Frequently Asked Questions

Some people still have the idea that Modular Buildings are ‘Temporary Buildings’, this is definitely NOT the case. The majority of Modular Buildings are now classed as permanent buildings and a new Modular Building from Paragon Space comes with a 25 Year Structural warranty and a 60-year design life. However, we understand many of our Customers are still unsure what a Modular Building is and what the requirements are, here are some of the more commonly asked questions:

What Is A Modular Building?
Modular building is the term used to describe buildings that are made from one or more pre-fabricated sections (also known as modules). Rather than being constructed on-site like traditional buildings, they are fabricated in a factory in sections before being assembled on-site to create a temporary or permanent building. Just as with traditional structures, modular buildings can come in a huge range of sizes and configurations, styles, and finishes. Modules can be put together in a wide range of designs, from single story layouts, to buildings that are multiple storeys high, they are sometimes called prefabricated buildings. Because of this they provide a very high quality product at a competitive cost.
