Modular Building – The Future Of Construction

Modular building has been around for more than 60 years. It was originally developed as a way to provide housing for post-war residents and educational facilities for the 'babyboomers'. The offsite industry has changed the face of modular building. 

It now produces beautiful and sustainable permanent and temporary buildings for many sectors including housing, schools, hospitals, and retail units. Modular construction is fast, cost-effective, and sustainable and appears to be the future of modern construction.  You can also get more information about prefabricated modular building systems via https://www.walltechinc.com/wall-panel-services.

Modular Building Techniques

Modular buildings can be manufactured in many different ways depending on their intended purpose, access, and space. A fully-formed volumetric unit cannot be craned into tight spaces where a long crane reach would be required. 

Flatpack panels could be used instead and erected on the site. These are some of the ways that you can create unique and affordable buildings using offsite construction:

Volumetric Units

Volumetric modules are constructed with light-gauge, off-site steel frames. They are fully fitted and sealed in factory conditions. These modules are then shipped to the site for fast and efficient construction. 

Steel Frame Units:

Steel framed buildings, also known as Skeletal units or steel framed buildings, combine traditional and modular building techniques to create unique buildings. This systematic approach offers greater value for a variety of building projects and has the advantage of offsite construction.
