“We believe recycled modular buildings have a significant role to play in the current economic climate, offering innovative construction solutions for clients looking for best value. This is also a very environmentally-sound alternative to the demolition and disposal of modular buildings in landfill sites. We can recycle the building structure, which allows other organisations in both public and private sectors to benefit from the speed, quality and lack of disruption of off-site construction, while also reducing their carbon footprint.”
