How Modular Buildings Can Save You Money

Construction is one of the largest sectors in the world, and significant changes in the way they work can have major repercussions on the global economy. Modular buildings have increased in both quality and technologically led construction methods which are leading to increasing investor interest. 

However, one of the biggest benefits to the buyer is the growing cost-effective contribution evolving from modular development in both initial cost and ongoing maintenance. Modular building has always offered the benefits of a traditional build at a fraction of the cost and time however the gap is widening, driven by the rapid creativity in the industry.  

Here are some of the ways modular buildings can save you money, not only in original acquisition cost but additionally in ongoing upkeep & maintenance.  

Portability 

A modular building can be moved wherever needed. Accordingly, if the space is not needed at one location it can be moved to another location within 24 hours for immediate use. The cost saving of that flexibility is immense. 

Decreased Downtime 

Downtime is a major issue for most companies, every second that the site is not operational, the company is losing money. Modular construction can dramatically minimise the impact and in some cases eliminate it altogether. Construction speed is clearly so much faster, on-site installation is measured in days even for multi-storey construction and with the added benefit of very little disruption to the running of the business. 

Less Clean Up 

The off-site construction results in less on-site disruption and mess to clear up with the obvious saving in time & money expended in clear up.  

Reduced Project Times 

With modular construction, the structure is built in our factory at the same time as the groundwork, landscaping and site preparation is carried out. Consequently, both activities can be carried out simultaneously and shorten project times considerably when measured against weather-dependent traditional builds.  

Less Material Waste 

Building in our factory environment means waste materials will be used for future projects or recycled. The wasted cost of multiple visits to the site of both tradesmen and materials is avoided completely – a further saving. Additionally, buildings can be re-configured to fulfil a different purpose rather than replaced. We have a fleet of pre-used buildings which can be re-configured to meet client demands whatever their requirements.  

Standardisation 

Our ISO 9001 standard certification ensures that all our buildings meet the same standards and codes. This guarantees the highest quality for every one of our units. This process is easier to achieve in a custom-built factory designed specifically to manufacture modular buildings. The construction process is automated, using the best materials for the job and carried out by skilled, time-served craftsmen in a factory setting.  

Design Versatility 

At the time of your enquiry, you will be assigned a project manager, who stay with you from start to finish of the project. During this time, they will discuss options with you, find out exactly what you want from your building and guarantee that you are happy with the finished product. They will also make sure you take full advantage of the massive range of building finishes to choose from both inside & out. This includes everything from décor, lighting, flooring, room sizes, window shape and size, and external and internal colours. Your building, your choice, our pleasure. 

Turnkey Provider 

While your project manager helps with the design of your building, they will also help with the essentials you may not have been aware of. We can provide the full package, including planning permission. We take responsibility for all aspects of the build including the organising of landscaping, groundworks, utilities, and anything else that crops up, so you don’t have to. 

Safety 

Another consideration of modular construction is less risk of accidents. The automated factory setting removes many sources of potential for danger, additionally, the reduced on-site activity is clearly an additional factor in the reduction in hazards. We are particularly conscious of safety issues when working with education facilities, in the knowledge that construction and children are never a good mix. Consequently, our education installations are, wherever possible, scheduled during school holidays and the children off-site.  

Weather Conditions 

Another benefit of factory production is that work doesn’t have to stop when there are poor weather conditions. Work can continue as usual, meaning no increases in project time or inflated costs.  

We may be biased, but we think that the above provides a persuasive case for considering Modular whatever you need space for. When you add in the environmentally friendly and energy-efficient aspects of our buildings it really does become an obvious and compelling choice.
