    Frequently Asked Questions

    What can defence and custodial modular buildings be used for?

    Buildings across the defence and custodial sector are constantly being improved and modernised to improve security, adaptability, and aesthetics. Modular buildings are a great modern and costs effective option for this industry because of their many uses and configurations. Modular buildings can be used for a range of different facilities, including prisons and cells (temporary and permanent), court facilities, general custodial space, office accommodation, judicial chambers and holding areas.

    Are defence and custodial modular buildings secure?

    Yes, as specialists in this type of modular construction, we know security is key in these sectors. All of our buildings are designed to be BBA approved and use galvanised steel. This is reinforced using steel wall panels and steel beams with interlocking and load bearing floors, making them extremely secure and professionally built for purpose.

    What are the benefits of using modular for your defence and custodial projects?

    There are several benefits to choosing modular. They are robust, secure, and built to last. All our Surecell modular buildings are fully Lambeth approved and come with a 60-year lifetime guarantee. And, as they’re built to the highest standards possible, we’re confident they will last and be fit for purpose. They are also affordable, our faster production times reducing on-site labour costs. Modular buildings are also sustainable, producing much less waste than traditional building methods and less carbon, meaning they are better for the environment, and can help your project achieve high sustainability standards.

    Can defence and custodial modular buildings be customised?

    Absolutely! That’s the beauty of choosing modular buildings for defence and custodial projects, and other sectors. Whatever sector they’re used in, our modular buildings are flexible in design, layout (number and configuration of units), size and are transportable, meaning they can be reused and moved to other locations if required.
