Site preparation (concrete blocks)

Lastly, I briefly described the concrete foundation which in our opinion is the best solution, but it is also possible to prepare the substrate with concrete blocks

– concrete blocks

The main advantage of concrete blocks over a concrete foundation is that they are ready to be purchased and used in readiness. This means that you do not have to worry about the intense preparation and drying process. Our team will advise you that concrete blocks are sufficient to be used as a ground base under our building. Our architect assesses the size of the building and gives advice on the type of foundation needed. As part of the construction permit process, the local council will advise you if the current plot area is suitable for construction. The nature of our buildings is not permanent, but portable, which means that in most cases there is no need for additional tests on the ground.

Important information that you need to know about concrete blocks is how to arrange them. This will be developed by our architect during the design process and the customer will receive a special plan for the distribution of concrete blocks (as in the picture below)

The contractor can then put concrete blocks for you.
If you have any experience in this type of work, you can potentially put it. The level of concrete blocks is the most important and will be checked by our team before modular assembly so that it can be slightly adjusted if necessary.
However, when concrete blocks are used, you will be left with empty spaces under the building. We cover the empty prestige with special metal cladding in the color of the pavilion

Preparation of the area under the Pavilion

A place must be prepared before delivery of the modular building. This requirement is the preparation of the substrate. This is mainly aimed at leveling the ground / surface area. Depending on the size and type of the building, we always advise on the option. There are various types of preparation of the ground base during the construction of the modular building.

Today I will briefly discuss the concrete foundation which in our opinion is the best solution

– concrete base

The beethoven base can be used to prepare the ground under our portable cabins. The concrete base is the best choice for ground preparation and we often recommend it to our clients. The main reason is the reliability of the concrete base. In particular, if the construction is to be carried out on a soft surface, the large slab of the concrete base will prevent the foundation of the building from settling on either side. The concrete base prepared in the right way is a very stable and safe ground. When the ground base is checked, discussed with our architect and prepared in the right way, all potential problems with building settlement will be avoided.

The concrete base may seem a little more difficult in terms of preparation compared to other available methods of substrate preparation. This is definitely a more time-consuming but properly prepared concrete base is a safe, long-lasting substrate solution.

I would like to emphasize the concrete base is a universal and safe option, but it is not the only option.

In future articles, we will discuss other options for the preparation of the ground base.

Our realizations

With one click you can find all our previous realizations and see what we have been doing so far. We would like to share it with you. To view our implementation map, just click here http://efektmaps.com/ or by visiting our website (https://modernpavilion.co.uk/), open the “Our Realizations” tab.

After hovering over the map marked on the map, you will be able to find out details about the location of the cabins. You can also find out for what type of business, which cabin was used, as well as information about customers. Each implementation is accompanied by a picture of the cabin, which, hopefully, gives an idea of ​​the design possibilities. It is worth remembering that there are many options for modular buildings, and the decision depends on the requirements. We adapt the design to your needs. Some customer groups have some preferences and classic choices that may sometimes seem similar. See examples of our orders in Germany, Austria, the Netherlands and Belgium that are variable. Look at our clients in the UK that you can find and see in real life if you like. Check also other locations to find out where we were. Most importantly, with our help, you can hope that you will inspire yourself to create your own, ideal modular building project.

Which type of cranes is best for unloading

In order to unload your newly purchased modular building, we will require a crane. There are generally two crane types which we recommend using. It’s either the HiAb crane or a static crane.

During the process of unloading, the building is lifted as a whole and set in the correct position. If the building is large, it will consists of more parts. Each part of the building is then lifted separately, placed next to one another and joined together by our crew.

Prior to the building assembly you will be sent some information, particularly regarding the weight of your modular building. This is in order to help you choose which type of crane is required. We will always advise further if needed.


As you can see at the photo above, during unloading, a crane is equipped with a hoist lifting belt and a spread beam. These are used together in order to lift and unload a modular building. Spread beam can be supplied by the crane company or by us in some cases. Spread beam we provide, can be used in order to lift the building depending on its weight. This beam can be used up to a maximum of 4000 kg load. If the maximum load is higher, the modular building must be unloaded with the use of a crane company’s spread beam.

Other than the need for a HiAb crane, sometimes, there may be need for a static crane use instead. Most often, static crane is required in places with difficult access. Static crane may also be needed if the building is particularly heavy or large. When it comes to the process of unloading, static crane, similar to a HiAb, is equipped with a hoist lifting belt and a spread beam in order to unload a modular building. The price of a static crane use is in fact higher in comparison to a HiAb. If situation requires it though, the use of a static crane may be unavoidable.

We hope that today we brought to you the process of unloading and assembling modular building a little bit closer.

Unloading and assembly of the Pavilion in the Netherlands

As before, I said this time unloading and assembly of the Modular building in the Netherlands
Below are some photos from the unloading of the 6×5 Pavilion.
A very popular building in the Netherlands because it is our third identical modular building in the Netherlands.
In the near future video clip and conversation with our client.
