Manufactured in the company’s facility, the assembled panels then make their way onto the construction site for installation. One of the advantages of off-site construction is the substantially reduced construction programme.

Formed in 2005 as a response to the British Government’s agenda to promote Modern Methods of Construction improving construction efficiency and affordability, Elements Europe has in only half a decade established itself as a market leader. It is Elements Europe’s wide product range that sets it apart from the competition. The company has worked within the hotel, residential, care, and student accommodation sectors, and prides itself in meeting the varying expectations with a range of off-site construction solutions like the Roompod or Strucpod.

Vertex partners to improve custom-made system

Vertex have been a close partner to Elements Europe since March 2007. The initial idea was to work with Vertex to improve Element Europe’s existing, custom-made system for the company’s ever increasing needs.

The investment in efficient design has led to results: “Vertex play a big part in our process, and we are always looking to improve productivity. Working very closely with Vertex, we are achieving this,” says Graham Haycox, Design Project Leader at Elements Europe. “One example was the project recently completed in Fieldgate Street, London. This was a joint effort to produce structural LSF by Vertex and structural pods provided by us.”

Elements Europe is known for its delivery speed and flexibility, but the company wants to look beyond the current status quo. According to Graham Haycox, a key factor to the company’s success is cooperation. “Working together is the only way to improve and make beneficial gains to both parties,” says Haycox.
