The total area of the new extension is almost 1442 square meters, and the building is located on the site of the school’s existing basketball court.
The new extension of the school is a modular building. And the construction of prefabricated modules, contrary to the opinion of most, has no restrictions in design and construction. The main advantages of a modular house are quick installation, energy efficiency and quality, as each module is manufactured and built industrially in a factory that is subject to all industry standards. This is a very important factor in modern construction, the building will be highly energy efficient.
