Reduced energy consumption
Prefabrication techniques offer a low energy approach and fast track construction processes provide low energy consumption, both equating to minimised carbon emissions.
Reduced material waste
A controlled manufacturing environment results in both improved accuracy and optimised material procurement and usage.
Bulk materials are delivered to the manufacturing facility where they are stored in a protected environment safe from theft and exposure to the elements.
Reduced site disturbance
Further environmental benefits are realised on site through energy efficient construction, noise limitation and dramatically reduced vehicle movements.
Building modules are manufactured simultaneously to the completion of groundworks, thereby significantly reducing the build programme and the overall impact on a site environment.
Pre-assembly techniques minimise transportation whilst modular foundations reduce excavation works alongside the use of less construction related contaminants or wasteful materials.
Reduced vehicular movements
In addition to significantly reduced material deliveries to site, workforce travel between construction sites is also diminished by eliminating vehicular movements to and from project sites located substantial distances away.
Due to modular design technology, modifications to existing buildings are readily integrated with minimal disruption to adjacent buildings or surroundings.
Modules are designed to be be dismantled, relocated or recycled at any point. This approach is integral to the design process and enables buildings to have a light touch on the environment both during the construction phase and throughout their entire life cycle.
Improved air quality
Many of the indoor air quality issues identified in new construction projects result from high moisture levels in the building components. Because the modular structure is substantially completed in a factory-controlled setting using dry materials, potential issues associated with high levels of moisture being trapped in the new building are eliminated.
