Benefits of Modular Building Systems
Today, modular buildings are more than temporary construction trailers and portable classrooms. Whether in remote areas or in cities, modular building solutions have many uses, from permanent residences to commercial spaces, municipal facilities, industrial offices and special event solutions.
Hundreds of end users benefit from the ease of use and flexibility offered by the modular architecture. Fascinating prefabricated buildings can be of any size, multi-storey and custom designed to meet specific needs. All of this is done in shorter time spans compared to traditional construction methods.
Cost Efficient Constructions
Modular building systems have many cost advantages over traditional on-site construction. The modular structure reduces construction time and therefore significantly decreases labour expenses.
In addition, modular construction equipment uses precision building apparatus and a detailed design to reduce waste in the construction process. Modular construction enables use of the correct amount of wood and other materials for each structure.
Modular construction processes consume less energy than traditional buildings. Modular construction equipment takes advantage of the duplication of current production in line production.
Unlike on-site construction, modular waste is used without treatment. Many modular construction installations accumulate unused resources in a controlled environment and recycle them for use in other jobs. This will reduce 135 million tonnes of construction waste from landfills every year. In terms of building efficiency, modular construction is becoming a new industry standard.
The modular construction allows for faster construction times. The construction team can work in a controlled environment with convenient equipment such as repetitive technology and large appliances.
The modular construction is no longer a delay due to bad weather. Contractors can therefore achieve everyday construction goals and easily avoid mishaps during construction on site.
Minimal Disruptions On Your Business
The advantage of the modular structure is that it eliminates 80% of the construction work from the actual location of the site. As a result, schools and businesses can be run smoothly while minimizing construction impact.
Each module is designed to withstand transportation over long distances and tilt to the foundation. Once sealed together, the module becomes an integrated wall, floor and roof assembly.
The modular buildings are built from the most durable materials that enable the building to last for years. The materials used for the interior walls improve sound insulation and fire protection. The modular structure of the building is also highly watertight, thus ensuring its energy efficiency.
Schedules and Errors
The modular structure eliminates on-site problems such as access roads, traffic, hardware security and storage. The plant is usually located next to the delivery centre, which facilitates logistics while reducing transportation costs. They are also located in a shift work community, so construction can be done 24 hours as needed.
In addition, the modular process allows some contractors to do basic work because others build walls and components. As the foundation hardens, this simultaneous construction gets a structural jump and the walls rise. Because of the benefits of overcoming these delays, the Modular Building Society estimates that the project will be 30 to 50% faster than traditional buildings. Therefore, a modular building system takes a lot less time to complete compared to traditional building systems.
The modular housing and building systems is taking over the construction industry. Its benefits out-weigh previous construction methods by far. It is more durable and efficient in terms of construction time, cost and labour.
