The Myths of Modular Buildings

The Myths of Modular Buildings

Long gone are the days of dull, grey and leaking prefabricated modular buildings – especially when you work with Springfield. Unfortunately, there are still plenty of myths surrounding modular buildings, that they are unsafe and not built to last, that they all look the same and that they aren’t environmentally friendly. In short, these myths couldn’t be further from the truth.

Myth 1: Modular buildings aren’t safe or built to last

Modular buildings follow the same set of regulations as traditional construction and must, therefore, meet the same standards of quality. Simply put, this means they are not only safe, but they are built to last. Safety is a factor we take extremely seriously - especially as we build a substantial amount of modular buildings for the education sector.

Here at Springfield, we pride ourselves our production process. All of our modular buildings are made in the UK using high-quality materials and production methods that ensure excellent quality modular builds at exceptional value. They aren’t temporary at all, instead, providing permanent space solutions.

Myth 2: All modular buildings look the same

Here at Springfield, we pride ourselves on our flexible design. This means you can choose the building finish to suit your requirements, whether that’s a classroom, a sports complex or something a little more commercial.

Choose a finish to make a statement, or work towards making your modular building seamlessly blend into your existing building. The possibilities are almost endless, and we believe we offer the most flexible service on the market from simplest portable and temporary buildings to the most individual and bespoke designs. Find out more about our building finishes by getting in touch and discussing your needs with a member of the team.

Myth 3: Modular buildings aren’t environmentally friendly

Contrary to popular belief about modular buildings, our buildings are manufactured to last, and our building process means that there is less waste than with traditional building methods. Because all of our modular buildings are designed, sourced and made in the UK, there’s less impact on the environment, something we’re extremely proud of at Springfield.
