What is Modular Construction?

Modular Construction refers to the process of producing components, or in some cases entire structures, in an off-site location before being assembled on-site.

The UK’s Modular Construction industry includes a wide array of companies who are involved in the development, construction and supply of many materials and infrastructures used in off-site construction.
