In many Industrial and Commercial environments, it helps to have temporary Utilities buildings adding extra space and functionality to work sites and facilities. On the other hand a permanent solution is often required which Module-AR Limited can also provide in the form of Offices, Welfare Accommodation, Weighbridge Facilities and more.
Many of our buildings have been installed to cater for both Utility and staff rooms as well as Waste and Petrochemical facilities. Over the years, we have worked with customers from every industrial background and we understand the advantages that temporary Utility buildings can bring to any site.
We are capable of providing over 100 modules for single and multi-story structures. Constructed using secure steel frames and Plastisol (plastic coated steel) external cladding, our temporary or permanent Utilities, Waste or Petrochemical buildings are more than capable of meeting the demands of your working environment. Minimal site disruption is another benefit of a Module-AR building solution as we can deliver our Off-Site constructions quickly, safely and cost-effectively.

E.ON are one of the UK's leading power and gas companies - generating electricity and retailing power & gas - and employ over 12,000 people in the UK. Module-AR Limited were awarded the contract to provide modular Office & Welfare Accommodation as part of an overall project which includes Warehouse Storage, an interlinking Corridor and associated External Site Works for an Operations & Maintenance Facility for E.ON. The buildings are intended primarily for servicing a new off-shore wind turbine farm. The Operations & Maintenance Facility project includes renewable technologies and sustainable building methods. As such, the buildings were constructed to incorporate renewable and low carbon technologies including solar photovoltaics, wind turbines, heat recovery ventilation and LED lighting.
The building designed and manufactured by Module-AR Limited is a single storey Office structure consisting of 17 No. modules and a footprint of over 550m². Externally clad in a combination of Kingspan silver, Trespa Meteon & white Plastisol (plastic coated steel), with aluminum windows, an entrance door canopy and roof-mounted photovoltaics for improved sustainability - the building looks well-suited to the Utilities industry.
Inside the modular Office Facility is a Reception/Waiting room with Tea Area, a Meeting room with an acoustic folding partition wall, a 161m² main Office, E.ON Manager's Office, Vesta's Office, Permit Office, Control room, Technicians Facility, Mess room, WC's, Showers, a Wetsuit Drying room and Changing rooms.
The Offices were installed with suspended ceilings & feature wall-mounted display screens and the kitchen, WC's and showers are all fully fitted with a modern finish.
All 17 No. modules were installed in just 1 day with minimal disruption to the continuing E.ON works. The building design, manufacture and installation was completed in just 17 weeks which is up to 50% faster than a traditional build.
Total UK Ltd. required a new restaurant facility at their Lindsey Oil Refinery Immingham location. Module-AR Limited were awarded the contract to design, manufacture and install the 24 No. module, 720m², restaurant.
Externally the building was designed & manufactured to be secure, robust and maintenance-free. Therefore Plastisol (plastic coated steel) was chosen as the cladding, plinth and fascia. Due to limited space on the ground, the plant equipment was roof-mounted and therefore a protection & access ladder to the roof was installed. A timber DDA access ramp and double canopy were fitted to the entrance steel door and UPVC lockable windows with restrictors complete the exterior of the restaurant.
Internally, the Lindsey Oil Refinery modular restaurant contains a Dispatch room, Prep Cold room, Walk-in Freezer, Disposables Store, Dry Store, Walk-in Fridge, Prime Cooking Area, a large Kitchen (fitted with a 20 grid Combi oven, grill, dishwasher, sinks and storage areas), a 303m² dining & serving area (with a Snack/Deli bar, Back bar, main Hot Counter and seating/tables for 150 employees), 2 No. Offices, a Lobby, Locker rooms, Changing rooms and WC's. Additional extras such as cream internal blinds to match existing buildings, fluorescent lights, water heaters, Heat & Cool air conditioning and suspended ceilings were also fitted to complete the building.
Module-AR Limited required just 1 day to deliver & install the building and a total of only 9 weeks was needed to complete the project.
Pete Adams, the Head of Projects at Lindsey Oil Refinery, comments: "Module-AR's delivery of the project was within challenging budget and time constraints. The building was of a high quality and met LOR's rigid specifications and requirements. The installation did not create any disruption to the ongoing operation of the adjacent workshops. These are in use 24/7 - and uncompromised availability was particularly important at that time, due to a major plant shutdown. Installation and commissioning activities were conducted in a safe and controlled manner. There were no incidents or accidents relating to Module-AR or your associated sub-contractors. Their continuous to be an open and positive working relationship between all parties and Module-AR's post-installing service has been prompt and thorough. In summary, Module-AR's performance on this project has been entirely satisfactory and we thank you for your good service."
The Western Power Hereford site required temporary office and welfare accommodation for their staff to use for 18 months. The 24 No. module project with a footprint of over 730m² was awarded to Module-AR Limited due to our experience in the Utilities, Waste & Petrochemical market sector and our enviable reputation of providing first class customer service.
The structure is built with a large Office of 106m², a Meeting room, Conference room, fitted with an internal acoustic folding partition wall, a Telecoms IR space, Archive room, Staff Mess room, Locker room, General store, Tool store, Equipment store, Live Test store, Ladder/Harness store, a large 140m² internal Stores area and WC's.
The Kitchen, WC's & Store rooms were fitted with Polyflor Standard XL vinyl and all other rooms were fitted with carpet tiles for a traditional Office interior design. In the Locker room, 10 No. banks of 3 single lockers & bench seating were fitted. Heat & Cool air conditioning was installed throughout, cream vertical window blinds were fitted to each window and 5 No. internal double doors were fitted for the rooms joined to the Corridor.
Externally, the temporary Office accommodation features Plastisol (plastic coated steel) cladding, fascia and plinths, with UPVC lockable windows with restrictors. 2 No. entrance door canopies and a standalone fire alarm system were also installed.
The project was manufactured and completed in just 8 weeks allowing Western Power to accommodate the building as soon as possible. The staff at the Hereford location enjoyed the building so much that Western Power extended the Office & Welfare accommodation hire period by an additional 12 months once their initial hire contract came to an end; and they even eventually purchased the building after the secondary hire period ended.
Nigel Sweet, Distribution Manager of Western Power Hereford, commented: "I would like to that you and your team for the design and installation of the Hereford building. It was carried out to very tight timescales and met all the deadlines.
We have been resident in the building for over two months now and find it very spacious and comfortable. The speed of delivery and erection was done to very tight timescales and ,once inside, you are not aware that is a portable type of building and it meets our immediate needs very well.
I would not hesitate to recommend your company to any future clients as our experience working with your company has been very satisfactory."
