What is Modular Construction?

9.02.2021

If you are looking for a more cost-effective and flexible way of constructing a new property, office, or shop, modular construction might be the answer you are looking for. Modular construction involves building components for a building off-site.

Instead of building on-site, the benefits of the off-site building include quicker building, more flexibility with materials, time, and cost, as well as minimal impact on your current building or business. 

Advantages of Modular Construction

Modular construction may result in your property being built up to 30-50% quicker than traditional construction methods. There will be no need to stress about the weather and allow it to cause a delay. Instead, the indoor construction process can take place alongside site and foundation work.

When a building or component for a building is built off-site, it will be delivered to the site as flat-pack panelling that is ready to build. It removes most of the construction work from the site, which will cause less disruption and run your business, home, or school smoothly with minimal impact.

Modular buildings are kinder to the environment, as they typically use eco-friendly and recyclable materials, which traditional buildings do not. With the buildings being produced off-site, it causes less waste as everything can be made in a structured process with minimal room for error. 

One of the main advantages of building modular is the bespoke design, which means that each building is tailored to your needs. Modular buildings can be custom-made to fit your exact space and budget requirements. Using modular building methods with Airspace development means using a technique whereby unused space on rooftops of existing buildings is converted into new homes. 

Airspace Development and Modular Construction

Fortunately, the UK government relaxed the residential top floors development rules in 2019. This means that homes can use the airspace above their roof to add new living accommodation. Adding an additional floor and utilising the space can add to your building’s value. 

Both modular construction and Airspace development are highly beneficial for urban properties. As there is limited space and land to work on, having the ability to build new building components off-site means the building process will be faster, cost-effective, and efficient using environmentally friendly materials and durability built-in.
