With a growing demand for offsite construction, modular buildings are being increasingly specified in projects across multiple sectors including schools, hospitals and hotels. As this relatively new method of construction gains momentum we are building out product offering to support this.
What is modular construction?
Modular construction is the process of building parts of a new development or building away from the construction site. Factories specialising in modular construction can manufacture walls, floor, ceilings or entire rooms on demand before shipping them directly to site for them to be put in place.
What are the advantages of modular construction?
There are multiple advantages to modular construction, one of them being the reduction in the completion time of a project. This eliminates risks such as weather-related delays and the production of multiple areas being completed simultaneously means projects can run to deadline. Advantages also include a reduction in the amount of materials having to be stored on site, as well as reduced labour costs.
How we can support modular construction
As with adopting any new process there is risk, however, we understand this risk and the concerns you might have, especially when faced with issues such as lack of choice or the freedom to configure rooms as requested by the end client. We have the knowledge and ability to help you understand the requirements of a modular building especially when it comes to lighting control.
