Capacity, scale and pace: Delivering quality, adaptable modular spaces – no matter how challenging the brief.


As the demand for new buildings increases, the benefits of choosing modular is coming to the fore.

When organisations need additional space quickly, modular build is the ideal way to reduce programme times by up to 50 percent – groundworks can be progressed on site, while module construction and fit-out takes place in the factory. This enables earlier occupation, vital for schools and hospitals, and means a faster return on investment for commercial clients.

By choosing modular, you can also be sure of design flexibility and capacity to deliver on time and on budget. Our industry expertise helps our clients to get the most out of their space and building requirements – with futureproofed solutions that enable easy expansion or reconfiguration for when your organisation’s needs inevitably change.

As one of the UK’s leading modular specialists, we have the capacity, capability and expertise to deliver your project no matter the size, timeframe and budget. Our state-of-the-art factory is based on a 37-acre site, which enables us to flex to your needs with the ability to scale up production to meet ever changing programme demands.

  • 132 steel-framed modules were installed with a 500-tonne crane operation
  • The full project, from design to completion was completed within just 80 working weeks

  • We worked with Hawkins/Brown to develop a framework for the expansion and phasing of the new campus
  • The building used 43 steel-framed modules, which were installed via cranes in just seven days
  • The project required a bespoke design to reflect the high-quality learning experience that would take place in the space

Diversity: HS2 project offices and welfare facilities

  • SCS JV required project offices and welfare spaces for 15 sites along the first phase of HS2
  • As the buildings will be in use for at least five years, minimising any negative effects on the environment was a priority for the project
  • We therefore created a bespoke design that reflected the client’s desire for a sustainable space
  • This includes, rainwater harvesting to provide water for the site’s operations, low energy lighting, PIR lighting sensors, low water consumption showers, dual flush toilets, effluent tanks to minimise discharge into local drainage.

Repeatability: Nightingale Hospital Exeter COVID-19 response

  • Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust needed a new hospital build at pace to respond to the pandemic
  • In just four weeks, we designed, reconfigured and installed 57 steel-framed modules – a project of this size would’ve in normally taken four months
  • All buildings met stringent building requirements and were supplied site-ready
