Award-Winning Timber Frame Buildings From TG Escapes

TG Escapes provide bespoke, net-zero buildings quickly and cost-effectively by utilising modern methods of construction. Our flexible modular approach and sturdy timber frames allow us to build everything from single classrooms to larger blocks, and dedicated spaces such as sports pavilions, canteens, studios, SEND and SEMH provision.

We offer a turnkey approach to clients across the UK, designing, manufacturing, installing and finishing each building. Through our streamlined, cost-effective process we have produced hundreds of bright, healthy buildings for schools offering inspirational learning environments, with onsite work completed in as little as 6 weeks.

Everything starts with a free site survey and bespoke design process, after which we will provide a comprehensive fixed price covering every aspect of a new school building.

We have established ourselves within the education sector, offering several clear benefits to schools:

  • Stunning Bespoke Designs: Our in-house team of architects and designers is able to produce wholly bespoke designs to meet a school's specific needs. Whether it be a specialist classroom tailored to SEND students or a larger two-storey building with many classrooms, bathrooms, changing rooms and more, our system allows us to build it all. Our buildings are aesthetically beautiful and designed to blend seamlessly with existing structures and with natural surroundings. They can feature a variety of finishes from natural timber to brick or render.
  • Cost-Effective: Modern methods of construction offer cost savings at every stage, which are further enhanced by our in-house manufacturing and turnkey service. Streamlined off-site construction minimises waste, and quick onsite installation minimises labour. Our buildings equal or better the performance of a traditional brick and mortar build at reliably lower prices.
  • Quick Installation: We deliver buildings to a school site as panels, ready for quick assembly by our team. For smaller projects, our time onsite can be as little as 6 weeks, minimising any disruption to a school. Our team is experienced in educational settings, maintaining a friendly, professional tone throughout.
  • Biophilic Principles: TG Escapes has long been a proponent of biophilic design principles, emphasising a connection to nature with each of our buildings. We incorporate natural light, views of nature, physical access to the outdoors and advanced ventilation systems, all of which have a profound impact on stress, mental health, and even exam performance. We create positive environments that uplift students and staff.
  • Net-Zero in Every Building: Through a combination of energy-efficient materials, a fabric first approach, additions like solar panels and green roofs, advanced ventilation technology and expert design, we achieve net-zero in operation as standard and can also certify our buildings as lifetime net-zero if required.
  • Built For Long-Term Performance: The oldest buildings on the planet were built using timber so we know it can last with appropriate maintenance. Our permanent buildings satisfy or exceed all regulatory compliance and we are certified by the Structural Timber Association. With over 800 buildings UK wide we have many examples to show how our buildings perform within a busy school environment.
  • Turnkey Service: We cover everything from the initial design to the final handover of keys, for a single upfront price. This includes site preparation, all foundations, planning permission and service connections. Throughout the project, you will have a clear point of contact with our friendly team who will manage the project from start to finish.

TG Escapes have produced hundreds of school buildings including SEND facilities, classroom blocks, dining halls and drama studios. Our biophilic approach ensures that these spaces are full of natural light and have easy access to the outdoors. The impact on students is pronounced, with a calming effect that helps to reduce stress and increase focus. We are particularly active within the SEND and SEMH fields, producing a range of specially designed spaces intended to benefit students with diverse needs.

We are proud to have been recognised by several prestigious bodies, winning “Project of the Year” and “Public Sector Innovator of the Year” at the 2023 Modern Methods of Construction Awards, alongside “Contractor of the Year” at the 2021 Education Estates Awards. We are dedicated to offering an unparalleled service to our education clients, with an average score of 4.9 out of 5 from over 187 customer reviews.

Working with TG Escapes is a simple process that starts with a complimentary site visit and a bespoke design. From small classrooms to larger buildings, ranging in price from £300k to over £6m, our team designs and installs beautiful, sustainable, and positive spaces for all educational needs.

"TG Escapes responded quickly to any questions or concerns we raised with them from the design stage to completion. They worked with us to ensure that the school could continue to operate safely whilst they were on site. Any issues that were raised with the site team were immediately addressed and they followed our school risk assessment. They made the experience far less stressful than we had anticipated. The project was delivered ahead of time to a high standard." Mrs Gill Farmer, Trust Business Manager
