Excel Modular Buildings was contacted by a local construction company based in Lincolnshire to manufacture a special Quarantine Facility for their client ABP.
“Although this was a first in terms of ” a quarantine interior fit out”, it wasn’t a problem as we like to be as flexible as possible when it comes down to client requirements. We were given a brief by the client and the rest was left to our technical team to produce a building fit for purpose.” confirmed Liam Price.
If you would like further details of this type of building or have a special project please contact our sales team for further information.

Owning a modular building is a great way to create extra space for education or business purposes, however ensuring that it is secure at all times is something to be thought of. You usually won’t even think about securing it unlike main buildings on your premises, however making sure that it is theft-proof is essential.Although our anti-theft modular buildings are extremely safe and secure due to being made from steel, you may want to go that extra mile to protect your equipment for your own piece of mind.

Installing a CCTV System
You may already have CCTV on your property, however installing a camera on your modular building is an ideal way of deterring thieves and preventing them from breaking into your property initially. Should a thief succeed on entering, you will have clear footage of the event occurring, which will make it much easier to track down suspects once taken to the police.
Installing an Alarm System
Installing an alarm system to deter thieves is also a good idea. You are either able to connect it to the mains supply via an AC adapter or go for a battery powered option. The noise is usually so severe and high-pitched that thieves shouldn’t be able to stand the noise for very long.
Instead of leaving your windows uncovered, revealing your modular building’s entire contents, it may be an option to fit curtains so that thieves are unable to have a snoop at your possessions. It will be obvious that the building is vacant during the evenings, therefore thieves can easily use a torch to catch a glimpse of what they want and plan a theft from your property soon after.
Other methods of security to think of may include turnstiles, access barriers and intercom systems. These are of course exterior features outside of the modular building located on your premises but ensures that your building is that little bit more secure.

Modular units are great all-year round spaces for domestic, commercial and academic use. However, it’s worth remembering that to get the most out of your Excel Modular unit, you’re going to have to take some precautionary measures – particularly when the winter weather arrives.
By following these simple tips, you can ensure that your modular building remains in perfect condition all year round.
Protect Your Excel Modular Building Against the Elements
If it’s at all possible, try to use heaters in order to keep up the internal temperature of the structure and try to shield windowed areas from inclement weather. By protecting your modular unit from the elements you’re reducing the likelihood of structural damage from wind, rain, ice and snow. It’s a good idea to try to identify holes or draughty areas before the end of November to allow you plenty of time to arrange repairs before the coldest spells of the year hit home.
Add Skirting Boards
Believe it or not, skirting board is much more than an aesthetic means of home improvement. Skirting can help to keep moisture levels down whilst providing additional insulation, meaning that your modular unit will stay at a consistent temperature during the colder winter months, and costs less to heat during the summer.
Add Support to the Rear of the Unit
By supporting the hitch and back section of your modular unit, you can expect to stop the sides of the unit from cracking or warping in sub-zero conditions. This will also help to keep any door or window fittings in good condition.
Take Additional Steps During Periods of Non-use
If you don’t intend on using your modular unit during the winter months, take care to drain any water heaters or pipes and add antifreeze to waste traps in order to avoid leaks or breakages when you return to the unit.
Check Sealed Areas
Inspect all roof seams and windowed areas, and if needs be, apply caulking in order to prevent cold air or water from seeping in.

The most popular uses of modular buildings are for classrooms, pop-up shops, and living spaces. Now, imagine living in a modular building that is part of a huge modular structure. However, in some places around the world, this imagination is becoming reality, so is a modular building hotel the future of travel accommodation?
How Would a Modular Building Hotel Work?
A Holiday Inn Express is being built near EventCity in Greater Manchester but there is a twist to it – fully furnished shipping containers will be installed to create a 220-bedroom building. Because of the complexity of this project, it means that the bedrooms in the containers are fitted with interior fixtures off-site and will then be delivered to their destination when they are ready.
The project itself is part of an accelerated build programme, meaning that the proposed hotel will be completed by spring 2017. The modules themselves will be individually stacked on top of the podium, meaning that all of the guest rooms will be installed in less than a month.
What Will Be Next?
Now that modular hotels are being accomplished, what will be next? Well, the biggest challenge within the UK is to address its affordable housing shortage, as well as focusing on the environment. With engineers and architects being more pro-active with housing designs, modular design is opening up brand new possibilities and opportunities.
As well as this, modular designers are looking to vary the use of modular buildings; from housing environments to commercial ones, such as modular gyms and offices.
Modular buildings are becoming increasingly important to the UK’s, and even the world’s, housing landscape. At Excel Modular, we are able to provide high-quality customised containers and modular buildings, so that they can be used in creative or practical applications.

Treating patients and supporting the community is the number one priority for any health service. In order to be able to do that properly, care providers need to have the right space available to treat patients happily.
Excel Modular Buildings provide an incredibly versatile way to offer this space and better serve your community. We think it’s the best solution to meet the changing needs of the community, and here’s why:
Avoid the Disruption of Construction
As the population grows, inevitably communities are going to need a greater number of healthcare facilities. However, the construction of these can be very disruptive to the community, perhaps temporarily limiting services or meaning that treatment has to take place in cramped and noisy surroundings.
Modular buildings are built and fitted off-site, which means you avoid all the chaos of construction and project management and can get on with the important task of providing treatment.
Offer a Cost-Effective Solution
The construction of more traditional buildings can not only be disruptive and time consuming but it can be costly too. Modular buildings provide excellent value for money and an affordable solution to space-related problems. This means budgets can be better spent elsewhere in the community.
Perfect for Providing On-site Services
Offering certain services on-site, rather than having people go to the hospital or make a doctor’s appointment, can have a massive impact on the community. It isn’t always feasible to have a permanent bricks and mortar space somewhere though. Modular buildings offer a great, flexible way to provide care on-site for as long as it is needed, such as in a school drop-in centre, without leaving behind a fixed building.
Increase the Amount of Seasonal Care Provided
There are some treatments that perhaps require more attention seasonally but do not need a dedicated year-round clinic, for instance flu jabs. Modular buildings offer the community a dedicated centre for this service when needed, without the cost of that space sitting dormant for the rest of the year. The extra focus means that these treatments can be offered much more efficiently, with potentially reduced waiting times for patients.

When it comes to healthcare, the one word that is bandied around more frequently than any other is ‘budget’. Rarely does a day go by without the NHS being embroiled in one furore or another that centres on a lack of money.
The Introduction of Modular Buildings
Modular buildings, which are much more cost efficient when compared to traditional construction, are an entirely viable and often understated way for the healthcare sector to cut back on costs without having to compromise on quality. Additionally, modular buildings are generally far quicker to manufacture and install, meaning that the healthcare needs of communities can be addressed in a shorter period of time than would be possible by taking a traditional bricks and mortar approach.
Putting Patients First
When it comes to healthcare, it is essential that the needs of patients remain at the fore, and modular buildings offer a tried and tested way of ensuring vital medical solutions can be provided to communities quickly and effectively.
Not only that, but modular buildings are incredibly versatile; they can be quickly built and subsequently utilised as laboratories, operating theatres, offices, areas for storage, accommodation or space for various types of surgery. One of the primary benefits of modular buildings is that they can be easily adapted to suit many needs and requirements.
Another element of modular design is that it allows for easy expansion should it be required. Our constructions at Excel Modular Buildings, though robust and dependable, offer a flexibility that does not exist with traditional builds. Due to the nature of every building we construct, each healthcare facility we manufacture can be reconfigured or relocated based on the needs of the client.
Something we are incredibly proud of is highlighting that our relatively simple construction methods do not mean a lower quality build. Everything we do is done to the highest possible industry standards; we ensure that every project we embark upon is planned, prepared and designed with excellence in mind. We work closely with customers to ensure each finished product meets their needs, and will not rest until we create the the exact solution that is needed. Contact us to find out more.

Here at Excel Modular Buildings, we provide high quality refurbished buildings that are both highly sustainable and eco-friendly. When it comes to modular classrooms, we think it’s essential that they are environmentally friendly and energy efficient.
Modular classrooms continue to grow in popularity, with a lot of people fully believing that they are the schools of the future. They are designed and constructed quickly - making them a very convenient option. However, it’s the fact that they are renowned for their energy efficiency and sustainability that is attracting them to the education sector.
We’re committed to making classrooms that are eco-friendly, but how can your teachers keep your modular classroom as green as possible?
Lead by Example
A successful green classroom will only happen if everyone in the entire school is fully on board. All staff should be encouraged to adopt a “green” lifestyle at work – including in the staff only areas. Teachers should cut down on the amount of paper that they use – do they need to print out handouts? Electronic copies can always be made of important documents.
Teachers can play a huge part in keeping their modular classroom energy efficient - from turning off all lights when not in use to shutting down computers at the end of the day. They should keep doors shut when possible as this avoids the loss of heat. The use of sustainable materials is important too!
Digitalise the Classroom
Reducing the amount of paper used in workplaces is something that has recently become very popular – businesses are encouraging their staff to try and stop using paper altogether. This is something that could prove to be a success in classrooms too. Students could be given tablets or laptops to use instead of relying on paper. Going digital is definitely the most eco-friendly way of learning and could very well be the future in education!
Carry out Regular Maintenance
All buildings need regular maintenance, and this is exactly the same for modular ones, if not more so! Regular checks need to be carried out on the energy efficient systems that have been implemented in order to keep the classrooms eco-friendly. Everything should be serviced regularly to ensure that it’s running smoothly and to optimal efficiency.
If you would like more information on our modular classrooms, please don’t hesitate to contact us today! Made to your requirements, you can choose the best learning environment for your school.
