E.ON are one of the UK’s leading power and gas companies – generating electricity and retailing power & gas – and employ over 12,000 people in the UK. Module-AR Limited were awarded the contract to provide modular Office & Welfare Accommodation as part of an overall project which includes Warehouse Storage, an interlinking Corridor and associated External Site Works for an Operations & Maintenance Facility for E.ON. The buildings are intended primarily for servicing a new off-shore wind turbine farm. The Operations & Maintenance Facility project includes renewable technologies and sustainable building methods. As such, the buildings were constructed to incorporate renewable and low carbon technologies including solar photovoltaics, wind turbines, heat recovery ventilation and LED lighting.

The building designed and manufactured by Module-AR Limited is a single storey Office structure consisting of 17 No. modules and a footprint of over 550m². Externally clad in a combination of Kingspan silver, Trespa Meteon & white Plastisol (plastic coated steel), with aluminum windows, an entrance door canopy and roof-mounted photovoltaics for improved sustainability – the building looks well-suited to the Utilities industry.

Inside the modular Office Facility is a Reception/Waiting room with Tea Area, a Meeting room with an acoustic folding partition wall, a 161m² main Office, E.ON Manager’s Office, Vesta’s Office, Permit Office, Control room, Technicians Facility, Mess room, WC’s, Showers, a Wetsuit Drying room and Changing rooms.

The Offices were installed with suspended ceilings & feature wall-mounted display screens and the kitchen, WC’s and showers are all fully fitted with a modern finish.

All 17 No. modules were installed in just 1 day with minimal disruption to the continuing E.ON works. The building design, manufacture and installation was completed in just 17 weeks which is up to 50% faster than a traditional build.
