Modular Works are specialists in providing high quality rapid build social housing and emergency housing solutions. Our modular building solutions can be constructed off-site in our UK factory unit, and we also have options for on site constructed housing where space and/or access is a issue.
Energy efficient housing solutions
We pride ourselves in offering a housing solution that is of a high quality and energy efficient build, with many architectural features and options not normally seen in off-site constructed housing.
Offering a modular solution that can be expanded in the future allows for families that require extra space, saving relocation costs. Typically a 1-3 bedroom unit can be installed in just two days for a turn key solution to housing need. The emergency housing modules come complete with fitted kitchen and appliances, fully fitted shower room with toilet and hand basin, lounge and bedroom area with fitted storage and flooring. Further modules can be added for more bedrooms or living space.
Exceeding building regulations
Many choices are available for the emergency housing units with external and internal features to provide variance in look and design. Modular Works has taken great care to use the latest building techniques to ensure excellent energy efficiency of our buildings and their longevity. Our buildings all conform to Part L and meet building control standards and exceed the latest fire regulations. Our Living spaces range can be installed with a second floor if required.
Public sector clients can access our leasing option. We can install emergency housing units on your available sites on a lease basis, offering substantial savings over current housing costs. We offer a solution to emergency housing needs across the UK, fast reliable response, excellent installation teams, full services provision from site infrastructure to key handover and future maintenance services.

Construction methods and specifications
Certain elements of our standard designs can be modified, according to individual needs – for instance, providing grab rails, wider and easier access for wheelchair-users, or adjustable-height surfaces Carepods® give you the cost and convenience benefits of a high-spec modular system, with the opportunity to get exactly the right solution for your care needs
Carepods are pre-installed with electrical and communications cabling, ducting, pipework, drainage etc for all the necessary utilities – including air-conditioning, if required Customers have a choice of shower-room sanitary-ware, kitchen units and appliances, fitted bedroom wardrobes, flooring material, overall décor style and colour finishes What starts life as a standard pod, becomes a stylish, comfortable
All of the cladding options for Carepods are chosen for their fire-retardance properties as much as their aesthetic appearance, weather protection and thermal insulation performance The external finish can blend in with surrounding buildings or contrast with them, be from a range of traditional timbers or a contemporary-styled finish – the choice is yours
Carepods are designed as a modular system of interlocking units that are pre-fabricated in a controlled environment, then transported to site for assembly This avoids the risk of on-site delays and damage from rain and frost, which can occur with traditional on-site construction The modular route is flexible, fast, cost-effective and high-quality
Carepods are built with innovative, eco-friendly materials and components – like electric underfloor heating – that deliver energy efficiency, low running costs and comfortable living Wall, floor and roof sections utilise composite Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) for rigidity, strength and thermal efficiency All external windows and doors – including panoramic bi-folds, where specified – conform
Whether your ground is heavy clay, prone to water-logging, or on a slope, we can use the best foundation option to suit – without the need for the time-consuming, deep excavation that’s required for traditional brick buildings Carepods are relatively lightweight and can very often be mounted onto galvanised steel and concrete foundations that provide
