Modern modular offices are an ideal comfortable working environment.
Modular offices are a trusted and attractive option for businesses to expand and renovate their commercial spaces. Modular offices have been used both in response to relocation or building works at an original office site and due to the expansion to house more employees. Some businesses have even opted for modular offices instead of traditional builds when settling into a new location.
We’ve seen rapid growth in modular construction in the last decade. Constructed to high standards in a modern, offsite environment, these prefabricated offices are sustainable, built to last and can be up to 70% faster to build than traditional construction methods.
Businesses can swiftly expand and add new services or facilities in response to market conditions using modular buildings. As a result, these businesses are well placed to grow or maintain their position as the economic landscape shifts. In addition, modular offices have built-in flexibility, unlike traditional commercial or industrial office space.

Modular Office FAQs
What is a modular office?
Think of a modular office as a building block; one piece works perfectly well on its own, but you can add other blocks to the side or on top to make something inherently strong but bigger. You can also easily pick the block up and move it somewhere else.
How is modular different to portable?
Modular buildings are generally made up of two or more modules and form a semi-permanent structure such as an office or welcome centre.
Portable cabins are standalone, single buildings that are usually brought in as a temporary measure – such as a construction site office which moves from site to site.
How much do they cost?
Final costs are dependent on the actual size of course plus internal layout and external finishing, however as a guide, approximately £850 per square metre. Read our post for more information plus the associated benefits of modular construction.
Do they comply with current building regulations?
Yes, we make sure they comply with current building regulations as part of our design and build process.
What sort of decoration can they have?
They come in various finishes and ultimately look as good as a contemporary office in a traditional building.
Can these buildings be divided into rooms/pods?
Yes, partition walls can be fitted to create separate offices/meeting rooms. You can even have full glazed partitions for that modern office look.
How flexible is the internal layout?
We can fit partition walls to create individual spaces within the unit, including fully glazed partitions. We use acoustic insulation to keep noise levels low so individual offices and meeting rooms remain private.
Is a modular building suited to social distancing?
We usually allow 11 cubic metres or 4.6 square metres per person but with social distancing measures, it’s important to allow additional space or reduce capacity. We will work with you and the latest Government guidelines to optimise the use of the buildings.
We can use your brand, existing offices or the local architectural style as a starting point to create a customised space that speaks volumes about you as a business – inspirational and high tech, warm and welcoming, safe and secure, honest and dependable.
If space is at a premium and you need to relocate or restructure your business or prepare for commercial growth, a modular office is a great solution.
