What are modular commercial and industrial buildings?
Modular commercial and industrial buildings are structures that are built off site in a controlled, factory environment, and then installed and assembled on site in an industrial or commercial setting. 60 – 90% of construction is usually done off site, before the buildings are transported to their intended location.
Real estate within the commercial and industrial sector can be hard to find. Thurston’s has the solution with modular commercial and industrial buildings that allow you to fully customise a building to your exact specifications and have it placed exactly where you want it, either as a temporary or permanent solution.
How are commercial modular buildings constructed?
Commercial modular buildings are built off-site, with the same materials as traditional construction methods, and to the same regulations and standards, but usually in less time and with less disruption. The controlled construction of modular buildings allow for completely bespoke structures to be built, with unique dimensions and materials used, such as steel, brick-effect and stone.
The buildings are fabricated in ‘modules’ which are then assembled together on-site in an efficient way. The interior of commercial modular buildings can be fully customised and kitted out to meet the needs of their intended use, including different fixtures, fittings, access panels for cabling and computer lighting.
Across every sector, modular buildings are constructed offsite and then positioned and fixed in place by cranes and other pieces of equipment. There are many benefits to offsite construction including faster turnaround time and less environmental impact.
At Thurstons, we ensure all our modular buildings are constructed to a modern standard and built with high-quality materials.
How are modular commercial and industrial buildings used?
Modular commercial and industrial buildings can be used in almost every sector you can think of from the public sector to IT. They can be used for temporary or permanent offices, clinics, distribution centres and conference centres.
In the over 50 years we’ve been in operation, we have supplied commercial and industrial modular buildings to a range of different types of businesses and operations. These modular buildings can be used in retail, hospitality and as welfare units and offices, as well as much more.
Can they be used as containment systems for IT and data streams?
Absolutely. A modular containment system can be constructed to pretty much any size or shape with a fast turnaround. They are very effective for using as containment systems for IT and data streams and can be installed with numerous features such as ventilation and filtration systems.
Do modular commercial buildings have computer-friendly flooring?
Modular commercial buildings can be customised to include different types of flooring. This includes computer-friendly flooring and raised flooring which can be really effective in environments such as data centres and offices.
