When it comes to modular construction, this cutting-edge building technique offers major benefits to developers. From eco-friendly advantages to cost-effectiveness, the advantages that come with this alternative approach to construction are far-reaching – and here are just a few of the advantages of modular construction.
Cost and programme certainty
In today’s construction industry, it’s critical that projects maintain cost and programme certainty. Fortunately, for modular buildings, each component is assembled in a highly controlled factory environment – therefore preventing any diversions from the original construction blueprint that might otherwise occur onsite. Clients can therefore rest assured that their assembled modular elements were constructed to a precise specification, removing risks and factors that come as part and parcel of onsite assembly.
A factory environment eliminates slow down due to adverse weather conditions allowing construction to continue, a problem often faced when relying on traditional construction alone. Added to that a watertight structure can be completed sooner, enabling more certainty that the build schedule will be adhered to.
Consistently high quality
Quality is another reason many of our clients choose modular construction over traditional processes. Whether it’s a small or large project, our factory-built modular accommodation and pods are designed and constructed to a consistently high standard, thanks to the repetitive factory environment in which they’re built. Stringent quality control is prevalent throughout every stage, from concept to completion – which means that the final product is only ever signed off when it has succeeded in passing our rigorous process controls.
The modules have excellent acoustic, fire, thermal and air tightness performance.
Whether we’re constructing modular bathroom pods or units designed to house troops, our factory-led processes give us complete flexibility. We can take your unique brief and, using our years of expertise in modular design, create a bespoke, cost-effective solution that meets your exact specifications to the letter.
As developers and the construction industry as a whole face increasing pressure to think about long-term sustainability, modular construction is leading the way when it comes to green practices. At Elements Europe, we take this one step further than many other modular construction companies. Adhering to our ISO14001 Environmental Management System, we integrate environmentally friendly practices throughout all of our processes, enabling our clients to benefit from forward-thinking, green construction.
Reduced onsite operational costs
Because our projects make use of offsite construction, the overall number of site deliveries can be reduced substantially. Not only does this reduce noise pollution for the surrounding areas, but it also cuts both operational costs and the carbon emissions that these deliveries cause. For our turnkey construction projects, onsite staff requirements are also reduced dramatically – saving clients even more time and money.
Structurally superior units
Utilising the latest innovations in materials, assembly and technology, our systems are all structurally sound, durable and comfortable. From expertly manufactured structural steelwork to inbuilt heat recovery systems, everything about our systems embodies our commitment to cutting-edge construction methods.
