Our company has been involved in the construction of modular buildings and has pioneered the use of off-site construction methods since 1979.
During this time we have forged a strong reputation for the provision of quality buildings designed to meet the specific needs of the market place with the flexibility to provide these buildings on a capital purchase, hire or lease purchase basis.
We operate in a variety of markets and are most successful where design expertise and quality are paramount.
Drawing on internal resources and external consultancies we provide a full turnkey package.
Site Accommodation facilities, offices, amenity facilities, workshops and laboratories – all of which meet the latest Considerate Constructor’s guidelines, legislation and Health and Safety needs.
In the Health Sector we have successfully designed and constructed Operating Theatres, Wards, Dialysis units, Day Care Centres and Scanning Facilities etc.
Within the Education Sector we provide Admin Offices, Catering Facilities, Classrooms and Laboratories – in fact any form of accommodation that may be required.
The common theme in all markets is that we take an open minded approach to your requirements when preparing the design rather than restricting ourselves to a single form of construction or rigid module sizes
To this end we design according to your needs, using timber frame, steel frame and traditional methods of construction where appropriate.
Within the healthcare sector, all designs comply with the relative HTM, HBN, Building Regulation requirements and good practice. We offer the best value for money when all aspects of the project are considered.
Health & Safety
The Actiform group prides itself on an exemplary health and safety record on-site, with over 300,000 man hours worked since 2010 without having a reportable incident.
We regularly work alongside the members of the UKCG companies who regularly audit us for conformity to their own high standards.
Actiform were the first UK Modular building manufacturer and installer to develop a low level lifting method of installation, this involved the lifting eyes for the crane shackles being located in the bottom of the steel frame structure rather than the top of the columns, this prevents any requirement for the operatives having to gain access to the roof of the individual modules where it is difficult to provide edge protection.
All of our site operatives have to, as a minimum be holders of a current CSCS card, all of our site managers are holders of an SMSTS site managers qualification and all lifting operations are overseen by a qualified Appointed Person, be it directly employed by Actiform or by the crane operator utilised on that particular contract.
Environment & Sustainability
The Actiform group are committed to continuous improvements in environmental performance, all of our waste, although minimal in comparison to traditional methods of construction, is disposed of responsibly if not recycled.
All of our materials are sourced where possible from ISO 14001 certified suppliers and we ask all timber to be accompanied by an FSC certificate.
Our installations have many sustainable options such as installing renewable energy solutions, rainwater harvesting, solar panels, wind turbines and the like. We also offer the provision of PIR activated lighting and waterless urinals.
Proof of our ability to perform in this field comes in the shape of successfully delivering numerous BREEAM certified contracts.
We are committed to obtaining repeat business by recommendation. To achieve this end we ensure that all projects are professionally carried out to your satisfaction within the agreed parameters. It is not our policy to make rash promises and we are particularly keen to ensure that agreed programmes are always met and where possible improved upon.
All the members of our team have extensive experience in meeting your needs and are committed to maintaining an amicable partnership with the you rather than take a combative contractual stance.
We are justifiably proud of our reputation and confident that we will, as always, perform as promised. You can employ the Actiform Group with confidence.
