A better way of building

Our modular building hire service provides a fast, flexible and efficient accommodation solution. Each of our modular buildings can be created to virtually any size to accommodate any number of people, up to four storeys high. 

Our scalable modules can be connected side to side, end to end and stacked to offer flexible spaces tailored to your needs. Designed to permanent standards, our temporary modular buildings for hire are building regulations-compliant and meet specialist sector specification standards for education and healthcare use. 

Algeco modular buildings for hire offer working environments comparable to permanent buildings, so you don't have to sacrifice quality for speed and convenience. When you hire modular buildings, you benefit from total flexibility - take a building only for as long as you need it and spread the cost in monthly payments. Then, simply return it when you no longer need it. 

Faster, non-traditional construction

Modular building is sometimes used as a blanket term for a range of different types of rapidly built, sustainable, non-traditional construction that offer superb value for money. Ours are completely compliant with building regulations, have a 1 hour fire rating, and can be stacked to create buildings several storeys high. Check out our page What is modular building for more information on the different types of modular building we have available to hire or buy. Or follow the links on this page to learn more about how modular buildings – both preowned and new - are used.

We’re on hand to make your project easier by getting you the best accommodation solution for your needs. If you’re ready to discuss your modular building solution, please get in touch now.

Algeco Portable Buildings For Hire

Portable buildings or cabins

Smaller and simpler than modular buildings, single-piece cabins are widely used for temporary space needs, particularly as site accommodation for construction companies. Portable cabins can be stacked and linked to form larger complexes, which is useful where space is tight.   

Volumetric modular buildings

These are buildings made from whole ‘modules’, manufactured in factory-controlled conditions, then transported to site individually, craned into position and put together to form complete buildings. Modules are most frequently made from steel for strength and durability and are sometimes supplied in ‘flat-pack’ form for transport efficiency, before being erected on-site. The level of module internal finish varies according to what you need, from basic shells to fully fitted-out offices, nurseries, restaurants and living accommodation. Volumetric modular buildings are often low-rise - up to four storeys high, with virtually unlimited floor areas possible.

Buildings available to hire and buy

Hire buildings are simpler, with less customisation available because of their temporary role and the need to be reused by other people. A vast range of external customisation options are normally available when buying volumetric modular buildings. Cladding, render and brick wall treatments, window and glazed ‘curtain walling’ fenestration options, plus ‘traditional’ gable, mono and mansard pitched roofs over and above the default flat roofs standard on volumetric modular buildings.  

Offsite Construction

Basically, this is the completion of building components at a different location to where they are permanently sited. ‘Post and panel’ and ‘timber frame’ systems are examples of offsite construction, which can also include volumetric modular building. Offsite construction is usually used for permanent buildings. These buildings can’t easily be moved or expanded, unlike volumetric modular buildings. Algeco is a leading offsite construction manufacturer. Our modular buildings are suitable for a range of purposes.
