Modular buildings are fast becoming the construction method of choice across the UK. More and more people are looking to build modular for the ultimate in fast, cost effective and efficient construction. The modular building process is revolutionising the way that the world builds – here are our top 10 benefits of modular construction:

1: Speed of build

Modular building projects can be completed 30-50% quicker than traditional construction methods. By choosing to build modular, the indoor construction process can take place alongside site and foundations work and there’s no need to worry about weather delays.

2: Off-site construction

Modular buildings are constructed off-site in modules and are then brought to your site in flat-packed panels, ready to build. Building off-site is transforming the construction process for businesses, schools and individuals, ensuring better construction quality management and less disruption.

3: Minimal impact on your business

The beauty of building modular is that it removes 80% of the construction activity away from the actual site location – so you can keep your school or business running smoothly with minimal impact and disruption.

4: Eco-friendly materials

Modular buildings are kind to the environment – they are built with eco-friendly building materials and are leading the market with the use of recycled materials. The off-site construction process ensures less waste, too. One of the benefits of modular construction is that you can be sure that you are investing in a sustainable construction process from start to finish.

5: Cost-effective

Modular constructions are very cost-effective, with flexible payment options available and a shorter construction time. The design service is often included too so you don’t need to worry about architect costs on top of building expense.

6: Attractive design

Thanks to innovative and practical design, using the best quality sustainable building materials, modular constructions are an extremely attractive addition to your school, business or residential property.

7: Bespoke options available

One of the main advantages of building modular is the bespoke design, which means that each building is tailored to your needs. Modular buildings can be custom-made to fit with your exact space and budget requirements.

8: Flexibility of use

Thanks to the bespoke design, modular buildings are extremely flexible. Whether you need extra space for a garden room, office, studio, school classroom or music room, modular buildings can meet your requirements with the perfect flexible extra space. As shown by our case studies, many clients use modular buildings for more than one purpose and they can be designed accordingly.

9: High quality construction

The nature of indoor construction means that quality and safety is guaranteed and the building materials are protected from moisture and weather during the construction process.

10: Durable materials

Modular buildings are constructed with the most durable building materials to ensure that your modular construction is built to last. The materials used for internal walls improve sound insulation and fire-proofing, and modular building structures are extremely airtight which ensures their energy-efficiency.

By choosing to build modular, you’ll benefit from a fast, cost-effective and efficient process with environmentally friendly materials and durability built in. Green Modular buildings are all custom-made and approached with eco-friendly, sustainable design at the core.
