The Benefits of Modular, Prefabricated Buildings

For today’s businesses and facilities, traditional methods of construction are becoming obsolete. The need for flexibility, combined with speed, affordability and sustainability, renders conventional building strategies ineffective. No business or facility can afford to shut down crucial space while building work is undertaken – especially on a large-scale, as these projects are regularly victims of delays.

Due to the simplicity of modular building construction, and ease of access to floor plans, you have the ability to quickly and easily allow your workplace to evolve into the shape and size it needs to. Bespoke modular buildings can provide a complete range of advantages over their more traditional counterparts – most notably, faster turnaround and lower build costs.

Whether you require portable buildings, or a portable office, you can count on our experienced team to deliver your requirements.

Why Choose Modular Buildings?

Enable Faster Turn-Around

Thanks to the availability of prefabricated materials from Cotaplan, you’ll be able to quickly and easily design the perfect space for your needs. All portable building spaces can be constructed in a very short time frame. In many cases your modular building could be completed in the same amount of time it would take to gain planning permission for a traditional brick structure.

Advanced Versatility

Unlike conventional construction, prefabricated foundations are simple to assemble and disassemble, they can be adapted to meet your changing needs. This fluidity is essential for all businesses and government facilities, including educational and medical. It would only take a few days for an existing modular building to be broken down and altered to provide the best possible space. This makes prefabricated construction an essential choice for any rapidly expanding business or facility.

More Affordable Construction

Modular buildings can, in many cases, be up to 60% cheaper than a traditional modern building or extension. That is even before you start to consider the savings related to labour and equipment. Modular buildings can also benefit from cost efficiency through building maintenance thanks to its eco friendly construction and durable materials. Our quality control procedures mean you’re never disappointed.

Less Disruptive
If you’re building on a medical or educational facility, then disruption is the last thing you need. Children and teachers need to be able to concentrate, just as patients need to be able to sleep and relax in order to make effective recoveries. Even if you’re just building an extension on your business or retail space, then disruption can deter customers and clients from coming near your workplace. With less disruptive construction, prefabricated buildings are an ideal choice.

    Modular Buildings – FAQs

    What is a modular building?

    A modular building is a type of prefabricated building in which the modules are factory-built and transported to the construction site for assembly. A modular building is composed of building components that are manufactured off-site in a location like ours at Cotaplan, then transported to the construction site.

    Using this method reduces labour on-site and provides greater control over production quality. Modular buildings are more common in urban areas, but they can also be used in the suburbs and in rural areas, and are more cost-effective, easier to transport and can be built faster than site built buildings. Modular buildings can be assembled using cranes, forklifts and other construction equipment.

    At Cotaplan, all of our modular buildings are constructed to the highest standards, using sustainable materials and processes wherever possible. We offer a comprehensive range of services to help you plan, design, construct and maintain your modular building.

    Does the weather affect a modular or prefabricated building?

    Modular building allows for construction to automatically continue in wet weather without any interruptions. Footing will go in as planned, foundations will be safely set, and the modular building will continue to be built with zero or minimal delay. This allows a lot of room for customisation, since the construction can take place at its own pace, the builder can move ahead of schedule or continue to meet the customer’s specific requirements.

    How insulated are modular buildings?

    In general, modular buildings are manufactured in a controlled environment, using high-quality insulation materials for the walls and roof. This means that the finished buildings are far more insulated than traditional site-built buildings. This alone can greatly reduce utility costs for the structure.

    At Cotaplan, our ISO:9001, 14001 and 4500 certified factory can produce prefabricated buildings to your specific thermal performance requirements. Just get in touch today to find out how we can help you.
