Modular accommodation for our client working on the A31

Modular temporary accommodation units

Our modular hire fleet is based around a 6.055m x 2.435m module. They have been tested for energy efficiency and rated EPC B* and have a fire resistance of 30m.

Utilising their quick and easy locking system means that cabins can be installed quickly and efficiently on site. The CTX units, which can be installed by either crane or hiab wagon, can be added to at any time (with a capability of stacking three high) to adapt to changing site conditions. 

In addition to the standard units, the CTX system also offers additional features such as: 

  • Floor to ceiling glazing  
  • Roof terraces 
  • External staircases 
  • Bespoke wrapping
  • Containers
  • Stand-alone facilities
