Saxton Lane

Experts in modern construction methods

We have worked extensively using modern methods from prefabrication, modularisation and offsite construction of building services elements through to working as part of a team delivering design, manufacture and construction of permanent buildings using offsite volumetric techniques, an increasingly popular choice for large-scale projects to maximise build quality, increase safety in construction and maximise programme, cost and sustainability benefits. 

Our team also has the high level of detailed knowledge required to work with pre-cast concrete and specialise in the complex set of challenges associated with high rise construction, including hydraulic separation and smoke control implications.

For you, this means we don’t need to spend time – and money – on ‘non starter’ options.
