MTX Contracts outlines the pros and cons of modular construction verses traditional building methods and how this can help the industry meet housing targets
Adding more space to premises, be it a domestic property or another premises such as a clinic, school or college, comes at a price.
It is expensive to have the building designed and built, especially using traditional methods. There are is also the question of disruption with contractors on site.
There is a viable alternative: modular construction.
Why choose modular construction?
Modular construction is when the structure is built off-site, in a warehouse or factory and then, once complete, is transported to site where it is connected to the current building.
There are many pros to modular construction including saving both time and money, as well as protecting the environment. It is a sustainable form of construction, using cutting edge technology as well as materials from sustainable sources. There is also less waste when building modular structures and with build time being half that of traditional building methods, it is easy to understand why clients are favouring this approach to extending their premises.
The flexibility and adaptability of modular construction is also favoured by many clients. For example, a hospital wishing to add more theatre or clinic space can do so with modular buildings, in both the short and long term.
Modular construction is a long-term solution
With the right build quality and application, modular buildings last for many, many years. The finish and style can be cutting edge and modern, or can be completed with a more traditional look.
