Modular Building


The Plymouth Highways Term Maintenance Contract saw the formation of a collaborative working arrangement between Plymouth City Council and South West Highways, referred to collectively as Plymouth Highways.

With growing activities including routine and reactive maintenance, highway improvement schemes, surfacing and bridge maintenance and design services for traffic management Plymouth Highways needed additional and improved office space for their busy team.

Plymouth Highways needed to initially house a multi-disciplined team of 12 staff in an open plan office space together with a smaller manager’s office and separate canteen area.

With an excellent reputation for providing high quality portable and modular buildings Pickerings at Exeter were contacted to provide the immediate solution and to incorporate plans for future expansion. Pickerings recommended a single storey Eco-Flex modular building consisting of seven 20’ x 8’ (6m x 2.4m) modules to create the required workspace.

Pickerings prepared the Eco-Flex modules at their hire depot in Exeter Willand and delivered and installed the modular building on pre-prepared foundations on site. Plymouth Highways expected the finished building to be ready in 12 weeks but were absolutely delighted that Pickerings managed to complete the project and hand over the building within 6 weeks.

Plans are already in place to extend the building at ground level and add a second storey to meet the additional space required for a growing workforce in Plymouth.

“Pickerings really excelled in providing us with a high quality modular building that met our requirements perfectly. We were thrilled that the building was handed over to us in half the time we expected. We would have no hesitation in using Pickerings to provide our future modular buildings” – Contracts Manager
