Buildings
How do I connect the building to electricity?

All of our buildings are fitted with a consumer unit. A qualified electrician must connect the consumer unit to a mains supply. For telephone and data you should contact your communications supplier.

What is the difference between a portable building and a modular building?

A portable building is a stand alone building which can be delivered and installed for immediate use, these can be stacked where space is tight with access via an external staircase. A modular building is two or more modules which are delivered to the site and craned into position to create larger single or multi-storey buildings.

What type of foundations will my building require?

This will vary depending on the surface where the building will be sited. There are several types of foundations which vary from a hard-standing surface, traditional foundations, or Jackpad ‘temporary’ foundations. One of our representatives will advise you of this once a site inspection has been carried out.

Where can I view one of your buildings?

You are welcome to visit our factory and offices to see units in production, alternatively we can arrange for you to visit one of our buildings currently in use

Delivery
How will my building be delivered?

Our buildings are transported by road on a flat-bed or Hi-Ab wagon and positioned on site either using the Hi-Ab wagon, or by stand-alone crane.

What preparations do I need to make before delivery?

You will need to have suitable foundations or a level hard-standing area to accommodate the building. One of our representatives will advise you on this once a site inspection has been carried out.  Access must be kept clear of obstructions to allow the vehicles to deliver your building

Other
Do I need planning permission?

Yes. All modular buildings require planning permission.  We are able to offer a full turnkey service and undertake this on your behalf.

Will my building comply with Building Regulations?

Yes, all of our buildings comply with building regulations. 

Could you use our existing sub-contractors?

We are willing to work with your contractors on the assumption that they have been properly assessed.

Are you able to act as main contractor?

Yes, we are able to offer a full design and build service.
