Modular Works carries out the majority of our domestic projects through our sister company Burlingham Buildings.
We design and build all kinds of domestic buildings, from luxury extensions to house renovations and a wide variety of garden and driveway buildings. Customers use the new space provided by these constructions to incorporate large, open-plan kitchen / dining areas, relaxation space with wide bi-fold doors for full garden views, home offices, studios, annexes, feature garages, hot-tub and pool surrounds, gyms and games rooms – anything to enhance their lifestyle and optimise usage of their living space.
Fast and easy home extensions
Both Modular Works and Burlingham Buildings can offer unique solutions to your building requirements, either using our system of steel-frameworked modular pods (either factory-built or constructed in-situ where access is particularly limited) or traditional construction methods where preferred. Sometimes, a combination of both can be used to achieve a striking combination of ‘the old and the new’. A common factor is that we always deliver high quality in terms of design, materials and overall finish. We always take great care to leave you with minimum disturbance so that your building site can fully return to being your home in the shortest possible time – helped greatly by build-times often measured in weeks, rather than months.
We can provide a full ‘turn-key’ service for your project – from initial scope, design, quotation, detailed plans and assistance in gaining planning approval, where required, to final completion and handover, ready for furniture and possessions to be moved in. Completion usually includes restoration of the surrounding site to its previous – or improved – condition, with landscaping, decking, flower beds, lawns, steps, pathways etc.
Experienced building team
Our team of tradesmen are highly experienced in working on domestic building projects. Doing everything from the initial groundworks to connection of services and final landscaping, they are YOUR team for the duration of the project – people you’ll get to know and trust.
We manage the project from beginning to end, helping with obtaining Planning Permission, if required from your local authority – it’s all part of the service. We have many testimonials from clients as to the nature and standard of our building work.

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
