What is the true potential of modular construction?

Modular construction is something that has seen a surge in popularity in recent years. There is one simple reason why – many people are realising the true potential of modular construction.

Gone are the days of uniform, dismal portable buildings with leaking roofs and no heating. Instead, modular buildings of today are bespoke, sustainable and cost-effective, giving you the same quality building that a traditional building can offer.


With many budgets under pressure, having the building that you want is often something that feels impossible. But using modular construction will save money without compromising on quality.



Modular buildings are constructed using efficient and streamlined production and delivery processes. Detailed coordination of a project significantly reduces mistakes, price variances and material waste.


Modular buildings take up to 50% less time to construct compared to their traditional bricks and mortar counterparts. Faster construction means faster return on investment, so for whatever purpose you are using your building for, you can start trading sooner and increase the rate of revenue being generated.


Modular buildings can be up to 35% cheaper. Requiring less labour and less materials, requires less money. Through the use of factory construction methods in an off-site location, the total cost of labour is 70% less compared to traditional construction projects.


Modular construction is a sustainable and environmentally friendly construction process that uses repurposed materials. Waste going to landfill sites is significantly reduced – up to 50% less waste  is produced when using offsite construction methods. Unused materials can be reused for other projects, significantly reducing the amount of construction waste that ends up in landfill sites each year.




UK weather can be very unpredictable at the best of times. The offsite indoor construction process not only speeds up construction, but allows for construction to continue whatever the weather.


Modular buildings can be disassembled, relocated and reassembled and added to, depending on your requirements. Reusing your modular building will greatly reduce your carbon footprint as well!


Modular buildings can incorporate a variety of building materials and environmentally features that are kind to the planet. The environmental impact of modular construction is far smaller than traditional construction. By simply reducing transportation of materials, contractors and labourers to and from the building site, carbon emissions are reduced. Minimal site disturbance means less trees cut down, less natural elements and species are disturbed and less waste is created.
