Caledonian Modular Company Profile

Caledonian Modular is a company which has been formed by the merger of Caledonian and Modular UK and specialises in the design, manufacture and construction of permanent and temporary buildings. The company offers a comprehensive portfolio of single and multi-storey buildings including classrooms, offices, medium and high rise hotels, student halls and residential blocks.
