About Tide Construction Limited and the Vision Modular Systems UK Ltd.

Tide Construction Limited is both a development and contracting company and have in recent years successfully delivered a wide variety of developments across London and the South East. Tide Construction Limited have an unrivalled track record in the delivery of projects using their accredited off site manufacturing system – Vision Modular Systems.


Vision Modular Systems is based in Bedford with 180 staff operating from a 180,000ft2 facility. As the modules arrive to site fully fitted, Vision Modular Systems' fast track method of construction has proven benefits in quality, safety and sustainability.

When delivered each module is water tight & fire resistant, allowing for the internal room fit out to be undertaken in a factory environment. This reduces on-site resources and waste. It is a safer method of construction which can reduce the time required to complete a building to approximately 60% of the time it would take with traditional construction.

The Vision Modular System offers superior technical benefits to traditional and other forms of construction in the areas of sound, airtightness, thermal performance, fire, structure, waste and sustainability.

New Building Regulation and other government legislation is promoting the use of off-site construction for all of these reasons. Vision Modular Systems are leading the construction industry in this area.
