The popularity of modular buildings is increasing not only because of their versatility and cost effectiveness but also because they are not just used as temporary structures anymore. High quality building materials and variety of attractive finishes means they are increasingly used as permanent and semi-permanent structures. A modular building is defined as a temporary structure erected as an interim to aid the construction of a permanent building. Its function is to act as accommodation for a brief period before being dismantled and re-located once building work has finished. However, today’s modular buildings are solid enough to be considered permanent structures in themselves.
Here are the benefits of choosing a modular building to hire or buy.
Modular buildings come in a variety of sizes, configurations and finishes. They can be easily adapted for a specific purpose and additional rooms such as kitchens, shower rooms and toilets can be incorporated.
Modular buildings can be used for a variety of purposes such as:
- Music Studios
- Office Suites
- Meeting Rooms
- Storage Units
They can be as basic or as comfortable as you wish. Heating and air conditioning units and even wooden exterior cladding make them a warm and pleasant environment throughout the year. They can also be linked together and stacked to create a larger building if needed.
If security is an issue, anti-vandal modular cabins come with reinforced steel walls, interior shutters and advanced locking systems to deter intruders.
Modular buildings are quick and easy to erect. Shorter construction time and limited site disruption means you’ll save time and money compared to building a conventional, permanent structure.
Materials and labour costs are greatly reduced and there is less material wastage. Modular buildings are renewable so they also have less impact on the environment.
If cost and sustainability are an issue then a refurbished modular cabin is an ideal choice. Refurbished modular cabins are adapted to a very high standard under factory conditions. A complete overhaul including new electrics, flooring, ceiling and walls means you won’t be able to tell the difference between refurbished and brand new.
A refurbished modular cabin can be adapted to any industry setting and can have as many extras added as a brand new building but at a far more competitive price.
It can also be painted to your specifications and windows and doors fitted to suit your requirements.
