Modular Construction News

Modular construction has become increasingly popular in recent years and has even been tipped as the future of the construction sector, but while technology continues to progress, the sector still has many obstacles to overcome. Modular construction is the method by which a home or building is constructed within a factory setting, offsite. Whilst traditional construction is a process whose primary elements are constructed onsite, modular building techniques allow for the construction of individual modules to be carried out offsite, the finished units are then transported to the construction site for installation. We're proud to offer a wide selection of modular construction news, from the latest projects and challenges facing the industry, to how modular processes can help solve the housing crisis and expert comment on the latest technologies and opportunities within the sector.
