Comparing modern modular construction with traditional construction is an important part of your planning process. Your choice of construction method will have a direct impact on your programme time and certainty. To help you make an informed decision, here’s our overview of modular construction in comparison with traditional construction.

  1. Rapid delivery, with no compromise on quality

    Modular buildings equal the durability and quality of permanent buildings, being built to the latest building regulations and planning requirements. The key advantage of modular construction is the significant time saving.

    For example, a completely new modular office building will typically be ready for occupation up to 50% faster than a traditionally constructed building.

  2. Emergency solutions available in hours

    The timeframe for a hired building from a leading manufacturer such as Portakabin is even shorter, for example our emergency buildings solution can be with you in hours.

Complete transparency

You’ll benefit from greater time and cost certainty with modular building systems. That’s because off-site construction isn’t constrained in the same way as site-based construction by skills shortages and low labour productivity. Our standardised processes also enable us to provide timely and accurate project data from the outset. 

The buildings from Portakabin fulfilled all our expectations and provided the ideal environment for the team working on this important project.
