Modular Buildings - Some Facts
Modular buildings are prefabricated buildings that are built-in a factory, in a wide range of sections little enough to be transported to the building site through road by articulated vehicles or Hi-ab lorries.
On arrival at the building site they are lifted by crane and placed on a pre-prepared foundation and then fastened/bolted together to form a single building.
Exterior wall surfaces tend to be finalised at the factory, during construction or tend to be finished off on site if brick or stone veneers seem to be chosen by the builder. Similarly roof systems tend to be completed after the fundamental installation is completed on site or tend to be built-in at the factory during manufacture.
