ModCell’s robustness and longevity has been shown to be in line with conventional building techniques and materials.

We use local materials and labour to deliver a high quality, modern method of construction (MMC), reducing the negative environmental impacts of building. The prefabricated panels are constructed in a “Flying Factory™", located within ten miles of the construction site. This means we keep money in the local economy.
