Modular Works design and factory build our modular buildings, surpassing building construction standards and specifically UK building regulations. Our modules either commercial or private have exceptional build quality and the highest levels of insulation to maintain exceptional thermal efficiency.
Working with social housing providers
Social housing design requirement differs from location to location and the views of the local planning authority. The basic requirements, however, stay the same in delivering a cost effective housing solution of good quality and design that meets the need in the local area. Modular works aims to work with social housing providers to deliver this cost effective rapid build solution that meets the requirements.
We can offer a maintained lease housing solution, on both council owned land and land that we have acquired, at substantial savings over rates being paid by local authorities for both emergency and longer term housing, typically in excess of 25%.
Built in Norfolk
All our range of living spaces, care pods, educational buildings and commercial buildings are manufactured entirely at our factory in the UK, they can be equipped and completely finished giving our business and private clients complete cost certainty by reducing work required on site to a bare minimum. In some circumstances due to site access, or attaching to existing buildings building installation, work has to be done on site. Our teams of experienced fitters can carry this out if required from groundwork to a final turn key solution.
Six week lead time
Smaller buildings can be delivered and be ready for immediate occupation in six weeks from order. Completed buildings are protected before delivery to site where the building is lifted into place using a Hiab or small crane onto a “Jackpad” foundation system or floating concrete pad.
Our living spaces housing solution and care pods are also ideal for remote or difficult locations where it is hard to access building materials and competent contractors.
Our designs provide instant, relocatable buildings, anywhere. Living spaces offers an exciting new range of self-contained homes, they are fully compliant with Part ‘L’ of UK building regulations (required for living accommodation in UK) and provided fully equipped and furnished, ready for occupation. These buildings, like all our building modules, commercial buildings, health care buildings, school buildings, emergency housing, can be specified to very high standards of finish – in fact we supply them for luxury hotel and wedding venue accommodation.
Prices for custom buildings, spaces, care pods and social housing projects are design dependent, please contact us to discuss your requirement and budget expectations.
Lead times are currently around 8 weeks. Delivery and connection to local services (if required) is additional and depends on your location and access to the site.

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
