SUMMARY OF REPORT CONTENTS
Between 2008 and 2010, market values declined primarily due to cuts in public
sector capital expenditure, the completion of major public sector construction
projects and falling investment in private sector newbuild. Since then there
has been some improvement in the market in line, underpinned partly by demand
for site accommodation on major infrastructure projects and the Olympic Games
Key end use sectors for volumetric buildings for temporary applications are
site accommodation, event hire schools, healthcare and commercial offices.
Over the last 10 years the main areas of demand have been the MoD, healthcare,
schools, budget hotels and purpose built student accommodation built by
private developers. However demand across the public sector has been impacted
upon by cuts at central departmental, agency and local authority levels.
The sector has undergone some major restructuring in recent years, with the
industry contracting and consolidating, a reflection of the cumulative impact
of challenging trading conditions, restructuring and the exit of major players
including; Tata Steel Living Solutions, Britspace Modular Buildings, Unite
Modular Systems, Adroit Modular Buildings, Stackright Building Systems,
Spaceover Group, Verbus Systems, Terrapin International and Vision Modular
Distribution channels include direct sales to end users and main contractors
and the hire / leasing. The hire sectors comprises dedicated hire divisions or
subsidiaries of manufacturers of modular building systems, independent
companies specialising in the hire /rental of temporary accommodation and
general plant hire companies such as Hewden and A-Plant.
The are tentative indications that from 2014 there could be a sustained
recovery in the sector key drivers including; the government's pledge to
support the development of up to 30,000 affordable homes in England and the
need to accommodate thousands of troops and their families relocating from
Germany. By 2019, it will be necessary to build single living accommodation
for some 8,000 junior ranks, equivalent to the size of junior ranks
accommodation built under Project Allenby / Connaught.
