How Askews can save you time and money with modular buildings

Modular buildings are becoming increasingly widely used across a wide variety of industries here in the UK. Schools and educational facilities, industrial businesses, retail, and construction sites are just a few examples of the sorts of sectors now using prefabricated Modular Buildings to be delivered to their premises and re-constructed onsite.

The onset of the Covid-19 crisis has accelerated this trend, as modular buildings allow for better safety and social distancing. It’s a particular focus of ours here at Askews Ltd, as we provide a range of key services relating to the heating, ventilation and air conditioning for modular build and offsite construction companies, as well as ultimately the end users themselves.

We’ve explained how we can help in a bit more detail below. First though, if you’re an end user who needs a quick refresher on exactly what modular buildings are, and the benefits they offer, we’ll kick off with that. (If you’re a construction professional or modular build expert yourself, feel free to skip this section!)

What are modular buildings?

A modular building is a type of building that’s not been built on-site, but instead prefabricated in pieces (called modules) in a purpose built factory elsewhere. These modules are then transported to the construction site, where the building is assembled. The process has been compared to assembling buildings out of Lego blocks, and it’s a pretty apt comparison if you ask us!

The modular buildings in question are manufactured to very exacting specifications, so that they’re precisely configured to the requirements of the project while allowing them to adhere to stringent Building Regulations and safety guidelines.

Modular buildings can be one level or multi-storey, and are used for offices, gyms, classrooms and canteens – just to name a few.

Some of the major advantages of modular buildings include:

  • Increased flexibility
  • Cost savings
  • Reduces waste (making them better for the environment)
  • Simpler to build, reducing the risk of accidents

How can Askews help with HVAC for modular buildings?

The government’s latest guidelines on Covid-19 means that ventilation and air change systems are more important than ever.

From the Government Website: “The risk of air conditioning spreading coronavirus (COVID-19) in the workplace is extremely low as long as there is an adequate supply of fresh air and ventilation.”

We’re here to help make that process easier here at Askews Ltd. We can help save time and money for Modular Build Companies and sites, primarily by retrofitting Air Conditioning Units Ventilation, Ducting, Refrigeration, Plumbing, Gas, Lighting, and Electrical services on site once the building or buildings have been delivered.

By carrying out all this work on site, we can make the entire process easier and simpler for you. Not only does this save you time and money, but also removes the danger of having any modules damaged in transport.

Naturally, safety is of paramount importance to our team, so air and surface sanitation can also be provided.

What’s more, we can also provide 3D drawings and CAD drawings so that both constructors and end users see what the end result will look like, while constructors can work from their drawings to design the system/s prebuild.
