Is a Modular Building the Right Option for Your Business?

Is a Modular Building the Right Option for Your Business?

Modular buildings are transforming how we build and have become a popular choice with contractors, architects and developers. In recent years, the demand for a modular building across the UK has grown at a rapid pace, with more companies choosing to use this prefabricated construction method to meet the needs of their business.  As organisations tend to have limited budgets and timeframes for these projects, most are looking to build modular due to its extreme efficiency and cost effectiveness as it will reduce the potential impact on employees or clients. This makes it the perfect choice for those within the commercial sector.

While more companies are opting for modular buildings, it is important to recognise that it is not the best choice for all businesses. At KES Group, we are passionate about creating ultra-high specification modular buildings, with precision engineering allowing ultimate flexibility and efficiency for any organisation.

What Are Modular Buildings?

Before we begin discussing if modular buildings are the best choice for your business, we should first start with an overview of what they are.

Modular buildings (also known as prefabricated buildings) are buildings made up of multiple pre-fabricated components or ‘modules’ such as walls, doors and ceilings or a number of ‘complete’ units. These are manufactured in a factory and are then transported to the building site to be assembled. Depending on the building design, these components may be stacked, laid side by side or end to end in order to create the desired structure.

Modular buildings use many of the same materials as traditional structures such as wood, steel and concrete. At KES Group, our SmartBuild construction method uses sustainable materials throughout the manufacturing process and takes place in a controlled factory environment to ensure we comply with environmental regulations. Additionally, our team will assemble the building swiftly, with minimal impact to the surrounding environment.

Where Can Modular Buildings Be Used?

 When you think of modular buildings, you may think that they are only used for temporary buildings or classrooms. However, this is not the case. These buildings are extremely versatile and are a fantastic option for a vast range of projects. In recent years, modular buildings are often used for permanent, long-term or temporary facilities for various sectors, such as:

  • Public Sector
  • Healthcare
  • Sales and Retail Offices
  • Housing
  • Restaurants
  • Industrial Facilities

With such a vast range of uses across a wide range of industries. It is clear to see why more organisations are choosing a modular building over more traditional methods.

What Are the Benefits of Modular Buildings?

Modular buildings have a range of advantages over traditional construction methods including reduced cost, time frames and adaptability. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider a modular building for your business:

Can Be Adapted to Your Business

One of the main advantages of modular buildings is that they are extremely flexible due to their bespoke design. This means they can be custom-made to fit in with your budget requirements and available space. Additionally, modular buildings are designed to perfectly adapt to your growing company. Whether you need extra office space, a dedicated showroom or a new studio; SmartBuilds modular building can meet your requirements and deliver the perfect bespoke space.

Faster Build Times

As the construction teams have the ability to work in controlled environments, use convenient equipment and repetitive techniques, modular buildings are constructed much faster than traditional buildings, with a recent study suggesting that construction time can be reduced by up to 50%. Additionally, as the modular buildings are constructed indoors, bad weather delays are eliminated, so contractors can complete daily build goals and avoid any setbacks.


Finally, modular buildings are extremely cost-effective in comparison to traditional onsite construction, offering possible savings of up to 20%. There are a number of reasons for this including reduced build times which greatly reduces labour costs. Additionally, modular buildings use precision construction equipment and bespoke designs with each structure using an exact amount of each material. This means that fewer materials are used and less waste is created throughout the building process.

At KES Group, we believe that modular construction is the future with SmartBuild being an ideal choice for businesses, organisations and individuals who need efficient, long-lasting solutions to their accommodation requirements.
