A Midland firm which specialises in creating modular buildings has secured £4.2 million worth of orders over the last six months.

Central Site Accommodation, in Coventry, employs up to 45 permanent staff plus numerous sub-contractors at its factory where it manufactures education, leisure and commercial projects in off-site construction before transporting them to their clients’ sites complete with fitted furnishings, sanitaryware, heating, lighting and fitted furnishings.

The company’s busiest period was over the six-week school summer holiday when they completed orders which included schools and children’s centres in Birmingham and Leicestershire.

Director Mike Walsh said the firm, which has been supported by Yorkshire Bank’s business support initiative Investing for Growth, has been awarded 14 contracts across the Midlands.

He said: “We had to complete £3 million worth of work in the main school holiday which is fantastic news, but it takes a great deal of organisation.

“Our workers include joiners, electricians and plumbers since we carry out all of the modular construction work here at our factory and then transport the buildings to the sites to fix them in place.

“This not only cuts down on the amount of construction time but it is also more economic and in these cash conscious times it is a great way of achieving the same product at a lower cost in a shorter time period.”
