What are Modular Buildings?

Modular construction can be simply defined as a procedure of building an entire building (module) or large sections in a factory setting, before they are transported to and positioned on a prepared site, forming a building such as a home or an office block.

Our modular buildings are A Rated, passive buildings that include triple glazed windows providing an unrivalled level of energy efficiency. Modular units are fully constructed in the factory providing a full turnkey solution to include bathrooms, kitchens, bedrooms, plumbing and electrics. These completed modular buildings are transported by truck from the factory and lifted into their final position on site. The pre-serviced foundations are prepared by the client.

Multiples of modular units can be combined to create larger buildings suitable for apartment blocks, schools and office buildings.

Modular buildings are structures that are constructed offsite in a controlled factory environment, using prefabricated modules that are assembled together in the factory. The modules are designed to fit together seamlessly, and the building can be completed in a fraction of the time required for traditional construction methods.

Modular buildings can be used for a wide range of purposes, including residential homes, commercial buildings, healthcare facilities, educational facilities, and more. They offer a range of benefits over traditional construction methods, including faster construction times, lower costs, and greater flexibility in design.

Modular buildings are also highly energy-efficient, with excellent insulation and airtightness. This means that they are cheaper to heat and cool, which can result in significant cost savings over the lifetime of the building.

How Can Modular Buildings Be Used?

Modular buildings can be used across a multitude of industries including residential and commercial.

Uses include:

  • Residential Dwellings
  • Offices
  • Creches
  • Nursing Homes
  • School Classrooms
  • Workshops
  • Retail Units
  • Apartment Blocks

Why Choose Modular?

No Possibility of Weather Delay2023-03-31T15:15:12+00:00

Furthermore, by fabricating the modules inside a controlled environment, worries about weather delaying construction of the modular units is virtually eliminated. It also provides workers safer and more comfortable conditions to be more productive and produce a higher quality product.

Full Turn-Key Solution2023-03-31T15:14:08+00:00

Also, the modules arrive on-site usually outfitted with flooring, cabinets, counters, plumbing and electrical fixtures, and appliances, thereby needing little effort and time to be ready for use.

Speed of Construction2023-03-31T15:18:03+00:00

MMC saves a significant amount of programme time as construction of modular units can take place off-site in conjunction with the on-site/structural construction.

Groundworks and foundations are completed while modules are manufactured off site meaning your project can be delivered up to 50% faster than traditional construction methods.

This time-saving benefit keeps the project on schedule and speeds up construction time while still being efficient. There is potential to save 30 to 60 percent of overall schedule through a modular approach.

Fixed Cost2023-03-31T15:17:46+00:00

One of the most significant benefits of modular construction is its cost-effectiveness. Modular buildings are constructed off-site in a controlled factory environment, where materials can be purchased in bulk and labor can be more better managed.

This process eliminates many of the inefficiencies and uncertainties associated with on-site construction, resulting in a more predictable and streamlined construction process. Additionally, modular building allows for better cost control since the final cost can be determined before construction even begins, making it easier to stick to a predetermined budget.

Precision Manufacturing2023-04-14T11:11:44+00:00

Precision manufacturing ensures that the modules are constructed to excellent-quality standards, reducing the risk of errors, and improving the overall quality of the building. The use of precision manufacturing in modular construction helps to increase efficiency, minimize waste, and ultimately reduce costs, making it a highly beneficial process for the industry. Quality Control and Inspections can be done at all stages of the manufacturing process.

Positive for the Environment2023-03-31T15:20:26+00:00

The positive effects that modular construction can have on the environment is one of the most important reasons, why modular construction is the future.Less waste produced in a controlled factory setting, therefore significantly less landfill. With shorter construction time, less energy used and lower level of onsite pollution.

Also, with most of construction happening in the factory, there is less daily traffic and machinery required and lower level of noise pollution.

Health & Safety2023-03-31T15:24:06+00:00

Modular buildings are constructed off-site in a controlled factory environment where health and safety standards are strictly enforced. Workers in the factory are trained to operate within strict safety protocols and are provided with proper personal protective equipment (PPE) to ensure their safety.

Additionally, modular buildings are subject to rigorous quality control checks, which help to ensure that the building meets all safety standards and regulations. Overall, the controlled environment of the factory, along with strict adherence to safety standards and quality control, results in a safer and healthier construction process for modular buildings.

Reduced Labour Costs2023-03-31T15:27:12+00:00

Offsite construction methods help to deal with the increasing demands of Labour Shortages. Some of the reasons for its’ growth include lower costs required for construction occurring over a shorter time, needing fewer workers to carry out the job in a familiar, sheltered and safer location. Fewer operatives are needed on-site, replaced with construction workers in factory-controlled, safe working environments, producing modular pods and buildings more economically.

Superior Quality2023-03-31T15:28:11+00:00

With modular, building components are manufactured using precision equipment and technology. The factory environment allows for better quality control checks at every stage of the construction process, ensuring that any defects or errors are caught and corrected before the building is shipped to the construction site. The result is a building that is constructed to excellent-quality standards and is free from the flaws that can arise from on-site construction.
