What is a Modular Extension?


Have you ever wanted to add extra space to your home without the hassle of a lengthy and expensive home renovation project? If so, then a modular extension may be the perfect solution for you. But what is a modular extension and how does it work? Let’s take a look.

Modular extensions are quickly becoming the preferred approach when it comes to home and commercial building renovations. This is because of the range of associated benefits that they provide. Modular extensions are significantly faster and cost-effective than traditional construction methods, allowing building owners to save both time and money with minimal disruption to their everyday lives during installation. As the components used for this type of extension come in ready-made pieces, they can also be tailored to suit any budget without compromising on quality or safety. As an added bonus, modular extensions come with a certified Building Code of Australia compliance rating that provides peace of mind against any future issues related to infrastructure.

Modular extensions are prefabricated structures that can be added onto existing homes or offices in order to increase their size. They are typically constructed off site, with all components being designed and built at the same time, before being delivered to their destination and fixed into place. This makes them much faster to install than traditional home extensions, since they don’t need any on-site building work.

They also require less planning permission than normal home extensions, as they are considered “permitted developments” under UK law. As such, no permission from your local authority is needed as long as certain criteria are met – such as having an energy rating of at least B+, and not taking up more than half of your garden or outdoor area in total.

Another great benefit of modular extensions is that they are much more cost effective than traditional home extensions. This is due to the fact that there are no labour costs associated with them – since all the construction work happens off site – and because they often use recycled materials which keeps costs down even further. Plus, they can usually be installed within just a few days depending on the size of the structure – so you won’t have to wait months for your extra space!

Modular extensions offer many advantages over traditional home extensions, including shorter installation times, less planning permission required, lower cost and greater energy efficiency. With these impressive benefits, it’s no surprise that modular extensions have emerged as a choice option in the building industry.

So if you’re looking for extra space without the hassle of planning permission or lengthy building works, then a modular extension might just be what you need!
