Why Modular Buildings?

What are Modular Buildings?

Modular Buildings are structures which are planned, designed, fabricated and pre-assembled away from the site at which they will be installed.  Also known as Offsite Construction, the elements of a building are put together in a factory environment, before transportation to a prepared site, where rapid installation takes place, resulting in a robust, quality building.

This method can be used in any construction project, and is particularly well-suited to builds where time or access are limited.

Advantages of Offsite Construction

  • FAST CONSTRUCTION:  The individual elements of the building are constructed offsite, significantly reducing the time required onsite from months to potentially days. Perfect for projects which need to be completed within school holidays, or to avoid disruption to healthcare settings.


  • LESS WASTE AND CLEANER, SAFER CONSTRUCTION:  The individual parts of the building can be precision-engineered in a factory environment to ensure less waste. Ideal for meeting your CSR objectives. The carbon footprint is also significantly lower than a traditional build.


  • LESS DISRUPTION:  Fast construction means a significant reduction in the amount of time onsite, plus fewer vehicle movements to/from site, which in turn results in less noise and disruption for you and your neighbours.
  • FIXED COSTS AND PROJECT TIMESCALES:   Offsite projects are not hampered by expensive delays caused by bad weather or site-based skills shortages, resulting in budgetary and timescale certainty.  Ideal if you are working to a strict budget, or your project has a fixed deadline.


  • GUARANTEED QUALITY STANDARDS:  Each individual element of your construction project is precision-engineered in a controlled factory environment, ensuring strict quality standards are met.


  • ROOM TO GROW:  Offsite construction projects are typically more flexible and can be easily expanded or reconfigured to meet changing organisational requirements.
