Modular Operations Manager at Mivan, Mark Hanna said, “One of the key features that Mivan Modular Solutions can offer is that with social distancing becoming the new norm, factory works can be scheduled to run in parallel with onsite construction works. This means you can be building block walls onsite whilst installing tiles and finishes in the factory at the same time. The knock-on effect can be an accelerated build programme, reduced impact of construction activities onsite along with safer working conditions and improved quality within a factory-controlled environment.”
