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.

Modular Construction has increased in popularity in recent years, with more companies and organisations realising the advantages of off-site production – with many cost-cutting, time-saving and environmental benefits.

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.
