What Is A Prefabricated Building?

Prefabricated buildings consist of factory manufactured components which are transported to and then assembled on-site. They differ to modular buildings in that they are generally complete buildings, rather than individual units.

Prefabricated buildings are traditionally fully fitted with all required utilities and ready for immediate use when delivered and connected to pre-prepared mains supplies on-site.  They are constructed in a much shorter time, which means they cost less, are delivered quicker and cause altogether less disruption to your business.

All buildings are manufactured in our ISO-approved, 40,000 sq. ft. workshop, where our expert craftsmen use the latest techniques to ensure optimum efficiency and quality. This off-site method of construction, developed over 45 years in business, can offer multiple benefits for businesses and schools compared to traditional construction methods.

Why Choose A Prefabricated Building From Springfield?

Springfield offer truly bespoke prefabricated buildings: you work with our experienced design and production team to build a prefab building to your exact specification – your building, your way and leaning on our extensive experience if needed.  Building to your unique requirements means you can be confident you will get the exact building you are looking for not something we happen to have in stock that we think ‘might do’.

Our prefabricated buildings in particular have a distinct range of benefits. Primarily, these focus on both speed and cost. The bulk of our prefabricated construction work is completed off-site which drastically cuts the manufacturing time compared with traditional builds. The combination of these efficient production techniques and the minimal on-site construction time means your budget can confidently be adhered to.  The safe and secure environment of our workshop comes with all required the manufacturing facilities on-site and under cover, which means no weather disruption and the absence of any dangerous activity from your site. All take cost and hassle out of the exercise.

Prefabricated buildings are also incredibly flexible. The size, number of levels, finish and interior specification of your prefabricated building are all easily adaptable. You can even add modules at a later date so your building can grow with your company, offering total ease of use and flexibility.

The huge range of finishing options we provide here at Springfield including: cladding, windows, roofing and fascia options, as well as internal options, means you can make both the interior and exterior of your building meet your exact requirements.

Our prefabricated buildings are also environmentally-friendly. Fewer on-site deliveries coupled with off-site manufacturing methods mean we work efficiently and can maintain more sustainable methods of working. The quality of our buildings and their efficient energy consumption also helps to keep costs down during the buildings’ lifetime.

Hiring A Prefabricated Building

We offer a bespoke hiring solution for all of our clients. Choosing from either our current stock or, dependent on the length of term, a new, bespoke building, we accommodate a flexible hiring scheme. We offer two primary types of contracts:

  • a client-based contract where you decide on the contract period, anywhere between three months and five years with a rental fee fixed for the duration
  • an open-ended contract with no fixed length

Either option provides an affordable choice for clients who find themselves on a tight budget or simply see greater benefit in hiring a building rather than buying one outright. Find out more about our hiring option here.
