MODULAR BUILDINGS

Careful planning and preparation are essential

Modular (or Volumetric) building is fast becoming one of the most popular forms or modern building especially across due the Education, Commercial and a lot of Residential Sectors. This is due to the simplicity and speed of construction which leads to minimal business impact in comparison to some more traditional building methods, also with the materials used they look modern and contemporary, whilst greatly reducing their Carbon footprint. As the buildings are pre-fabricated up to 80% of the construction is completed offsite meaning the buildings can be completed in around a 6–8-week timescale. The exterior building and the interior work can be completed at the same time, and there are no weather delays as no concrete or other bonding materials are used in construction so more potential downtime is avoided.

However careful preparation and well organised planning are required with the onsite groundwork preparation to enable the modular building can be easily constructed with no delays once it is delivered to site. With this in mind careful planning and preparation are essential, and engaging with a knowledgeable Groundwork Contractor is essential in a modular building project for many reasons. From issues such as excavation to set land and road levels, choosing between different piling methods (Auger Piling, Flight Piing, Strip footing etc..) to ensure the site is structurally safe, right up to to supplying water, electric, gas and everything else needed to make the site run effectively and productively.

TESTIMONIAL

“TG Escapes install timber frame modular buildings, predominantly in the education sector. Due to the scope and scale of some of our larger projects we decided we needed to partner with a larger groundworks contractor who could fulfil our requirements. We trialled a number of companies and found that Blackoak could deliver on price and quality and uphold the company’s reputation and high standards. Chris is great to deal with and always happy to go the extra mile to make sure a project runs smoothly for all concerned.”
