Yorkon To Present Latest Developments In Off-Site Construction At Futurebuild 09

YK1 Christs Large
Award-winning off-site specialist and Portakabin subsidiary, Yorkon, will be demonstrating its cutting edge approach to off-site construction and a series of new developments in steel-framed modular building at Futurebuild/Ecobuild 09.

Yorkon will be presenting an important innovation in modular technology – the new award-winning high performance floor option – believed to be the highest performing floor for any modular building.

This robust and proven pre-installed concrete floor is specifically designed for high traffic areas, such as education and retail buildings, and will achieve a point load of 7kN and a UDL (uniformly distributed load) of 9kN/m2. It also offers enhanced acoustic performance, and all the speed and quality advantages of building off site.

The new floor option has already won an award for innovation – the Building Products Innovative Products Award, which recognises the best in British building innovation, research and development.

Yorkon will also be introducing its recently updated design tool, which helps architects and specifiers work with modular buildings for a wide range of applications – from offices and laboratories to airports, hospitals, schools and supermarkets.

Available in interactive pdf format via the Yorkon website, this is a comprehensive guide to steel-framed modular construction, including module sizes and options for staircases and lifts. For CAD users, there are easy-to-use files to help architects develop a building design for a specific project and produce faster and more accurate project drawings.

Other new developments recently launched by Yorkon include a new suite of ‘greener’ design options for the use of renewable sources of energy, reduced energy consumption and waste, lower carbon emissions, and greater recyclability.

The optional features include ground and air source heat pumps, solar thermal heating, solar photovoltaics, passive ventilation, combined heat and power systems, green roofs, biomass boilers, and rainwater harvesting.

The Yorkon approach to off-site construction is highly sustainable and offers enhanced thermal efficiency for lower running costs. It will deliver higher quality buildings on time and on budget, with unrivalled design flexibility and less disruption. It can also reduce programme times by up to 50 per cent, is safer, and more predictable.

Yorkon will be exhibiting at Futurebuild/Ecobuild on stand 2224 or visit for more information about off-site construction.
