Modular buildings have been around since the 1970’s, however, in recent years they have become an increasingly popular choice for those looking for an innovative and more cost-effective solution to remedy their accommodation requirements.
As well as becoming a prominent method of construction here in the UK, new modular buildings are also proving popular globally, particularly in the USA, Scandinavia and Japan.
But what has given rise to this sudden increase in modular buildings?
Below we’ve listed our top 5 reasons as to why modular buildings are proving to be so popular and why you should choose one for your next construction.
New modular buildings are constructed using materials that are very durable, ensuring that your modular construction is built to last.
For example, when you purchase a TF Jackson modular building, it will be constructed using composite steel wall panels and feature a durable water-resistant floor, and insulated aluminum doors.
As well as the construction materials proving durable, they are also safer than those used in many traditional buildings, given the lack of flammable materials that are used during the manufacturing process.
The modular building manufacturing process means that all buildings are built off-site. This not only means your actual site can remain relatively undisturbed, but it also reduces the impact on your home or business that traditional construction methods would usually inevitably impose, such as traffic congestion, and the destruction of land by heavy machinery and materials.
As well as the above, modular buildings are usually constructed in an indoor environment
This means it’s easier to ensure high-build quality as the building is protected from moisture and the weather during the construction process.
Time is always of the essence when it comes to construction.
One of the major benefits of new modular buildings is the speed at which they can be built and delivered to a site of your choosing.
By opting to go modular, your main building can be constructed alongside the groundwork on which your new modular building will sit, dramatically reducing the amount of time spent on the onsite development.
The prefabricated design, also ensures that your construction won’t suffer any delays as a result of adverse weather.
Saving money is something that can prove difficult to do when undertaking a construction project.
However, modular buildings have a range of cost-effective benefits which can help drive down the overall cost.
As we’ve already mentioned, the fact that the structure is prefabricated, and then delivered means that there are no weather delays during the build itself, this enables you to save money on labour costs.
Additionally, material costs are kept low, as each modular building only uses exact amounts of materials, meaning you’re not left paying for materials that go unused.
Modular buildings are both relocatable and have a degree of flexibility in how they are used, which adds to their cost-effectiveness
The portable and durable characteristics of modular buildings means that they are highly versatile and can meet the requirements of any industry whether it be for permanent or temporary use.
They come in a range of sizes and our new modular building solutions here at TF Jackson, range from innovative single units through to 2, 6, 8, 10 and 11 bay modular buildings, meaning you can provide accommodation solutions for your business, no matter the size.
