Education projects boost modular builder’s rental division

Offsite manufacturing specialist, Premier Modular, has secured £15m worth of rental education projects in quarter one 2024. 

Further successes within the health and commercial and industrial sectors were achieved by the East Yorkshire-based company’s rental division in the same period, after it secured a 35.4% uplift in project value across all projects in comparison to quarter one 2023.

The increase was driven by the company’s installation of more than 86,000 sq ft of rental building solutions which included key projects such as the second phase of facilities delivered to Merrylands Primary School.

This was the latest of three schools that Premier Modular has supported in the wake of the RAAC (reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete) crisis.  

Premier Modular adds that its first quarter success is set to continue after the company secured an order to deliver two three-storey buildings for London South Bank University, comprising accommodation, amenities and educational space for teaching specialist subjects, such as catering training and beauty therapy.

David Harris, CEO, said: “Our rental division is going from strength-to-strength as evidenced by our efforts in quarter one.

“We are seeing first-hand the growing recognition for rental building solutions as a greener and more flexible path to expanding or reinforcing organisational estates – be that a school, airport or hospital.

“At this critical point in the net zero journey, greater attention must be paid to the impact of our built environment. Rental building solutions provide a time and cost-efficient answer.”
