Quality-assured buildings, delivered fast, safely and cost-effectively with minimal disruption to operational sites

When you need to provide high-quality working environments quickly on operational sites, off-site construction provides a fast, quality-assured, safe solution.

Minimise risk, noise and delay during construction
A Yorkon building can be installed on site in a fraction of the time it would take to construct a conventional building – with minimal noise, risk and disruption to your operations.

Buildings adapted for diverse applications – from offices to laboratories
From offices to laboratories, amenity buildings to research centres, Yorkon building solutions can fulfil a wide range of applications. Laboratory buildings can be specially adapted with hi-tech positive pressure systems and air-treatment technology. The building fabric can also be specified to provide one-hour fire containment.

“The principal benefit of using off-site construction for National Grid is the removal of building trades from our substation sites. A factory is clearly a much safer working environment than a live high voltage compound."
Steven Barnett, Delivery Support Engineer, National Grid
