Do you need Planning Permission?

  • You require planning permission if your modular building is on site for more than 28 days.

Is your modular building exempt from Building Regulations?
Your building is exempt if it’s…

  • a temporary building not on site for more than 28 days
  • a site sales office not containing sleeping accommodation
  • a construction site office not containing sleeping accommodation
  • a single storey building <30m2 floor area and >1m from the site boundary

Typical programme example:
Take a typical 100 person Progress® office, without any particularly difficult site enabling works on a greenfield site. After placement of the order, a traditional contractor might take 2 weeks to mobilise and a further 50 weeks to build. A total of 52 weeks. A modular building would typically take 2 weeks to complete detailed design and then 4 weeks to procure and manufacture the modules in the factory during which time enabling works and foundations can be constructed.

Installing the modules will typically take 2 weeks and then site finishing and external works might take a further 6 weeks depending on the complexity. A total of 14 weeks is significantly less than a traditional build. Where the site is more complicated and where phasing and decant is required, volumetric buildings offer the advantage of a vastly improved programme with the equivilent to or better quality of finish.

Buildings can be further enhanced with the inclusion of a whole range of additional options and features designed to optimise your environment. These can include large glazing, eco friendly options, canopies, kitchens, sun screens, etc as well as the ability to personalise your building with vinyl wraps allowing it to stand out or blend into the surrounding environment.
