Installation Of A Modular Building With Video

High specification build in just 6 weeks – Six-week timelapse video

How long does it take to construct a modular building? Watch our time-lapse video documenting onsite construction of a 180 sqm modular building in Hampshire, England to see the answer.

The beauty of modular construction is that the majority of the build and fit-out can take place offsite, with the semi-complete building being craned into position towards the end of the process which minimises disruption, costs and total construction time.

This build, with an approximate budget of £250k, took just 6 weeks to complete. Using pre-owned frames which were redesigned by our structural engineer, with extra steel to strengthen the load-bearing capabilities for the FSC-certified timber truss roof and clay roof tiles this building also met the customer’s requirement for sustainability and our company ethos of “reduce, recycle, reuse”. A separate porch entrance was added using lightweight faux stone blocks, and the external finish included brick slips to blend with the surrounding buildings.

Here’s the finished building – the camera had to be moved in order to get the road added – which is why you don’t actually see this at the end of the video, unfortunately. Next time, we’ll put the camera in a different place!


If you need a modular building for your school, expand quickly with a portable office or bring in new customers via a sales and marketing suite get in touch to speak to our expert team. We firmly believe modular construction is the future.

Update for August 2019:

We’ve just been back to the site and thought it would be great to show how fantastic this building looks on the inside too:
