KEY ADVANTAGES WITH MODULAR CONSTRUCTION
KEY ADVANTAGES OF MODULAR CONSTRUCTION
Short build times
Typically 50-60% less than traditional on-site construction, leading to an earlier return on investment and saving in preliminaries.
Achieved by factory-based quality control and pre-design of similar modules.
Compared to site construction, modular construction is about 30% of the weight of conventional masonry construction.
Economy of scale
Repetition of prefabricated units leads to considerable economy of scale in production.
Environmentally less sensitive
Efficient factory production techniques are much less wasteful and installation is less disruptive on site.
Modular construction sites have proved to be significantly safer than traditional on-site building.
Reduced site labour requirement
The erection and finishing teams, which install and complete modular buildings, involve less workers on site than traditional buildings.
Reduced professional fees
Standardised design details for modular buildings simplify and reduce the need for specialist design input.
