Embedding practicality with a vision
What are modular buildings?
The purpose of modular buildings
So, we know what modular buildings are, but why are they gaining such traction? Essentially, they provide a fast, efficient and cost-effective alternative to traditional construction methods. Modular buildings can be designed and manufactured in a controlled environment, which minimises the risk of delays and costly errors during the construction process. Such an approach can also reduce the amount of waste generated during the building process.
Comparing modular buildings with the traditional approach
Traditional buildings offer their own charm, yet modular buildings offer advantages that are difficult to dismiss. Firstly, let’s take time into account. Modular buildings can be constructed much faster than traditional buildings, with some projects taking as little as a few weeks to complete. On top of this, they’re less expensive due to the streamlined manufacturing process. Ultimately, in an age of construction that values versatility and efficiency, modular buildings are specifically designed to be mobile and adaptable, making them ideal for a variety of different applications.
Why is their popularity growing?
The reasons we’ve touched upon are enough to recognise why modular buildings are experiencing such growth. However, it’s important to explore these specific points in more detail. Starting with cost-effectiveness, the use of prefabricated components allows for a reduction in material waste, as well as lower labour costs, which can make them a more affordable option compared to traditional construction.
Another advantage falls with the speed of construction. Since the modules are constructed off-site, the building process can be completed in a shorter time frame, which is especially beneficial for projects with tight deadlines. In fact, modular buildings are up to 70% quicker than traditional constructions. Additionally, they offer a high level of flexibility, allowing for easy modification and expansion as needed.
They can also be easily transported and assembled in different locations, making them a great option for temporary or mobile structures. And it’s important to acknowledge environmental benefits, as the use of sustainable materials and energy-efficient systems can reduce carbon footprint and energy costs.
Save yourself time and effort
The spotlight on sustainability
- Using efficient building materials that are responsibly sourced with a lower carbon footprint. For example recycled timber and steel.
- Avoiding using material that cause environmental damage such as VOC’s and plastics.
- Choosing materials with a longer life span that require minimal maintenance. For example natural timber opposed to those with treated coatings.
- Harnessing natural resources through solar panels or water harvesting.
- Landscaping is available allowing for greener spaces.
- Reducing water and electricity usage and through options such as ground source heat pumps.
Some may believe the rhetoric that modular buildings are only temporary structures, however this is far from the case. They can be designed to meet a wide range of needs and can serve as a long-term solution. From schools and offices to healthcare facilities and residential homes, modular buildings can be constructed to meet specific requirements and can be customised to fit any budget.
In addition to traditional classrooms, modular buildings can be designed to accommodate science labs, libraries, art rooms, and other specialised facilities. And it’s not just the building that can be customised – landscaping options are also available, allowing the construction to blend seamlessly into its surroundings. They’re far from hastily-built, ram shackled buildings. In fact, quite the opposite. Modular builds are simply an innovative, versatile, solution to create constructions that offer longevity and quality.
