Why hiring a Modular Building is a cost-effective solution


Modular buildings for hire are an excellent option for companies looking to expand their space quickly and on a budget. Modular building hire is a cost-effective solution whether you require another classroom, an anti-vandal building or a block of offices.

Reducing your spending on business facilities means you free up finances to adapt to changing market conditions -a significant benefit during the current cost of living crisis. 

Read on to discover how modular building hire can save your business money.

Modular or traditional?

Modular buildings are much more cost-effective than traditional buildings. Around 70% of modular construction occurs in a factory. This differs from traditional buildings' linear, on-site construction, which requires more building time and consequently increased costs.

Modular construction also re-uses and recycles materials, further reducing costs.

Low initial cost

Hiring is a great option if you do not have the initial capital outlay to purchase a modular building. This means you can benefit from new additional facilities without a substantial investment. 

Minimised on-site building

Modular buildings are primarily manufactured in a controlled factory setting. In the factory, segments, also known as modules, are constructed. These segments are later connected on-site by a qualified modular building team.

Due to the use of factory construction, the on-site build time is significantly reduced. This minimises labour costs making modular buildings cheaper to install. 


Installing modular buildings is quick, so your facility is ready to use immediately. This saves costs associated with shutting down your business whilst waiting for your new building or expenses required to rent a different property away from your site. 

Energy efficient 

In February 2023, one in five firms reported that energy prices were their primary concern. Modular buildings minimise energy consumption, thus lowering energy costs for your business. 

Modular buildings feature high-quality insulation, HVAC systems and advanced sealing techniques. These features ensure temperatures inside are comfortable in both cold and hot weather. There is also a constant stream of fresh air, and humidity levels are controlled -protecting the contents of the building. 

Where Modular Building hire is used 

Modular buildings are incredibly versatile and can be made to fit various specifications. Due to their flexibility, modular buildings are used in a diverse range of sectors.

Education: Modular classrooms can be manufactured to include many unique features.  Science laboratories can be made complete with non-stick floors and benches, or Music suites can be made soundproof.

Construction: Building site cabins can be installed as temporary spaces for workers who need somewhere warm and dry to carry out their roles. 

Corporation: Office buildings, temporary or long-term, can be expanded using modular building hire.

Healthcare: Both clinical and non-clinical facilities can be constructed with modular buildings. 

Security: Anti-vandal, secure steel cabins protect valuable assets and equipment.

Other: Modular building hire can also be used for showers, toilets and changing rooms.

Why hire Modular Buildings?

If you have decided a modular building is the perfect solution for your business, your next consideration is whether to buy or hire. Here are just a few of the benefits of hiring a modular building.

Speed vs Price: You can quickly increase capacity or create a high-quality new workspace without a capital outlay. This makes modular building hire a cost-effective way to fulfil the needs of your business.

Quality buildings: You could hire a higher specification building than you would have been able to buy. 

Fixed rental price agreements: Renting a modular building can allow you to track and control your expenditure.

Temporary: Hiring modular buildings is an excellent solution if you only want to rent for a short period. For example, whilst waiting for a traditional building to be built or to expand facilities during an event or pop-up.

Long-lasting: On the flip side, modular buildings are built to be durable. This means if you are unsure how long you will need to rent a modular structure or know it will be required for an extended period, this can be achieved. 

Low commitment: If anything goes wrong and you need to downsize, you won’t be left with significant losses from disposing of a modular building. Modular building hire companies will remove the installation for you.
