Savings

Using offsite construction in light gauge steel or timber minimises the adverse impact of construction on the environment both in terms of energy requirements and site impact. Module200 structures have a low carbon footprint, high reusability and are built to last.

Off-site manufacture of units means that processes which occur in sequence in conventional construction can be carried out simultaneously, resulting in faster build times.  

Aspects of construction normally carried out at a late stage, including the fitting of bathrooms and interior decoration, can be completed in an off-site factory location even whilst the foundations are being dug. The first completed modules can be erected on site whilst other module units are still being manufactured. 

Lower structural weight reduces material and transportation costs and reduces foundation requirements. Standardisation of parts and units reduces complexity and waste at all stages of the project. 

The modular construction industry delivers on time and on budget far more often than conventional construction techniques. Offsite construction minimises the downside risk to construction projects in a number of ways. .

  • Factory construction is not affected by adverse weather conditions; units can be made weatherproof prior to delivery and assembly
  • Rigorous quality control to build tolerances not possible using conventional construction techniques reduces the risk of unforeseen complications. 
  • Site safety records for modular construction projects are better.
