FAQ

What is the difference between building modular and traditional building methods?

  • Modular units are built on a steel engineered chassis (or erected on a concrete slab) using 40mm injected polyurethane panels, offering the same comfort, insulation and acoustic qualities as traditional buildings. The buildings either arrive fully pre-assembled on site, without the need for a building crew, or are speedily erected on a concrete slab by a highly skilled erection crew. Mobiles (movable) can be relocated effortlessly using a flatbed truck and transported to the next location. Site-erected modular buildings can be disassembled as quickly as they were erected, and repurposed on another site.

Why should I opt for modular instead of traditional building methods? What are the benefits?

  • Reduced cost in comparison with traditional building methods
  • Buildings arrive fully assembled on site (mobiles only)
  • Fully movable (mobiles only)
  • No building crew on site (mobiles only)
  • Can be disassembled speedily and repurposed (site erect only)
  • Offering the same insulation and acoustic qualities as traditional building methods
  • Low maintenance costs
  • Ideal option in the case of time-constraints or tight project deadlines
  • Fully customisable and flexible to suit your needs

What is the expected lifespan of your buildings?

  • The expected lifespan of modular buildings is estimated at around 10 –15 years depending on usage. The type of building method is also relevant, with site-erected buildings having a longer lifespan than mobiles (movable buildings). In practice however, clients have often seen modular buildings last up to 40 years without issues.
