate and drives our sharp focus on recycling materials where possible to reach zero waste to landfill.
