Who are we?

Founded by Håkan and Annika Olsson, the company was born out of a need to be better than traditional, out-dated construction methods.

Two highly qualified and innovative Swedish engineers in their own right, Håkan and Annika had encountered significant problems while building their own penthouse. They soon sought to develop a quicker, greener, and smarter alternative. 

Being based in London, the pair were confronted by an unavoidable issue – construction could only go up. They quickly focused on rooftop developments, seeing the wealth of under-used airspace as a chance to revolutionise the way inner-city space is utilised with a new technology behind them: modular building. 

But what is modular building?

Modular construction is a process in which a building is constructed (to varying degrees) off-site. 

This is done under controlled conditions, using the same materials and designing to the same codes and standards as traditional construction – but in approximately half the time.
