Premier Modular is one of the leading and longest-established offsite specialists in the UK. We provide temporary modular buildings and bespoke offsite construction solutions to help healthcare providers rapidly expand capacity.
Established in 1956, Premier has manufactured modular buildings for more than 60 years from its operations in East Yorkshire. We employ around 250 staff and have five factories on a 22-acre site.
Premier is one of the most financially robust businesses in the dynamic offsite sector and has achieved strong growth year-on-year.
We offer a full range of design, offsite manufacturing, fitting out and construction services to contractors and clients, delivering high quality, affordable and sustainable buildings.
We use advanced offsite technology to construct fast-track healthcare schemes of the highest quality, with less disruption to patient care, improved quality, shorter build programmes, and greater assurance of completion on time and on budget.
Fast Track Building Projects to Meet Changing Local Needs
We will develop bespoke building solutions for highly constrained hospital sites which may be completely inaccessible for in-situ construction. Existing facilities can also be expanded rapidly and cost effectively, both vertically and horizontally.
Our specialist healthcare teams have the expertise to provide purpose-designed facilities for primary care, acute services and mental health.
Facilities can include:
- In-patient accommodation
- Ambulatory and emergency care
- MRI and other diagnostic services
- Operating theatres
Recent projects include a £10m contract to build a 62-bed ward block at St Peter’s Hospital in Chertsey.
Highly Flexible Temporary Hospital Buildings and Health Centres
The hiring of modular accommodation is a fast, flexible and cost-effective way for healthcare providers to expand capacity or relocate services, particularly on constrained hospital sites. The approach also gives NHS trusts greater flexibility as the facilities can be dismantled and removed if local needs change.
Buildings to accommodate wards and ancillary services can be delivered in a fraction of the time of a site-based construction solution. Critically, purpose-designed facilities can be installed on hospital sites with far less disruption to patient care.
Applications of Premier’s hire solutions in the healthcare sector include:
- 1700sqm of modular buildings to extend the Nightingale Hospital Exeter, delivered in just four weeks
- A £1.7m contract to build a 20-bed ward at North Middlesex University Hospital completed in just 16 weeks
- The installation of around 50 purpose-designed testing centres from Portsmouth to Inverness to help the Government increase testing capacity in the Covid-19 pandemic.
Frameworks to Reduce Procurement Time and Cost
We are accredited under the NHS Shared Business Services Framework and Crown Commercial Service. These frameworks help NHS Trusts and public sector clients to improve efficiency and quality, save time and money, and support world-class patient care in the procurement of services such as construction.
