Prefabricated and transportable modular buildings
Modular construction offers several critical benefits, both operationally and environmentally, including:
- Minimised site disruption, enhancing safety for site occupants and users
- Site works time is greatly reduced as modules arrive on site pre-assembled, facilitating the installation
- Onsite labour and associated transport activity are significantly reduced
- Manufacture is undertaken in a factory controlled environment negating the effects of external influences such as weather, which can delay build time
- Manufacture takes place concurrently with site works, reducing overall project time
Modular construction offers a genuine, fast-track method of delivering new facilities in a high-quality controlled environment.
Algeco Solutions’ modular buildings offer a range of cost benefits and reduced effects on the environment. The company provides a complete turnkey solution covering design, planning, manufacture, fit-out, installation and commissioning.
Algeco’s modular facilities are entirely re-locatable, so the end-user gains full flexibility and usability that is unattainable with traditional construction methods. At the same time, Algeco products are long-lasting and well-adapted enough to design permanent buildings.
The company’s legacy is grounded in its reputation for exceptional customer service, effective management of business operations and consistent product innovation.
Algeco Scotsman’s global presence combined with its local market expertise provides exemplary services that are tailored to meet the unique needs of customers throughout the world.
