Need space solutions? Marathon has been providing quality education space solutions to schools across Australia for over 15 years. It’s so important in the education industry, that by using off-site technology, open construction sites are eliminated while school is in session. Students and teachers are safer and can compete with less disruption.
Our extended experience in refining design and practical advantages spans a wide variety of areas, including; Administration offices, Amenities, Science and specialist rooms, Libraries, Covered outdoor learning areas, Multipurpose rooms, Canteens and eating areas.
Marathon’s permanent modular construction offers public, private, and charter schools what other construction methods cannot: accelerated project timelines, more economical pricing, and less disruption. Permanent modular schools and classrooms are indistinguishable and can be constructed to any architectural and customer specifications.
We design and build schools of all types and sizes – virtually any size permanent school can be built, installed, and ready for occupancy, some in as little as 90 days. Our offering of Learning spaces, Amenities Buildings, Office/Admin Buildings and COLA’s mean that we can design and construct the ‘Whole Package’ for new schools or replacements for existing facilities.
Flexibility in classrooms is very important for School Children to better adapt to principles of particular lessons. Marathon Modular understands there are various needs and concepts required to ensure stimulation of learning in Classrooms. Choice of Materials in the design stage is endless, and can be exact to materials used in traditional site construction. Sophistication in layout and design options provide a permanent solution when building modular.
Marathon Modular has designed and constructed a modular building for one of the schools in my electorate. It’s a quality building and very much a positive addition to our environment. If the population begins to fall in 20 years, which can happen, this building can be moved to be used in another growth area. It’s very smart use of the education dollar.

It has been a pleasure from the outset, to deal with Jonathan and Marathon Group in general. All aspects of the project have been handled with professionalism and courtesy. Marathon Group’s attention to detail, cooperation with our School Security Unit, their contractor Boston Security and the executive staff at Macarthur Girls High, and your accommodation of the School’s unique security issues, has been exemplary and very much appreciated. The school is very happy with the project experience, and the finished product has fulfilled their expectations and in many ways exceeded them. I look forward to working with you again in the near future.

Marathon Modular completed the construction of our new Junior School Building. This building consisted of 4 classrooms, a breakout space and offices. Throughout the construction and pre-construction phase Marathon: · assisted us in understanding restrictions and options available to us the client in regard to using the modular form of construction · were responsive to client design changes during their workshop process · management communicated effectively with regard to the delivery and installation of the final project · were co-operative with regard to enabling “school contractors” to undertake works concurrently with the installation of the modular building assisting in overall program. We are delighted with the final product. It is a versatile and flexible learning space.

Marathon Modular were referred to us by another school. We had a difficult site and a time constrained brief. Jonathan was particularly helpful with helping us find a solution that met our needs, both design and time wise and our budget. Marathon Modular were pleasant to deal with in a relaxed and professional way from the time we first met, till the end of the project.
One of the things we like best about our new modular building is how it integrates with the rest of the school. Jonathan helped us through some design concepts to ensure that we were delivered a building that truly met our expectations. We are planning our next project already!
Beth Ellerman – Business Manager, Illawarra Christian School
Marathon were given a very tight time frame in which to supply a building for our school. Their team worked long days to ensure that students could use the facility on the first day of school. Their workmanship is of a very high standard. They are keen to consult and ensure that we are satisfied with the final product. Marathon are able to provide design ideas if required. I would have no hesitation in recommending Marathon.

I am pleased to provide this testimonial for Marathon Modular who recently installed 4 modular classrooms at Canberra Grammar School.
The job was not straightforward as the 2 buildings had to be matched to an existing building on 2 different levels on a sloping site, abutting an existing building on one side and with very little clearance on the other. To further complicate matters, there was very restricted access for the large crane required.
Marathon completed the job with minimum fuss and within the programmed time and budget. I could not recommend them more highly.
Mike Illiff-Business Manager, Canberra Grammar School
Marathon were engaged by Calrossy Anglican School (CAS) to construct and supply a group of buildings to serve the needs of our early Primary Years of 1 and 2. The follow-up service of post construction and/or maintenance issues following the install has been fantastic. CAS operational and management staff would not hesitate in recommending Marathon as a service fit for the development of educational facilities.
Hugh Castleden-Calrossy Anglican School
This is the first time that the Catholic Schools Office (Diocese of Broken Bay) have engaged Marathon Modular Group for the supply and installation of modular learning spaces and a(COLA). This project was delivered in a very “tight” time frame from our first site meeting to the delivery of the modular buildings. Marathon Modular excelled in meeting this time frame which required careful and safe management of the site. The Diocese were kept well informed of all aspects of the installation of the buildings through the excellent communication provided – the success of this project is attributed largely to Marathons understanding of the Diocese’ expectations and needs. The high quality of the buildings needs to be mentioned also as a contributing factor to the success of the project. It is with great pleasure that we recommend Marathon Modular Group for their design, construction and delivery capabilities of modular buildings.
John Menday-Senior Facilities Officer, Catholic Schools Office
Marathon caused very little disturbance to the school, they moved in a fast and efficient manner and left the site clean and tidy at all times. The communication, cooperation and meeting of deadlines was the priority of Marathon throughout the project and our finished result is outstanding.
