Quality new and used

Modular Buildings

A modular building is constructed from prefabricated sections called modules which are manufactured off-site and then transported to, and assembled, onsite – enabling a more efficient construction in comparison to traditional methods.

Our process

Step 01 – Design stage

We work with you to create a design proposal that meets your requirements and then a budget quote. After you have agreed to these, we visit your site to check the area and any access restrictions.

Step 02 – Planning and compliance

The planning application must be applied for and after this process, which usually takes 8 – 12 weeks, a building regulation application needs to be made. You complete this or you can opt for our service to manage it for you.

Step 03 – Groundworks and manufacturing

After planning permission is granted, the onsite team begin preparing foundations, mains services, ducting and drainage while offsite the manufacture begins. Completing both tasks in tandem reduces lead times massively.

Step 04 – Installation

Your building is delivered to your site with the relevant labour and machinery and all internal and external works of the building will be planned and then executed ready for handover to you.

Step 05 – Snagging and handover

Any snagging tasks will be identified and attended to, ensuring the total satisfaction of the client. When these are done, the keys and building certifications will be handed over to the client for them to begin using.

Advantages of modular buildings

Faster construction

Modular buildings are rapidly assembled offsite, whilst the onsite preparation is completed simultaneously, massively reducing production and installation time.


Streamlined manufacturing processes require less labour and use less traditional materials making our modular buildings for sale a budget-friendly choice.

Sustainability and eco Friendly

The construction process generates little waste compared to traditional construction, and eco-friendly practices make prefab modular buildings a greener choice.

Flexibility and customisation

Versatile designs allow for customised, bespoke buildings that meet specific requirements for office space, classrooms, healthcare facilities and more.

Quality and safety

Our buildings are assembled in controlled factory environments where they undergo rigorous quality control measures, ensuring high standards and building code compliance.

Reduced disruptions

Our designs are mainly constructed offsite minimising disruptions caused by weather or other factors and reducing onsite disruptions to your daily operations.

Internal and External Design Options

Modular buildings are often considered temporary structures, but may be around for quite some time, so it’s important they look right as well as meet your specifications. The ideal workspace is vital for your company’s productivity, and we are experts at designing interiors that exceed your expectations.

As one of the UK’s leading modular building companies, our standard buildings are finished in either a resin-based textured paint or plastic-coated architectural steel which are available in a range of different profiles. We offer a wide range of exterior cladding options, including Brick slip cladding, timber cladding and brand-new ‘Clad-ex’.

What are modular buildings?

Modular buildings are innovative structures constructed using modules which are manufactured offsite in controlled factory conditions. Transported to, and assembled, onsite, they create a fully functional building. They offer flexible customisability, speed of installation and cost-effectiveness, making them an excellent alternative to traditional construction methods for various applications, including residential, commercial, educational and healthcare facilities.

Why choose a modular building over a traditional construction?

As modular building manufacturers, we construct your building in less time and for less money. We use fewer resources and labour and provide customisable and energy efficient structures that are also relocatable.

Can I relocate a modular building?

Yes, one of the significant advantages of modular buildings is their mobility. They can be disassembled, transported and reassembled at a new location, offering flexibility for businesses, educational institutions or other temporary facilities.

Are modular buildings customisable?

Absolutely. Modular buildings can be tailored to suit specific needs and preferences. Modular building companies offer custom and bespoke solutions, allowing clients to choose from a variety of designs, layouts and finishes to meet their requirements and achieve their desired aesthetics.

Can I change the internal layout later on?

Yes, the internal layout of modular buildings can be modified after installation. The adaptable nature of modular construction allows for easy reconfiguration and expansion as needs evolve or change over time.

Do modular buildings need planning permission?

In most cases, modular buildings do require planning permission, just like traditional constructions. However, some regulations vary according to location, size and intended use so it’s sensible to consult with a modular building company or the local authorities to find out what applications and regulations you need to adhere to.

How long does it take to construct a modular building?

The time it takes to construct modular buildings depends on various factors such as the size, location and amount of modification needed. Get in touch with one of our expert team members to discuss lead times and for your obligation-free quote.

Are modular buildings energy-efficient?

Yes, modular buildings can be designed to be energy-efficient. They can incorporate various energy-conserving building techniques such as:

– better insulation,
– energy-saving materials,
– renewable energy systems,
all of which can help to reduce energy consumption and operating costs.

Do modular buildings comply with building codes and regulations?

Yes, modular buildings need to comply with building codes and regulations – they should meet all the same standards as traditionally constructed buildings to ensure safety and compliance with legal requirements. All the modules are manufactured under strict quality control.
