If you’re looking to expand your business premises in a sustainable way, we strongly recommend refurbished modular buildings. By choosing used modular buildings over traditional construction, you can minimise the carbon footprint of the project and also benefit in many other ways. Read on to discover why refurbished modular buildings are the perfect solution for businesses and organisations in a wide range of sectors.



Refurbished modular buildings and sustainability

Sustainable development with refurbished modular buildings involves utilising existing structures and materials to create environmentally friendly and energy-efficient spaces. As a result, our refurbished modular buildings offer several advantages in terms of sustainability:

Resource conservation: Refurbishing existing modular buildings reduces the demand for new construction materials, thereby minimising the depletion of natural resources. By giving these structures a new purpose, your business will be helping to reduce waste and extend the lifespan of existing buildings.

Energy efficiency: Modular buildings can be fitted with energy-efficient features such as strong insulation, high-performance windows and efficient HVAC systems. These upgrades can significantly reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions associated with heating and cooling the building.

Reduced carbon footprint: The refurbishment of modular buildings requires less energy and produces fewer carbon emissions compared to constructing new buildings. By opting for refurbishment instead of new construction, you can greatly reduce the environmental impact associated with manufacturing, transportation and on-site construction activities.

Waste reduction: Refurbished modular buildings promote waste reduction by reusing and repurposing existing materials. The doors, windows, flooring and fixtures are already in place, which removes the need for new production and prevents these items from ending up in landfills.

Flexibility and adaptability: Used modular buildings are designed to be highly flexible and easily reconfigured. This adaptability allows for future changes in layout, function or expansion, reducing the need for new construction and supporting long-term sustainability.

Faster construction time: The installation of a refurbished modular building is a much faster process compared to traditional construction methods. Since a significant portion of the structure is already in place, the project can be completed very quickly, resulting in fewer disruptions to the surrounding environment and communities.

Upgrades and modifications: Refurbished modular buildings can undergo various upgrades and modifications to meet specific needs. This can include improvements to the building’s electrical and plumbing systems, insulation, roofing, interior finishes, and more. Upgrading these aspects is a more efficient process compared to purchasing entirely new systems from scratch.

Sustainability features: During the installation process, additional sustainability features can be incorporated to enhance the environmental performance of the building. This may include the installation of energy-efficient lighting systems, low-flow plumbing fixtures, renewable energy sources like solar panels, rainwater harvesting systems, and the use of eco-friendly materials and finishes. These features reduce energy consumption, water usage, and the overall environmental impact of the building.

Reduced disruption: Refurbished modular buildings offer the advantage of minimising disruption to your business and its surrounding area, including the local ecosystem. Since a significant portion of the construction work occurs off-site, on-site disturbances, noise, dust and waste generation are massively reduced. This is particularly beneficial for projects in densely populated areas or sensitive environments.

Quality and durability: Refurbished modular buildings provide a high level of quality and durability. The building is built to withstand transportation and assembly, ensuring that the structure remains robust and resilient for many years to come. Through refurbishment, any wear and tear can be addressed, ensuring the building’s longevity and reliability, resulting in a highly sustainable solution for your business.



Additional benefits of used modular buildings

We have a wide range of refurbished modular buildings for sale. Here are some additional benefits that come with choosing used modular buildings when you need to set up a new site or expand existing premises:

Ongoing cost savings: Used modular buildings are a cost-effective alternative to new construction. It typically requires a lot less capital investment, and the use of existing infrastructure reduces other costs associated with site preparation and foundation work. As well as the initial investment being much lower, you also know where you stand financially with used modular buildings. There won’t be any of the unwelcome and expensive surprises that often come with newly constructed buildings that need to settle in, such as leaks, draughts, uneven surfaces and unreliable energy efficiency.

Time efficiency: Used modular buildings are an excellent option if time is a critical factor. Since these structures are pre-manufactured and available for immediate use, they significantly reduce construction time. This is particularly beneficial for projects with tight schedules or when rapid deployment is necessary.

Customisation: Refurbished modular buildings offer the advantage of customisation. They can be redesigned and reconfigured to suit different purposes and accommodate changing requirements. The modular nature of these buildings allows for easy modification, expansion, or even the combining of multiple modules to create larger spaces.

Long-term flexibility: Refurbished modular buildings are designed to be flexible and easily adaptable on a long-term basis. This means that the function of your modular buildings can be transformed as your business grows or your requirements change. A common example is a modular building that’s initially used as an office, then easily converted into a meeting room, dining area, training centre, cycle hub, storage space, marketing suite or reception area at a later date.

Availability and supply: We always have a wide range of used and refurbished modular buildings in stock, which come in all kinds of shapes, sizes, configurations and styles. Simply take a look at what we have available or get in touch with our team to explore your options.
