Green Unit's eco-classrooms are beautiful spaces that help students, educators, and staff feel calm, more inspired, and happier.
Commission a series of self-contained ARC eco-classrooms or a new eco-building to an existing educational facility with a connecting glazed link, perfect for any school, college or university. The ARC is a calm and inspiring space which is highly conducive to learning.
Whether you are looking for a single eco-classroom or an entire modular school, our unique ARC eco-buildings can be commissioned as a one-off classroom unit, or a series of self-contained buildings. ARC buildings can also integrate with an existing education facility using a connecting glazed link.
Highly sustainable ARC buildings are modular and are manufactured offsite in Oxfordshire and delivered to your school, college, university, or nursery as a virtually complete building. This means that health and safety risks and disruption associated with long-term building works are kept to an absolute minimum.
The curved design of ARC buildings creates a calm and inspiring space which is highly conducive to learning and development.

Modular eco-building - designed bespoke
With our unique modular structure at the core, we design and build each ARC building bespoke to the requirements of your educational facility. We work with each client to design spaces that suit the growing needs of their school, nursey, college, or university.
During a design consultation we will discuss different approaches, such as a traditional classroom layout or a more agile learning studio with zones for different activities. We’ll also discuss requirements for storage (built-in or standalone), integration of different spaces including WCs and breakout areas, smart systems for temperature and air quality control, the option for renewables, as well as windows, blinds, gates, locks, CCTV and other appliances.
We can also work alongside specialist classroom and school furniture designers on the internal fit-out.
A turnkey modular solution for your educational facility
We provide a complete, turnkey service, from design through to delivery of your ARC building.
The cost of a Green Unit ARC includes a pre-assembled modular classroom/building, WCs, floor and wall finishes, lighting, heating and extraction, estimate of likely haulage and lifting costs (subject to site visit), likely foundations costs based on typical ground conditions and building regulation costs.
With their modular design, Green Unit ARC buildings have fixed widths and can be built to any length. The ARC II (our wider building) is highly suited to classrooms and other learning environments – it has a fixed internal floor width of 6.4m and an exterior width of 7.9m. We also have a smaller width of building - the ARC I – with a fixed internal floor width of 4m and an exterior width of 5.5m.
Year-round optimum temperature, whatever the weather
Unlike many self-contained outbuildings, the ARC with its heating options (including underfloor, in-wall, and ducted heating and ventilation systems) offers year-round comfort for optimum working and learning environments.
Pollen-filtered air systems can also be included to create a cleaner and healthier environment for students and staff which promotes productivity and inspires creativity.
