Elliott Off-Site Permanent Buildings

What is Hybrid?

Hybrid is a permanent building system that gives you the freedom to unleash your imagination and design your building without the limitations you may have thought existed with off-site construction – large open atriums, increased ceiling heights, outstanding features and exceptional quality.

The walls and many of the components can be pre-assembled off-site and Hybrid can be combined with the Ibex modular system to offer an optimised building solution. This method minimises disruption to your existing operations and substantially reduces programme time when compared with traditional construction. 

The Elliott Hybrid system allows you to incorporate large glazed areas providing dynamic architectural impact.

Can be used within a variety of market sectors including education, offices, distribution, health, retail and sports facilities.
