Why choose a modular building?

Modular buildings are structures which are manufactured off-site in sections called modules. These modules are then transported to your site and expertly connected to form your building.

Modern modular buildings offer a permanent, secure, and energy-efficient building which will stand the test of time like any traditionally built structure. They offer a wide range of internal and external finishes to suit your requirements and environment.

Whether modular school buildings, education buildings, leisure facilities, offices, commercial or healthcare buildings, using a modular approach can provide you with a flexible, cost-effective building that looks great.

Our modular building technology

Our modular buildings are designed, engineered, manufactured, and constructed by our expert team, meaning you get a comprehensive service from conception to completion.

As modular building specialists, we have designed and developed our own DuraFrame modular building system, which is manufactured here in the UK at our own facility.

We specify high-performance products and materials to achieve an internal environment that is cost-efficient to heat and which reduces heat loss. Our modular buildings far exceed minimum Building Regulation requirements for thermal conductivity and U-value performance.

As well as offering outstanding performance, our DuraFrame modular building chassis offers a wide range of materials and finishes, while the internal fit-out can be designed in the same way as any traditional building.

We specify high-performance products and materials to achieve an internal environment that is cost-efficient to heat and which reduces heat loss. Our modular buildings far exceed minimum Building Regulation requirements for thermal conductivity and U-value performance.

The whole premise of our modular building design aesthetic is to achieve a modern, contemporary design. Our wall systems offer numerous finish options such as timber, render, brickwork, and metal cladding amongst others. Façade options can be developed on a project-by-project basis to meet your requirements.

The system is designed to be robust and hard wearing as well as being able to be covered in numerous floor finishes. It also provides insulation under the structure to minimise cold bridging, offers thermal continuity between the external walls, and allows a consistent thermal line throughout the whole building.

As roof requirements vary across projects, we have developed our structural frame to allow for a number of roof applications. Our roof systems have been designed to allow factory application in a lightweight, thermally efficient product that is either over-surfaced in the factory or on site depending on project requirements.

Developed to offer a lightweight, robust solution that achieves complete thermal continuity and weather tightness. Made in a quality-controlled environment, walls come complete with the internal finish which is overclad when installed.

Our DuraFrame chassis are the superior choice for modular builds. All modules are manufactured using a combination of welded hot-rolled and high-tensile cold-formed sections. The result is a robust, fully galvanised, corrosionresistant structural steel frame.

Why use Collinson for your modular construction project?

In-house design expertise

We have an in-house architectural design team with over 20 years’ experience designing buildings for the education, sports and leisure, industrial and commercial sectors.

Superior performance

Our DuraFrame modular chassis are designed by our in-house team of engineers using the latest CADCAM and FEA structural analysis software to guarantee lifetime performance under structural and thermal loads.

Reduced time on site

Our combination of off-site manufacturing capability and on-site construction expertise significantly reduces our time on site, helping us take the project through to completion on time and on budget.

Control of the supply chain

Because we design and manufacture our own chassis, you benefit from a primary steel frame built to exacting standards. Our state-of-the-art machines ensure a precision-engineered product.

Sector experience

We have a deep understanding of the sectors we work in, including all the relevant design guidelines and regulatory environments, such as those for the education and sports and leisure sectors.

Quality you can trust

We are accredited to ISO9001 with all structural components manufactured to BS EN 1090 to offer a full manufacturer’s warranty against material and manufacturing defects.

A commitment to aftercare
