Robert Duxbury, managing director of Collinson Construction, said: “We’ve invested significantly in our modular construction expertise and infrastructure over the last few years as more organisations are starting to look at modular methods.

"We believe firmly that modular solutions will play an increasingly vital role in creating the sustainable buildings our society needs.

“Julie is an incredibly experienced business development manager with outstanding credentials in the offsite construction sector. As part of our wider business development team, Julie’s knowledge and relationships will help us connect with more of the organisations that can benefit from modular projects.”

Julie said: “This is an exciting new challenge for me. Collinson Construction is an innovative and forward-thinking company that has created an impressive modular manufacturing facility. I’m looking forward to being part of the company and helping it win and deliver more modular-led projects for clients.”

Collinson Construction’s recent modular projects include a new training facility for Ealing Trailfinders Rugby and Cricket Club and a new arts and music teaching centre for Morecambe Bay Academy.

It is building up a strong pipeline of modular projects and will soon start work on a project to create new modular teaching spaces at Central Lancaster High School.

Earlier this year it won a place on the £1.6bn NHS Shared Business Services Framework for Modular Buildings.
