How We Help

We have been engaged in the development of purpose built prison units as part of the UK Government’s Prison Estates Transformation Programme for the Department of Justice. These are specially designed units the construction of which is strictly controlled and confidential. Units have been designed by Totally Modular in consultation with partners and are being manufactured in our main factory in the West Midlands.


Performance critical applications such as prison units produced by us are built to meet stringent Government expectations to achieve BREEAM certification and with full traceability of materials and processes from initial design and engineering through the construction process and to include the provision of comprehensive BIM assets.

Frequently Asked

Quite often we are asked similar questions but if there is a particular question you would like answering or guidance on, please get in touch!

How do modular buildings help prisons?

Modular construction can provide expansion to custodial space quickly using off-site construction methods. Modular buildings can provide additional space for facilities such as:

  • custodial suites
  • gymnasiums
  • mail rooms
  • office / administration space
  • Faith spaces
How does Modular construction reduce base disruption?

Due to the buildings being manufactured remotely, and bought on to base only for the final assembly and finishing, the reduction of material use, energy and downtime is enormous.

What are the benefits of modular construction for Justice sector?

From temporary jail holding cells to space for expansion with minimum downtime or disruption, the use of modular building creates great adaptability and flexibility for any justice system.

Modular for Health.

From small scale GP practices to large scale hospital complexes, our health sector encompasses a wide range of building types ideally suited to factory produced volumetric modules.

Modular for Education.

We can replace outdated and crumbling temporary classrooms with a more permanent, energy-efficient building, or as part of a larger programme of new build replacement.

Modular for Defense.

The repeatable nature of the factory build process is perfectly adapted to the construction of purpose built accommodation blocks whether it happens to be for student accommodation or for military applications.
