Temporary and modular buildings

" "

A fast and cost-effective way to meet changing demands for site accommodation and facilities.

Our specialist team offers professional support in the delivery, installation and removal of cost-effective temporary buildings. A modular building provides flexibility in the design of the accommodation and can meet your changing timescales, offers value for money, speed of delivery and options to relocate within or to other sites in future. Modular temporary buildings provide fast and cost effective solutions to rapidly rising school numbers or demands for extra facilities. A modular temporary building can be hired or purchased and on site, subject to planning, in a matter of weeks.

Project delivery

HCC Property Services surveyors work closely with you to provide a comprehensive project management service for the installation and removal of modular temporary buildings.

Much of our work is carried out in the education sector. Many schools find an increase in pupil numbers means interim facilities are vital while longer term strategic plans are developed. Single or double modular classrooms can be added to the school’s buildings, either in the form of standard classrooms or as specialist accommodation providing facilities such as science laboratories or design technology workshops, with or without sanitary facilities.

All our installations comply with building regulations, providing an accessible cost effective solution to changing accommodation needs.

Our projects are managed from the initial briefing with you on site, right up to the completion of the building ready for occupation. We manage all aspects of the project on your behalf – planning applications, services connections, tender, order, site co-ordination and handover.

Modular building framework contract

Our team has recently developed a modular building framework offering improved procurement timescales and costs.

Under the framework contracts have been awarded to four modular temporary building companies, selected from a total of 11 nationwide companies on a competitive tender basis.

Hampshire now procures all its temporary buildings through the modular buildings framework, and we also offer it to other local authorities, meaning you too can benefit from the value for money offered by framework rates and programme certainty.

In addition we can offer design and project management in support of the framework which includes CDM, planning and building regulations submissions, contract administration and site supervision to completion.

Hire or purchase?

The requirement of modular buildings on a site can be an interim response or a long-term solution. In order too provide flexibility the framework supports options for hire or purchase of the units.

HCC Property Services can advise you on the most cost effective option as part of our project management service.

We are all thrilled with the new classroom and the students are really looking forward to moving in soon.

The provision is such a great help to us with providing the space to educate our large department of young people and I am not sure how we could have managed without it. Also the process for getting the job done was pain free from all angles.

Just want to say a huge thank you for the temporary classroom which will make a huge difference here at Baycroft. Your support is greatly appreciated following our original meeting regarding us needing extra accommodation.

Kirsty Hughes is overseeing the installation and has employed some excellent people to install the unit and provided brilliant information regarding this to the school.

My thanks and gratitude to you all.
